About EF Academy Torbay
EF International Academy is part of EF Education, the world’s leading private education organisation. Founded in 1965, EF has helped more than three million students realise their ambitions of studying abroad. With 40,500 employees and 500 schools and offices in 53 countries, EF has a truly global reach.
EF International Academy is our most recent innovation to help international students achieve their full potential through the IGCSE, IB Diploma Programme or A Level studies. The majority of our students progress to university courses in the UK and the USA.
EF International Academy presently operates in three locations – Torbay, Oxford and New York; established in 2005 , our school currently has 260 students from 30 different countries.
Our pastoral care is second to none. We understand the many difficulties overseas student may encounter studying abroad and we place great emphasis on our responsibility to support, guide and assist our students in adjusting to life in the UK. The majority of our students are housed in one of our purpose built modern boarding houses whilst a few are housed with local families who have been visited and vetted by our staff.
EF's vision is to grow; because it is challenging, exciting, rewarding, and creates opportunities for everyone. Growth means not only an increase in size, but also in the quality of our programmes and the personal growth and development of EF's most important asset, our people, both professionally and personally.
EF's mission is to break down barriers of language, culture and geography.
