Summer School Courses
Our UK summer school is for international students aged 8 to 17. Now in their 26th year, the summer courses are intensive and academic, but as well as working hard, students have lots of fun with an extensive choice of sports, activities and excursions.
“I love it here – it’s really fun!”

With very small class sizes (5 – 8 students per class) and an overall staff-student ratio of one member of staff to three students, parents can relax knowing their children are safe, happy, learning effectively and well looked after in a caring, family environment.
Located in the town of Sherborne, surrounded by beautiful English countryside, our summer school courses in the UK for international students are based on the same high-quality standards as our school term courses. Written academic and house reports are sent to parents every two weeks and all students receive a certificate of attendance.
