Our Junior Students:

Photo of Summer English Courses for Juniors in Cork, IrelandOur summer students come from all over the world, but they have this in common: They want to learn the language, live the life, and love the leisure here in the scenic setting of an English-speaking country.

Our students make great progress in their English language skills, particularly listening and speaking.

Our courses are professionally designed and our teachers are qualified and experienced experts. Our students build great confidence in using English.

Thanks to the hands-on, relaxed approach of our teachers here in Schull, students' progress isn't limited to just the classroom setting. Each student's age, needs & learning styles are catered for.

We offer a level assessment and interview on the first day and then you will join the right class with other students of your level. 

We believe expert tuition in small groups, combined with an exciting leisure program that stimulates the mind and body, sets the tone for a successful and pleasurable learning experience.

Young Kids' English Summer Camp
Designed for children ages 3-8, this camp allows your child to make new friends, while learning & playing through the English language.

English Courses for Families
Because our English summer camps for young kids and juniors are located only a few minutes walk from our Adult English school, Mum & Dad are always nearby.

We synchronise timetables so parents, younger kids and also their older siblings can attend one of our 3 separate, but closeby centres.

This allows them to easily enjoy a unique ‘whole family’ learning experience, but with the needs of each family member attended to, according to their age and level.

Year-Round English Courses for Children & Teenagers:
Closed group or 'one to one'  or 'two to one' Junior courses are available at any time throughout the year. In addition, we provide Junior English courses at Easter or other weeks by special arrangement.

Quality English Teachers:
All our teachers are qualified to a very high standard. Because we are also a teacher training centre, our own teaching methods are always being upgraded and reassessed in order to ensure our programmes are effective and successful for our students.

We know that younger learners hate being bored not just in their free time, but in the classroom too.

Leisure Activities:

As there is wonderful green countryside and hills around us, we can go horse-riding, play tennis, golf, go cycling, hiking and have picnics and barbecues on top of Mount Gabriel. 

Additional Activities
We also offer jewellery making, stone engraving, paper making and art lessons and workshops.


- Homestay Program with a local Irish family
Total immersion experience in the English language by staying with a family in the local area. We always try to place our students in families with children and teenagers of their own age whenever possible.

Students can also choose to stay in Bed & Breakfast accommodation or in a local hotel.
