Classes for junior students will have a maximum of 15 students, but you can expect an average of 13 students per class.

Class times are divided so that students receive lessons from more than one teacher, two per day allowing

The welfare of our students is of paramount importance to us and we offer a high standard of care and supervision to all our students. The school provides nominated staff members to act as guardians to their individual students that travel without group leaders. It is very important  that students remain happy and healthy throughout their stay.  The Management,  along with the teachers and the activity leaders will ensure that all students receive the best possible care and attention so as to maximize their experience during their study holiday.

 

ACTIVITIES AND EXCURSIONS

A residential evening activity programme rounds off each day and includes: discos, Irish nights (Ceili), karaoke, talent nights
and treasure hunts to name but a few, ensuring that each student is busy from breakfast to bedtime. Please ask us for  the sample programme for details.
