Intensive English Summer Language Course - Sherborne International

Intensive English Summer Language Course, plus subjects

Our Intensive English Summer Language Course, the first of its kind aimed at international students, has been running in the UK for over 25 years.

It is aimed at international students aged 8-17 who:

  • Wish to improve the fluency and accuracy of their spoken and written English
  • Are considering joining a British independent school and wish to improve their English in this context, including exposure to some more academic language through the subject lessons
  • Are already at a UK school but want to enhance their English language skills
  • Want to sample independent school life and culture in England while socialising with students from different nationalities
  • Want to acclimatise themselves or receive a boost by enrolling on Sherborne Summer prior to starting at a UK school in September

With English plus the addition of several lessons in different subjects – such as sciences, maths, history, geography, cultural studies, art, drama and computing – this intensive course gives a taste of our academic year programme.

The variety of content and language is much appreciated by the students. They enjoy the interactive and dynamic lessons whilst developing their English throughout.

Key points about this Intensive English Summer Language Course

  • Very small class sizes (5 – 8 students)
  • 30 lessons a week
  • Optional additional individual tuition available
  • Full programme of sports, afternoon and evening activities
  • Two excursions a week (including study trips on alternate Wednesdays for those staying more than two weeks)

Students can enrol for 2, 3, 4, 6 or 8 weeks. If students intend to join a UK boarding school, we recommend a minimum of four weeks to gain the best benefit from this preparation. We run classes to the end of August, which are ideal for those about to start their new school in September.
