Appropriate for: students looking for a holiday-style course in the summer who want to have fun outside the classroom as well as in it
Our 70 acre (28 hectare) campus in central England is ideal for holiday courses as it has everything a student needs in one of the safest locations in the country. All students receive over 16 hours per week of general English tuition from qualified EFL course teachers. Leisure and social activities are prepared and supervised by our dedicated social and sports staff, with a wide variety available on-campus.
The exciting and varied vacation course programme ensures students have something to do from when they wake up until they go to bed.
It is our intention to provide every student attending our holiday courses with everything essential to their stay on-campus in one package price. We take care of students from the moment of arrival to the moment of departure. Some additional options are available which do cost extra, such as room upgrades, private lessons and alternative excursions.
