Naples state school Liceo Piero Calamandrei from Italy, and Halkida private language school ELC Anyfadis from Greece, have been both awarded prestigious 2016 Cambridge English Preparation Centre Awards, in recognition of the schools’ excellent performance in customer service and support for students, parents and teachers.

Gina Ann Rose, who is in charge of English Language Exams in Liceo Piero Calamandrei, and Christina Anyfadis, Owner of the ELC Anyfadis, received the award from David Baker, Assistant Director of Network Services, at a special ceremony held in Cambridge on 30th July.

Alberto Svelto, Head of Network Services in Southern Europe, commented:

This Award recognises the valuable contribution made by both schools when preparing their students for Cambridge English exams; the schools also deliver outstanding customer service, which significantly supports our commitment to put customers at the heart of everything we do.’

Entrants for the Preparation Centre Awards had to demonstrate improved service for students, parents and teachers, and show how digital technology was being used to support exam preparation. Although Liceo Piero Calamandrei is based in an underprivileged suburb of Naples, it tries to give as many students as possible the opportunity to take Cambridge English exams including Cambridge English: Preliminary and Cambridge English: First.

“Results obtained by students is probably the highest reward for anyone who has chosen to dedicate their life to teaching. However, working as a Cambridge preperation centre is  for us an honour and a privilege,not only because Cambridge is the the most prestigious and highly acclaimed language examination body but also because it is truly an inspirational organisation to work with. Liceo P. Calamandrei is extremely honoured to receive this award as the only Italian state school ranking in the 16 centres chosen worldwide. Thank you Cambridge for the honour bestowed on us and for a truly magnificent experience”, states Gina Ann Rose. 

IMG_3424 Large.jpgIt is a great privilege and honour to be ranked by Cambridge as one of the 16 best Cambridge Exam Preparation Centres in the world and to receive this award. It is wonderful to be regarded as one of the best Preparation Centres by the most prestigious and widely respected language examination body. It is hard work to try and maintain a very high result record, which becomes disproportionately difficult when you have to prepare large numbers of candidates. Besides our clients who never fail to acknowledge this fact, now comes the appreciation of Cambridge itself in this wonderful way. We thank you very much” stated Chris & Christina Anifadis, owners of ELC Anifadis.
