After an inspiring and engaging morning of sessions led by our fully qualified primary trained teachers, afternoons are then spent participating in specialist sports classes, junior adventure activities, educational and leisure trips or sometimes winding down with a swim in our on site pool or a walk in the countryside with members of our highly experienced staff!

International children mix with native British children to enable the best opportunities to use and improve their English, in particular their vocabulary and accent.

The summer school prides itself on being tailored to the exact needs of young children, trips and excursions will always be age appropriate, shopping sessions will be matched to the age of the child – we understand that the shopping requests of a 5 year old are often very different to a 15 year old! Meals, snacks and evening supper are all focused on the dietary needs of young children.

Now offering an Optional Day Trip to London!
For just £99, children travel in comfort by high-speed train to the capital city where they view many of the sites and scenes of London. Traveling by open-top bus they will be able to take many photos. They will walk around Trafalgar Square before walking up The Mall to Buckingham Palace, stopping on the way for a picnic lunch in St James’ Park.

The train leaves from King’s Cross - the station featured in the Harry Potter saga - and children will be able to see the famous platform where he catches the train to Hogwarts! A fabulous day out and one not to be missed!
