A message from the Principal

Slavenka "Our summer school will provide a real boarding school experience, but more importantly developing the students’ academic, personal and social skills. The course aims to develop every student to become a global citizen - aware of the world around them and the impact they can make on it.

Our programme blends the improvement of English skills with team-building, leadership, and public speaking. Students from around the world will be making new friends and gaining cross-cultural understanding. Our activities, and community social responsibility projects, improve the students’ understanding of the world and ways they can help.

Students will be expected to work hard, but will have time to enjoy themselves and relax - early morning exercise, yoga, mindfulness, football, rugby, combined with chess, coding club, arts and performance.

We aim for this to be a life-changing few weeks for every student - a summer to remember."

Our philosophy - bringing together children from across the world

Our students have the potential to make an impact on the world. We aim to develop their skills for life - not just their communication skills, but their understanding of other cultures , their teamwork and leadership skills, and their confidence in their own abilities.

Our courses get students talking to each other, discussing topics that make them think critically about the world around them and give them an understanding of how other people see the world. They start to view themselves as global citizens, and learn that language is the key tool to developing cross-cultural links. With our community and social responsibility projects students learn about those less fortunate than themselves, and do work to help them.

Learning more than English

Our lessons and activities are integrated to give each student real-world situations where they can use and improve their English. Students learn from, and work with, their classmates.

Students learn social and personal skills with activities that help them discover what is best for their physical and mental wellbeing.

Our teachers are all qualified native-speaking teachers of English who aim to inspire, motivate and empower their students to use and develop their skills.

Each student's programme is available online and on their mobile. We use the latest classroom technology which allows students to use their own mobile/tablet device in the classroom to engage with the class and continue their learning after the lesson has finished.

Home away from home

We understand that students are going away from their home and parents. Our Welfare Team provides care and support for both students and parents. We are available to help before the student arrives and throughout their stay.
