Summer Schools in England, Wales and Scotland

To learn English very individually [ˌɪndɪˈvɪʤuəlɪ]

The Oxford English Dictionary comprises 600,000 words. For Future Perfect only one word counts: YOU. For us, it is a prerequisite that the stay at a summer school will be an unforgettable experience.

What makes a summer school in England, Wales or Scotland so special? On the one hand there is the first-class classroom setting for EAL students, on the other hand, summer school students profit from the extensive range of sports and leisure facilities at British independent schools. 

These facilities are used to provide for a varied free-time programme and enriched by trips and other fun activities. English is the connecting language between students from all over the world and everyone wants to connect which motivates the young learners enormously.
As many of the selected summer school offers integrate native- and non-native speakers, learning progress is fast, ensuring that the English acquired is natural and authentic.

Things to Know About Summer Schools in England, Wales and Scotland:

How do we find the right summer school for our child?

Summer schools have various focus areas, they vary in length, age groups and curriculum. As there are many different summer schools, it is best to discuss the offers in detail in person. The best thing about them is that they are all so much fun – in fact it makes many parents wish they were kids again!

General framework

In a one-to-one chat we’ll get to know your child and his/her interests. This can take place in our offices in Vorarlberg, at your home or via video-call. Together we can set the scene and clarify the following points:

  • Where would you like to go? England, Wales or Scotland, to the sea or the countryside?
  • What are the main objectives of your trip/stay?
  • How many hours of English classes should your child have each day? Lessons in the morning and/or additional courses?
  • Which hobbies does your child have? Are they interested/active in a particular sport and would like to get extra practice or does he/she want to try out new sports? This is important as not all boarding schools offer the possibility of horse riding or water sports for example.
Choice of summer school
As soon as we have a detailed picture of what the ideal summer school for your child should look like, we choose options for you and check availability. After that you can decide on your favourite. If you like, we can draw up a shortlist together and discuss the different offers. We will also assist you with the actual booking and travel preparations. Finally, we will remain your contact person before and during your child’s stay abroad.
Costs of summer schools
The costs of a summer school in England, Wales and Scotland consist of language courses and free-time activities and include full board. A week is between 1,000 and 1,500 GBP. There are additional expenses for travel and pocket money. The total costs for a two-week summer school programme will be between € 2,500 and € 3,500.
