St Giles International receives Queen's Award

28 April, 2015

English language provider St Giles International, celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, has received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category.

The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are announced annually by Her Majesty The Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister and are regarded as one of the UK’s highest accolades of business success. St Giles International is one of only 105 businesses recognised in the International Trade category in 2015.

The company will be visited by a Royal representative and will receive a crystal bowl in honour of the achievement. The Managing Director of St Giles, Mark Lindsay, has also been invited to attend a reception at Buckingham Palace in July 2015.

Last year, St Giles International was listed 77th in a Sunday Times International Track listing of the 200 UK companies with the fastest overseas sales growth within a two-year period.

Hannah Lindsay, St Giles Group Sales and Marketing Director, said, “We are delighted to win this very prestigious award in our 60th year; it is a fantastic mark of how far we’ve come during that time. With our long history behind us, we feel it is important to learn and adapt so that we continue to meet the needs of our students and agents around the world, and this award is a sign that we are continuing to do this.”

The first St Giles school was established in the Soho district of London in 1955 by Paul Lindsay. Still a family-owned business, the company now boasts seven year-round centres in the UK, USA and Canada, as well as 14 junior summer centres.
