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 receive a certificate in celebration of their hard work on the course.

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.

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!
