We understand that preparing for a 9-year-old to join a summer school can be both an exciting and nervous time for children and parents. With our extensive experience, you can trust us to deliver a truly rewarding experience for you and your child. Our dedicated team of staff is available 24-hours a day to assist with any needs that a student might have during their stay with us. Your child will grow in confidence, have fun with students from all over the world, and develop their English language skills in a multi-national and secure setting.
At SBC, the welfare of the children we care for is the most important thing. We are proud that our expertise has been recognised through our British Council inspection. SBC is the only summer school to have achieved 15/15 ‘Areas of Strength’ in the criteria, including Care of Students and Safeguarding Under 18s. This comprehensive inspection certifies that your child is studying at the UK’s Top-Ranked Multi-Campus Summer School (As ranked by EL Gazette, 2019 – 2023). Students can choose between an exciting range of residential summer school and day camp options.
Most students studying with us enrol on our General English course. This course is suitable for all levels from Beginner (A1) to Advanced (C1) speakers. For students who have an Upper Intermediate (B2) or Advanced (C1) level of English, we also offer Academic Discovery. This course gives students the opportunity to further develop their English language skills through studying a wide range of subjects including Geography, History, and Science.
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.
