International Summer School
Our International Summer School is divided into two Age Ranges
The Junior families are usually close to the School or a very short bus route to it. We make sure the walk back is easy or the host family may even collect you. If not, and you come with a larger group, the Group Leader or Activity leader will ensure you are home safely.
All of our Courses and Excursions are therefore “age appropriate!” We have made a special effort to ensure that the afternoon activities are suited to the age range we are taking them on. Additionally, our Activity Leaders are trained and take special care of all of the students, especially ensuring that the Junior kids are supervised and live near to the meeting points.
Our courses offers a great mix of English language tuition plus fun and exciting activities, cultural and recreational excursions. Our English language courses are tailored to give confidence in speaking and listening and keeping students engaged. At our English summer schools we make sure you have English lessons according to your ability and won’t be left behind or bored.
All courses on both the Junior and Senior Programmes, include 4 hours of lessons a day; 2 full-day excursions a week; afternoon activities; full-board accommodation; bus passes and an Activity Leader to look after you. Senior Students also get a weekly Disco.

Our 2019 Summer school starts on June 23rd and we have a rolling intake every Sunday until we close on the 10th August. Our school is in Shoreham-By-Sea. It’s a pretty town on the South Coast just outside the City of Brighton. Shoreham town offers shops, cafes, restaurants, and lots of recreational space; it is a very safe area. There is an excellent bus service into Brighton and Worthing (every 10 minutes) and train links into London, Portsmouth, Arundel and all the excursions we plan are very easily accessed. We offer very good quality host family accommodation and we always try to place students as near to the school as possible. English lessons are focused mainly on conversation, listening, pronunciation and gaining confidence in speaking, there is a small amount of grammar but in general we make lessons interesting and fun.
