English Course

Summer School

English Lessons

We have developed a unique syllabus, which combines morning English Skills lessons with afternoon English in Action lessons

Students receive 23 hours of English lessons per week. Our aim is to help them to become more confident and fluent when communicating in English, and to be motivated to continue to work on their English long after they have left Whitgift Summer School.
We use a variety of approaches to teaching and learning and our aim is to help students communicate in English as a global language. Above all, students exceed their language learning goals and expectations, regardless of when they joined the course or the length of their stay.

Students must have studied English for at least two years and have an Elementary level of English in order to participate on our course. Students are placed in classes by age and capability to make sure that they are in a group most suited to their level of English. 

The maximum class size in general English classes is 12 (classes are often smaller), which enables teachers to give students individual attention. Teaching is carried out with creativity, innovation, passion and enthusiasm. We offer a bespoke approach to learning and every student within each level is challenged and supported.

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.
