English Country Schools:
English Country Schools organises residential English language summer courses in the UK for children and teenagers ages 7 - 17 from around the world. Our English summer schools are held in well-equipped boarding schools in the countryside in Dorset and Oxfordshire, about two hours from London. All of our courses are accredited by The British Council. With over 20 years experience in successfully running our English summer schools, we combine English language teaching with a balanced programme of sports, social activites and excursions so that young people enjoy fun friendship and learning all day long.
We offer professional, accredited summer courses during which children and teenagers learn a lot of English. They have fun, make new international friendships, broaden their horizons and increase their self-confidence. We run separate courses for three different age groups: 7-10, 11-14 and 14-17. This enables us to match levels of care and content to the age, interests and ability of our students.
Our students come from over 25 different countries from around the world. We don’t allow groups from any one country. All students eat, sleep and receive lessons in the schools. There are comfortable recreation areas for relaxation with experienced staff to provide constant supervision and support.
English Language Classes:
At Port Regis there are 3 x 1 hour English lessons each weekday morning for 7-14 year olds. At Sibford there are 2 x 45-minute English lessons for the 14-17 year olds followed by a 90-minute educational workshop. Students are placed in English classes according to their age and ability to a maximum of 16 per group. Parents receive weekly online progress reports from their child’s teacher and a more general reports from activity staff and house parents at the end of the course.
At English Country Schools, professionally qualified teachers use effective modern techniques to create interesting, enjoyable English lessons. Teachers also help with the activity programme: this helps to establish a friendly rapport with students and ensures that the learning of English continues well beyond the classroom.
Our schools are situated in some of England’s finest countryside. They provide a safe, healthy location for a wide variety of supervised sports and activities, with many historic and cultural attractions in the locality.

"Our daughter called us after two days in E C S and asked if she may come back next year for a month! She came back home more self confident, with improved English and with many new friendships with students from very different countries."
- Mother of Ivana, age 11, from Slovenia
"Our children loved the atmosphere and came back with a great deal of self confidence and learned to talk with more vocabulary.... learning by doing... they had to speak with their friends from abroad."
- Parents of Mariana (age 10) and Isabel (age 13) from Germany
"Our daughter enjoyed her stay very much, and matured visibly during the course! Her self confidence increased a lot, both in English and socially."
- Mother of Elisabeth, age 12, from Norway
"Being the second time my kids attended Port Regis Summer School, I have to emphasize the significant development in English, social contacts and independence on daily issues and tasks. I do believe that ECS gave them the opportunity to grow personally and to develop important skills for their future. I can only say good things about the staff of ECS, as well as, the installations and comfort I felt as a parent during the period the kids stayed with them. They will for sure come back in the future."
- Father of Matilde (13) and Madalena (14) from Portugal
