Ultimate English: English Explorers (Day Camps)

Our Day Camps offer an enriching English learning experience that blends English learning with adventures. Each week, students take part in two 50-minute lessons a day with their teacher. These classes are either in the morning or the afternoon.

Students are grouped based on their English level, from beginners to advanced learners. A highlight is the small class size, capped at 12 students. This often results in even smaller groups, with a variety of nationalities. This structure enables our teachers to tailor each lesson according to the students’ needs.
Following their English lessons, students can immerse themselves in the activity programme. Here, they get the opportunity to engage with local English-speaking children, enhancing real-world language application.

Course Highlights

Each week, students delve into intriguing themes from the under-the-sea exploration to solving mysteries. This ensures that learning is not only educational but also exciting. Our communicative approach to language learning revolves around games and group activities, which will help our students become confident English speakers with a love for learning.

Activity Programme

Every week, children will enjoy an exciting and unrivalled programme of activities. With over 40 different activities on offer, the programme has something for everyone, from art and creative sessions, to sport and adventure. Children join groups with local British children, who are of a similar age.

Examples include: Archery (8 years +), Basketball, Cookery, Drama, Football, Fencing (6 years +), Pedal Karts (6 years +), Kwik Cricket, Netball, Roller Racers, Swimming, Trampolining, Tennis, Outdoor Art, Ultimate Inflatables, Pop Art Masterclass, Zorbing (8 years +), Mini Olympics and so much more!

FAQs about Summer Camps


Did you know?

All our residential courses can be offered without overnight accommodation, i.e. ‘non-residential’. This means that you can choose to drop-off and collect your child each day of the course, rather than sleeping at the school. This is ideal for those that wish to stay with their children overnight, or for those that live locally. The programme for non-residential students starts at approximately 08:30 and includes lessons and activities, with the children finishing after the evening activity around 20:00.

Your child will still benefit from the same fantastic academic and social opportunities that our summer courses have to offer!
