The London Finishing Academy offers outstanding courses set in the most luxury location of The Goring Hotel London. The courses will appeal to women and men of all ages who are seeking a unique international etiquette and protocol education that cannot be found elsewhere. Our courses are completely bespoke and at the highest level, delivered within an immersive experience.

Isobel Kershaw, The Founder and Course Director takes pride in designing a range of courses, each with different goals and direction.  The Academy is focussed on creating courses that cover everything we believe our global client is looking for, but also far more. We are not an ordinary finishing school; you will not find any other courses with our curriculum or with our guest speakers.

London Finishing Academy Students


Our 4-day non-residential course takes place within one of the most prestigious hotels in London. The Goring Hotel, in Belgravia, is the only hotel to have been awarded the Royal Warrant by Her Majesty The Queen, received in 2013. It is the closest hotel to Buckingham Palace and was indeed the hotel where The Duchess of Cambridge spent the night before her wedding in the Royal Suite. Imagine such an environment to study modern etiquette and life skills. The Academy not only offers the core etiquette modules that set the foundation, but also includes an array of elite guest speakers and trainers in one exclusive week of self-discovery and social development taught at the highest level.

This course is designed to attract women and men of all ages. The key skills you will learn are elevated life skills from which everyone will benefit from outside of a classroom, office or home.

Our student is both national and international, and with The Goring, a quintessentially English hotel setting the scene, you will feel confident in the level of education, experience and service you will receive from the moment you book to the end of your week with us. With tailor made and completely bespoke courses, that are unique to The London Finishing Academy, your choice to invest in your personal development with us is paramount

THE 1, 2 and 3-DAY COURSEs

Our  1, 2 and 3 day courses are an opportunity to offer different subject modules which will attract different audiences.

Our first 3 day course held in June 22, was held at Somerley House and The Goring Hotel

Somerley house is Home to Viscount and Viscountess Normanton, where our guests  felt like they had stepped into the pages of history in these magnificent and regal surroundings. From the moment of arrival , they  felt like they were living the life of royalty. The house was exclusive to The Academy’s guests who had full and private access to take in the most inspiring beauty that the house has to offer. A day was spent with creative and inspiring trainers, as well as indulging in the Fine Dining and Afternoon Tea experience.

Each 3 day experience is unique and therefore not repeated. 

Each course is designed to attract the discerning lady or gentleman who wishes to invest in a unique self-development course with the addition of an unrivalled experience at a luxury venue.
