Easter Courses

Our intensive Easter courses are perfect for students preparing for GCSE or IGCSE exams or looking to improve their English language skills.

The courses are based on the same high quality standards as our year-round schooling and features very small class sizes with a maximum of eight students per class.

Each study day includes lessons from 9.10am – 3.30pm, followed by an afternoon sports and activities programme. There is then exam practice followed by relaxing recreational activities in the evening.

Our teachers are experienced in teaching students who do not have English as a first language and can offer appropriate linguistic help. However, our Easter courses are also ideal for native English speakers looking for a concentrated boost just before their exams.

Written academic reports are sent to parents with details about the work covered, progress made, achievement, areas to focus on for further improvement and general involvement in the course. On completion of the course, students receive a certificate of attendance.

It gave me a lot of techniques to help me with my revision.

All our courses are professionally staffed and organised for students who want to learn in a caring, friendly atmosphere. Parents can relax knowing that their children are safe and receiving the best attention.

We understand that your decision to entrust your child to our care is a really important one and one you need to get right, so we are always ready to hear from you with any questions or concerns you may have. Of course, if you are able to visit us in advance, you will be assured of a warm welcome.
