If you want to experience the history and daily life of British royals for yourself, then there is no better place than Windsor. Throughout their stay, students will have several scheduled visits, where they will be able to visit this tranquil riverside city.

Eton College provides a fantastic range of facilities across campus and throughout the picturesque town of Eton. The facilities include:

  • Jafar Hall – purpose-built lecture hall and debating theatre
  • Sports Hall

  • All-weather pitches

Academic approach

At SBC, we go above and beyond the curriculum because we think that learning comes from doing, and we challenge our students to use and demonstrate new abilities in a friendly and encouraging setting.

By combining the university-style learning format of lectures and workshops, students have the chance to engage with theoretical principles as well as develop the soft skills required outside of the classroom. We put theory into practice by facilitating new opportunities to inherit key skills such as critical thinking, leadership, communication and teamwork – mirroring what is practised every day in a professional work setting.

Each student is actively encouraged to take the initiative, think critically, and cooperate with others to solve problems in the classroom under the direction of our amazing teachers.

time to shine


Every week when the entire school gathers, each student is given the motivating challenge of participating in a group presentation called Time to Shine.

At SBC, we don’t quantify achievement through grades and exams but provide students with a group challenge in which they can research a topic, find solutions to real problems and get to showcase their findings to a real audience in a nurturing and encouraging environment. Time to Shine projects provide students with an opportunity to step out of their comfort zones by providing students with the chance to practise their public speaking skills in front of a larger audience. Students receive recognition and applause from their peers, which helps build confidence in tackling even greater challenges ahead.

Eton College Programme Highlights



At SBC at Eton College, students can fully immerse themselves in a wide range of fun activities. We aim to facilitate the physical and mental well-being of our all our students by providing a host of activities that allow students to explore their passions and interests beyond the classroom.

Our social programme enables new friendships to be made naturally and with ease. Participating in a multi-activity programme provides the perfect setting for a multinational learning community to thrive. Students can choose from participating in high-energy mainstream sports such as football, basketball, swimming and volleyball based at Eton College’s recently redeveloped Sports and Aquatics Centre. There are also more relaxing activities on offer such as baking, arts & crafts, drama and music workshops.

The college’s proximity to Eton and Windsor provides our students with the opportunity to spend some of their free time exploring the local area in small groups. In addition, during their time with SBC at Eton College, students will take part in several whole school events such as tournaments, debating, a talent show and a disco. This helps develop key team working and communication skills whilst, most importantly, having fun!

Confirmed activities for this year include an exciting opportunity for students to celebrate their final day with us at Dorney Lake which hosted the rowing events in the London 2012 Olympic Games. The event starts with a Bell Boating session followed by a BBQ. Students will then celebrate their summer surrounded by new friends with a disco. 


During a two-week course, students will go on three fantastic excursions to famous UK cities and popular tourist destinations, providing the opportunity to see some of the UK’s most famous attractions and landmarks.

To ensure our students make the most of their trip, our dedicated team of staff accompany the students and provide a full itinerary for the day.

During their stay, all students will visit London at least once, where they will enjoy a walking tour of historic landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, Downing Street and Trafalgar Square as well as free time in Covent Garden. To broaden our students’ cultural horizons even further our programme frequently includes visits to other famous locations including one of the most famous university cities in the world – Oxford.

All students will be given an SBC Gold Card which they must carry with them when offsite. Gold Cards have details of the emergency number to call in the event of a student becoming separated from their group.

SBC at Eton College Summer School FAQs


If I had to describe my experience with SBC, I would immediately say fantastic. I was able to learn a lot of things about a field that I would not learn in school (because I take medicine) and I was able to learn a lot of new cultures and I was able to make friends with a lot of people from different countries that make me a richer person both intellectually and as myself.
