RESIDENTIAL ACCOMMODATION

The Junior boarding houses were opened in 2014 and provide a purpose-built boarding environment. Accommodation in these houses offers spacious, comfortable dormitories, each with a common area and shared bathroom. Each boarding house also has a large common room equipped with sofas, TVs and study areas.

Accommodation is also available within the Crescent Houses. These recently refurbished houses each provide 4 x six-bedded dorms with shared bathrooms with a large and comfortable common room between wings, so they are perfect for groups that would prefer to stay together.

 

COURSE OVERVIEW

These summer English courses are designed to give students the opportunity to practice their English in a friendly, multicultural environment. Students are actively encouraged to practice their English with students from other nationalities, both in class and outside. We concentrate on raising their confidence and fluency, and bringing out the English they already know, but can’t yet use.

About the courses:

Five levels from Elementary to Advanced

  • All students are tested on arrival to grade their spoken and written English to place them in the class of the correct level
  • 15 hours of teaching per week from qualified teachers including project work to allow them to use their English creatively and learn more about British culture and history
  • A certificate on completion of their course
