99% Customer support satisfaction

Our expert admissions team are dedicated to getting it right for every family. From the moment you enquire you’ll be assigned a designated admissions expert who will guide you through the process of booking onto one our summer courses. But it doesn’t stop there.

They will be your main point of contact throughout your journey with us providing support and updates as your child completes the course, keeping you in the loop every step of the way.

My two kids had the time of their lives. They loved their teachers and learned a lot – not just English, but about other cultures, due to the large diversity in their friends’ backgrounds. And they thoroughly enjoyed their activities in the afternoons. They told us that they didn’t really miss us – which I take as a great sign.
