Coat of Arms

An Education Franchise with a Coat of Arms

In recognition of the Saxoncourt Group’s contribution to global English education through Shane English School, in 1998 Shane English became the proud recipient of their very own Coat of Arms. This prestigious award has endowed Shane English Schools worldwide with tremendous honour and has further strengthened their dedication to excellence.

To date, Saxoncourt’s Shane English School remain the only language school of its kind to have received the honour of a heraldic crest issued by the College of Arms.
