LOCATION

The site of this college lies on the lower slopes of the Malvern Hills in Central England. The region contains some of England’s loveliest countryside. The college itself is part of a government recognised 'area of outstanding natural beauty'.

The town of Malvern, with a population of around 40,000, is statistically one of the safes t towns in the whole of the U.K., and is a cultural centre in its own right. Students staying with us are living and learning away from the dangers and distractions of many big cities.

The school central location does however provide the opportunity to arrange supervised excursions to various cities around us on a regular basis.

 

RESIDENTIAL ACCOMMODATION

Various types of accommodation are available, to suit different requirements.  The vast majority of students choose to stay on campus in one of the school residential houses, divided by age and sex.

Host families, superior and self-contained rooms are also available for an extra charge. Share d bedrooms are the most popular choice for teens and children. These are normally placed in 4 bedded rooms, with some in 6-8 bedded rooms . Bunk beds are provided for these students.

The standard of the accommodation is clean and comfortable but not luxurious, since students spend very little time in their rooms due to the full programme provided. Students normally share rooms with students of a different nationality to produce an international mix. A weekly laundry service is provided. Clean bedding is provided weekly and communal areas are cleaned daily.

 

WELFARE

Welfare is extremely important. The school specialist Student Services department is run by full-time experienced staff who are responsible for every aspect of student health and well-being, as well as accommodation and transport.

Staff is aware that they are dealing with young people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Regular meetings ensure all staff is kept up-to- date on issues involving students. The college also employs a school nurse/matron to deal with health matters, and students may visit local doctors when necessary.

The college welcomes students from all religions. Special arrangements can be made for the observance of any religion, respecting the wishes of parents.  All students are given a campus tour at the start of the course to familiarise them with their surroundings. All under 18’s are individually checked into their bedrooms at night and woken up for breakfast in the morning. There is always a t least one member of staff in residence in every house containing under 18’s .

 

LESSONS

The day after their arrival students take a written test and are placed in classes according to age and English language ability. EFL teachers teach general English, involving the key skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking.  A new topic and grammar point are introduced every week, allowing new students to start afresh from the week they arrive.

All students receive a t least 16 hours per week in class. Attendance is compulsory for all students.  Lessons normally take place in the morning, with afternoon lessons for younger students. Additional conversation classes can be taken on some days, free of charge, for any student, instead of

activities.  The maximum class size is 16, with 12 being the average. At the end of the course every student receives an attendance certificate, together with a teacher ’s report on his or her progress .

 

MEALS

Three meals are provided daily on-campus during the week for all students, and are included in the fees. Brunch may be offered as an alternative to breakfast and lunch at weekends. The college operates a smartcard system, allowing students to purchase extra items if required. Students going on full-day excursions do need to purchase their own lunch, since meals are not provided off campus.

Care is taken to provide not only a balanced diet but also meals that suit international tastes in general. Vegetarian and other special diets, including religious dietary requirements, are catered for upon request and a choice is always available.

 

LAUNDRY

Reasonable amounts of College-approved ‘formal’ clothing (see ‘Dress Code ’) are accepted each week. Please ask us for a list.  All bed linen is provided and washed by the College weekly. A coin-operated launderette is also available on campus for other casual wear. Please note that all clothes to be washed MUST be clearly labelled with the student’s name. The college cannot be held responsible for any items of clothing that go missing.

 

EXCURSIONS

Two excursions each week – one full day and one half day –are included in the price for all courses. These are prepared and supervised by the school staff, with under 16’s always accompanied. Students normally receive a briefing from teachers during the week, with further information available in the library. Half day trips would normally be at Cheltenham, Worcester, Hereford and Gloucester.

§       Full-day trips:     Oxford, Bath, Stratford-upon-Avon, Cardiff.

§       Optional trips:    (additional charge) London (tour or shopping), Alton Towers Fun Park, Cadbury’s Chocolate Factory, Warwick Castle.

 

ACTIVITIES, SPORTS AND FACILITIES

One of the greatest advantages of this college is the magnificent campus, which is one of the best in the country for a privately-owned residential language school. We aim to provide all the necessary facilities needed for students on one site.

70 acres (28 hectares) of private grounds include a well-stocked library, self-access centre , up-to-date compute r rooms (for academic and personal use ), 15 classrooms, common room areas, a multi -gym, a licensed private bar for over 18’s , and various other specialist rooms.

Students do not need to travel or pa y for mainstream on-campus activities, which are supervised by the school staff in a safe environment.

Activities are organised on a daily basis, they include tennis, table tennis, indoor and outdoor basketball, football, grass skiing, swimming in our outdoor heated pool, volleyball, fencing, indoor and outdoor badminton), excursions (one full day and one half day excursion per week included in quote , for example visits to Cheltenham, Worcester, Oxford, Stratford, Cardiff, Bristol. Students are required to buy their own lunch on full day excursions).Evening activities on campus include karaoke, discos, quizzes, various competitions such as table tennis, pool etc., participation in Judo and Karate etc.

 

BREAKAGES DEPOSIT

Students are required to pay a refundable deposit of £50.00 per person on arrival. This is to cover things such as their room key, meal card etc, and any damage that ma y occur whilst they are at the college. This deposit is fully refunded at the end of the course subject to the return of any college property (such as room key) in good condition and a satisfactory room inspection.

 

HEALTHCARE

There are regular surgeries held by the college nurse/matron at the College. When necessary, appointments are arranged at the local Doctor’s surgery. Taxi fares to and from the Doctor’s surgery are NOT included. Students are covered by the British National Health Service whilst in our care but private medical insurance is still recommended.  Please note that dental treatment can be expensive in the UK.  Only minor treatments can be paid for by using the student deposit account.

 

POCKET MONEY

We recommend that students bring a small amount of pocket money with them to pay for drinks, snacks and any souvenirs they may wish to buy. As a general rule, £80.00 per week is sufficient. For students travelling on their own, their pocket  money should be given to our staff  for safekeeping. Our staff will then distribute pocket money as required twice a week.

Students will be able to exchange currency into Pounds Sterling if necessary. Groups of students will be taken into town where they will be able to exchange their currency at a local bank or travel agency. We do, however, recommend that student's pocket money is given to them in small denominational Sterling notes before leaving their Country.
