The Louis Albrecht and Connie Townsend Scholarship Programme

Summer Boarding Courses operate education and activity programmes for thousands of students every year and last year we welcomed 103 different nationalities to our summer schools and colleges. Here at SBC we pride ourselves on providing a truly international experience where students can develop their confidence, self-esteem and communication skills in a supportive and friendly environment.

We believe that every child should have the chance to succeed. Through our scholarships we aim to support young people to develop key skills and fulfil their potential, whilst helping them experience the joy of living and learning.

Our English language programmes are taught by qualified and experienced teachers and are designed to help you express, communicate and develop your English no matter what your current level. A summer with SBC is a truly unique and life changing experience which will help you develop both socially and academically and give you a solid foundation for your future studies.

In 2016, Suman joined our Scholarship programme.
