Did you know? I travelled around the world for 6 months across Canada, Fiji, Australia, Bali, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand in 1989.
Jenny fell in love with Italy when she spent 2 weeks with a family in Bassano and then worked in Sicily as an au-pair. After a 9 career in Human Resources she retrained and taught teenagers on study holidays in Nottingham and London as well as immigrants in the UK.
Arriving in Italy in 1992, Jenny worked at both The British Schools in Schio & Valdagno before becoming owner of the latter in 1995.
Since then, she has developed the role of the school offering courses at all levels to all ages in the local community, working with many of the companies in the Valle dell’Agno and hand-in-hand with school in the area, giving local young people the opportunity to learn with professional, qualified native speaking teachers.
