“We are so excited to have received such recognition from the British Council. Highlighting a maximum 15 strengths confirms Summer Boarding Courses as the first, and only, multi-centre summer school provider to have outstanding quality in every area of inspection.

“This achievement recognises 10 years of hard work and the outstanding quality of our summer school operation. We are extremely proud of our team and pass enormous thanks on to everyone involved in our courses – the excellent Activity Leaders, College Mentors, House Parents, Tutors, Managers and Head Office Team all should take credit for this achievement. We look forward to welcoming returning and new students to our 2019 summer schools to experience the SBC difference.”
