Programme 13 15 top





This programme is aimed at our students aged 13 to 15 (inclusive). It combines engaging morning or afternoon English classes with various workshops, which encourages learning through art, reading, singing and exploring new things every day. Classes are conducted in a formal or semi-formal atmosphere (4 hours daily), and are then followed by active water and other sports in late afternoon (4 hours daily). Groups consist of up to 10 students per teacher, with around 7 children per tutor.

Courses run for 3 weeks in August 2024. The minimum course duration for children is 1 week.

If you are travelling as part of a group (10 students or more) and would like additional tuition in specific subjects (A-Level, IB Pre-Diploma Programme) please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

In the morning students receive two hours of English tuition. On the first Monday  of the course each student will need to complete an English proficiency test as well as a semi-formal interview with a native speaker, after which they will be placed in a group with students with similar language skills. 

Our exciting interactive programme caters for all levels of ability and assists students in becoming proficient in the English language while immersing them in an English-speaking environment. Many international friendships find their roots at our Summer School. As well as mixing and mingling with English-speaking friends, this course allows students to improve their language skills in an informal and very engaging classroom environment.

Classes focus on diverse linguistic skills, such as reading, writing, listening and speaking.



In the afternoon students attend a 1.5-hour workshop of their choice, which they sign up for at the time of making their application. Students can choose a different workshop for each week of attendance, or attend the same workshop for the duration of their study if they prefer.

 Programme 13 15 middle 1


Academic English extends the morning English classes by further focusing on academic performance. Students work on a range of skills such as critical thinking, academic writing, debating, British history and literature, as well as efficient internet research - all of which are indispensable for developing not only their English language skills but also their understanding of British culture. This workshop is ideal for those interested in languages, history and literature, who would like to study one of these subjects at a higher level.


Enterprise workshop is aimed at students willing to immerse themselves into a world of commerce. It includes areas such as micro/macroeconomics, business, entrepreneurship, maths, analytics and globalisation. Students will work on a range of projects such as how to build and cultivate a successful business from scratch, what qualities you need to posses and work on, how to avoid common mistakes and analyse business and economics environment and so on. This workshop is ideal for those who possess analytical skills and would want to study science, economics or maths at a higher level.


Film Academy workshop focuses on movie making as well as photography. The curriculum is designed for people with little or no experience in making movies or using an advanced camera. In one short week, students are instructed in the basics of writing, directing, camera and digital editing. You can choose from digital filmmaking, producing, screenwriting, broadcast journalism or editing so that a workshop group can write, shoot and edit one short (typically about 15 minutes) movie in 1 week. Students use digital cameras, portable Lowel lighting packages, and digital editing software. Classrooms are equipped with a television, Mac computers and video cameras for demonstration, editing and screening of clips. The workshop was designed to serve the needs of different types of students, yet through hands-on classes and exercises, all students gain an understanding of the requirements and rigours of filmmaking, as well as experience the exhilaration of seeing a completed project.


3D Modelling/ Printing/ Development. At our Summer School we’re really concerned with educating students about the new technology of 3D printing and how to use it. Which is why we have run workshops for children as young as 13 years old. Some of the things you might expect to do during workshop is to design and 3D print your own boat, space ship, robot, jewellery, or anything you want. For 2 week courses you might choose to develop your model even further by adding Arduino curcuit boards and motorised parts to it to see it in action. Learn out all about 3D printing and cool things you can do with it.


Programme 13 15 middle 2


Arts & Drama workshop places the emphasis on cooperation, concentration, movement and story development in a non-competitive environment. By exploring the art and music of characters from familiar stories and creating those of their own, participants will develop physical, social, and artistic skills through theatre games, creative movement, improvisation and pantomime. The workshop also includes painting, decoration and illustration. This week-long workshop wraps up with a performance on the final day.  Students build on their language skills, confidence and creative expression, while having fun with a wide variety of themes that inspire their imaginations and spur them on to new learning.


A wide range of innovative teaching techniques and supplementary materials, including high end computer and video equipment, music, literature, diaries and magazine articles as well as out-of-classroom projects keep classes fun and ensure that students stay motivated.

All classes and workshops are taught by highly qualified professional teachers of EFL and the IB.  You can find some of their profiles here.
