*Earlscliffe fee includes return transfers to/from London Heathrow and London Gatwick for flights/trains scheduled to arrive/depart between 9am-3pm on published arrival and departure day.
For other locations, we provide all our students with the option of using our Shared Transfer Service from/to London Heathrow Airport and St. Pancras International. The fees are:
|SBC at Canford||£130.00||£250.00|
|SBC at Eton College||£85.00||£160.00|
|Earlscliffe||Included in fees*||Included in fees*|
When a student arrives, an SBC staff member wearing a bright yellow t-shirt will be waiting to greet her/him and accompany them to our Welcome Club. At our Airport Welcome Club, she/he will have the chance to meet other students arriving, have some light refreshments and relax. After a little rest, students will be accompanied by students and SBC staff to board the coach and be taken directly to the school in a private coach.
The Shared Transfer Service can be used by students using the following flight and train times:
Flight lands on arrival day: 06:00-17:00
Flight take-off time on departure day: 08:00-18:00
The times outlined above also apply to students arriving and departing from Kings Cross St. Pancras train station.
If you book a flight outside of these times or to/from another UK airport, we can look at sending a staff member in a taxi to collect or drop off your child, but it will cost more than the Shared Transfer Service. Quotes are available upon request.
If you book a train or flight outside of these times or from another London airport, please contact your Admissions Manager for a private taxi quote. Please note this will cost more than our Shared Transfer Service from Heathrow, Kings Cross St. Pancras (& Gatwick for Earlscliffe students)
Flights must be booked on the arrival and departure dates so that all students can arrive and depart the course at the correct times.
Although the Breaking Digital course is designed to stretch students’ abilities, our tutors are trained and supported by our academic staff in modifying the level of challenge if necessary. At SBC we are experienced in providing an inclusive learning environment and do all we can to help students.
To study in Breaking Digital, you must have a level of B1 or higher, else you may find the input of the course too challenging.
Everyone who completes the programme receives a certificate of completion at our graduation ceremony at the end of the programme.
SBC handouts are given to students, all of which were created by our own in-house team.
Our very own academic team has produced a selection of SBC handouts, which are distributed to students throughout the programme.
To take part in class students require their own pens. Notebooks and folders are provided.
It is not necessary to complete any required reading before Breaking Digital starts, however it is always recommended to students to continue improving their English if it helps them to feel more at ease.
I consider SBC to be an absolutely fascinating opportunity for kids not only to improve their English skills, but also to get knowledge in new professional spheres that will definitely help them to understand their future career aspirations better
