English Lessons

The English language is at the centre of all lessons and activities at Whitgift Summer School. Our students are completely immersed in English throughout the day and evening.

Our students' level of English is assessed through an online test before they arrive, so we can tailor the English course to their individual needs.

Here at Whitgift, we have developed two unique courses; General English Skills and English Exam Skills. Both of these courses combine English language lessons with using English in our carefully-balanced English in Action lessons. Students have a total of 23 hours of English lessons per week, progress-monitored regularly. Students from both courses study together for two hours of each morning and then study separately for the next hour. They come together again for English in Action classes in the afternoon. Our aim is to help students to become more confident and more fluent when communicating in English, and to be motivated to continue to work on their English long after they have left Whitgift Summer School.

All our teachers boast a great deal of experience in teaching international teenagers and a number of the teachers are year-round Whitgift School staff.

The maximum tutor group size is 12 (often even smaller), so the teacher can give students individual attention.

A detailed academic report is produced at the end of each week which is emailed to parents.

When booking a place, students should select whether they want to take part in the General English Skills course or the English Exam Skills course. There is more information about these courses in the links on the left-hand side of the page.
