Our school was founded with a basic principle in mind: the very best combination of British and Hungarian education.
Native speaking Teachers
Every single teacher in our school is a native English speaker. This helps children getting familiar with the perfect pronunciation but teachers also bring in their own unique cultural elements to the classroom.
Courses for all levels
We teach English Language and Literacy to children aged 4 to 18. There are classes for second language learners (all levels), native speaker children (all ages) and exam classes (B2 & C1) for teenagers.
Easy to reach locations
ESB has two school locations: in II district at 2-4 Tárogató út which is at the bottom of Hüvösvölgyi út, close to Pasaréti tér and the Budagyöngye shopping centre. The second location is at Apor Vilmos Ter in district XII, close to MOM shopping centre.
The ESB experience
English School of Budapest is not just an afternoon school. It’s so much more! Children will learn English in a fun way while also getting educated on a range of practical topics thanks to our unique approach and curriculum.
Teachers and our team
We are proud to have a teaching staff that is young, enthusiastic and very, very friendly!

Extra curricular activities
Several programmes are organised over the year to allow a broader range of experiences through events, typical of a UK school.
Meet the team
Hello! We are looking forward to meeting you in person – until then, here is our short introduction.
Let us show you how we can help besides teaching English!
ESB is exactly for you if...
you want your child to...
your child is...
We know it is not easy. Read our director's message for you
Through our years of experience, we learned what parents are struggling with… and we are here to help!
Dear Parents! I know how you feel!
As a father of 5 children my main parental role has been the family taxi driver. Barely appreciated by my 5 loyal clients and not even a hint of a tip!
Although they have now grown up, the weekly schedule of trying to plan everybody’s after school schedule was a challenge. Football, fencing, folk dancing and a continuing list of absolutely “Daddy, I have to go to…” activities, all impossibly available for the same afternoon. We taxi drivers are stressed!!
At ESB we recognise these dilemmas and have 20 different classes from Monday to Saturday at two different locations to give parents the greatest number of options.
Our classrooms at Tarogato u ( II) and Apor Vilmos ter ( XII) are planned to be no more than 10 minutes drive from your Buda home or school. Of course we will recommend which classes are best for your children but importantly, there is a choice.
ESB is all about options and opening doors...
Squeezing in yet another extra curricular activity for your children is not easy but we are happy to help!
Reachable in 10 minutes
Our locations at 2nd and 12nd district were carefully selected with the purpose of not being more then 10 minutes drive from your local Buda home or school.
Scheduling is a breeze
We offer 20 different classes from Monday to Saturday at 2 locations to give parents the greatest number of options.
ESB is great value
Our true competition are actual British private schools in the UK. Same level of care, same quality but at a fraction of the price (and of course those are not 10 minutes away!)
We are grateful for the kind words from the parents of the hundreds of children who already attended ESB.
