The pastoral organization of the College encourages a positive relationship between pupils and members of staff and between the different nationalities.The English College in Prague building used by the English College was initially constructed as a school in 1889 and was completely re-furbished and re-equipped during 1994, in 1996 and again in 2000, when an extension was added.All pupils at The English College in Prague are charged fees, but sponsors in both the United Kingdom and the Czech Republic have established a Bursary Fund, enabling reduced-fee places to be available for Czech pupils.
