Our English Language summer schools provide an academic and cultural experience, set in premier British boarding schools and Oxford University colleges, for students who wish to study English in the UK.
Our study programmes are varied to suit all abilities, from beginner level to advanced, and to suit different ages. For younger years (8-16) Our professionally-qualified EFL teachers run General English courses as well as Summer Study; focusing on subjects such as English Literature, History and Geography. We also offer specific subject tuition for students at our Dukes International Summer School in International Relations and Business.
For older teens, aged 15-17, our English courses are held in the historic and beautiful colleges of Oxford University. These courses develop English language skills, and academic knowledge in specific subjects, including: Business and Leadership, Law, Medicine, Philosophy and International Relations. As well as developing academic skills, the courses also helps students to prepare for life at university.
All our English courses are residential. During their stay at our summer schools, students enjoy a varied, fun and cultural activity programme, including excursions to world-famous cities including London, Oxford and Cambridge, helping them build strong international friendships over the summer.
Unlike other Summer Schools, Summer Boarding Courses have staff on hand during all social activities and break from the English course, to encourage English-speaking between the students both in and out of the classroom.
Summer camps with Summer Boarding Courses are unique due to our diversity. Children from over 100 countries attended our courses last year. This makes for a truly international and immersive environment, where English is spoken not only in lessons, but also during all our fun, social activities.
We are British Council accredited, with a strong emphasis on the welfare of our students, from children who have never been away from home, to older students who are more accustomed to the summer school experience.
