Company Background

Language School 360 is a young and dynamic company offering a bespoke Admin & Booking System packed with functionality for boutique language and summer schools.

Founding Directors Steve and Shival have been developing bespoke Management Information Systems for summer schools for over 15 years and using the knowledge, expertise and experience acquired over the last two decades, they have developed the Language School 360 solution.

The scope of our product, which is personalised, adapted and optimised to each school, is far-reaching and is designed to be a one-stop shop, offering a 360° approach to managing a year-round boutique language school or seasonal single or multi-centre summer school.

“Train [staff] so they can leave, but treat them so they want to stay” [Richard Branson] is often the approach used by modern, dynamic and ambitious companies when managing their staff. Language School 360 believes in the same approach when dealing with its customers.

Language School 360 is a small company offering customer care on a level that you might never have experienced within the IT Solutions industry before. Our contractual arrangements are such that our customers can leave us at any time; but considering the scope and quality of our product and the extremely high service levels we offer, they choose to look no further.
