Wrekin College is situated in the small and typically English market town of Wellington in the county of Shropshire, approximately 5 miles from the centre of Telford.

Telford, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, is one of the UK's fastest growing and most successful new towns.

OISE's philosophy of total language immersion plays an important role, meaning the whole learning experience is structured to teach relevant vocabulary and expressions, and to provide constant opportunities for students to reinforce what is studied by applying it to natural, real-world situations, both in the classroom and outside of it.

 

COURSE - THE EXTENDED SUMMER SCHOOL CURRICULUM

An Extended summer curriculum in a choice of summer schools across England. The Extended curriculum goes beyond language knowledge, confidence and fluency and explores a wide range of academic subjects such as History, Geography, Natural Sciences and Literature. Students explore areas of interpersonal skills and inter-cultural awareness as well as developing a learning autonomy.

 

THE PROGRAMME

The Extended curriculum goes beyond the traditional summer curriculum; as well as improving their English, students can expect to widen their subject knowledge in areas such History, Geography, Law and Science.

English Language lesson

These lessons cover the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing and include controlled practice in language structures and lexis development to achieve a good command of grammar structures and vocabulary.

Life Skills and Learning Strategies Each lesson is linked thematically to the English lesson which precedes it. The lessons cover areas such as study skills, time-management and being self confident.

Project lesson

The projects encourage autonomous learning, teamwork and completion of a task (such as a presentation, a video, a newspaper) and cover areas such as journalism, theatre skills and debates.

Subject lesson

Students study a subject such as Geography, Natural Science, Politics, Cultural Awareness, British History.

Measuring progress

Each student keeps a Learner Portfolio to encourage learning skills, self-assessment and reflection. Individual coaching sessions allow students to monitor and improve their performance.

The timetable includes real-time practice examinations and coaching in language and examination skills.
