English and Activity Day Camps

Our English Day Camps for international students aged 4 – 14 take place at some of the UK’s best independent schools.  The summer camps are delivered in partnership with Ultimate Activity Camps and combine an action-packed activity programme with English tuition.

English Lessons

Each week, students will have 10 lessons that are 50 minutes long, either in the morning or afternoon, with a qualified EFL teacher. Students are split into different ability levels, ranging from elementary to advanced. Classes have a maximum of 12 students and are often even smaller groups with a diversity of nationalities. Teachers are prepared to adapt every class to the needs of their students, including having different tasks to meet the range of abilities within a class.  After they’ve finished their class students will return to the activity programme alongside the local English speaking children.

Upon completion of the programme, students go home with a certificate, their completed workbooks and a written report summarising their improvements, strengths, and any recommendations for further study.

Activity Programme

Every Week children will enjoy an exciting and unrivaled programme of activities with something for everyone from art and creative sessions, to sport and adventure.  Children join groups with local English children, who are a similar age. We offer over 40 different activities on offer.

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!
