What are our junior courses?
Open to students between the ages of 9-12, our junior courses offer a taste of British boarding school experience and the ultimate summer adventure. Through residential living, interactive learning sessions and exciting extracurricular activities and day trips, our courses are designed to help students flourish in their academia, as well as help them to build on a range of soft skills such as creativity, confidence, communication and so many more!
With courses running at a week long, students can choose to extend their stay with us by exploring more than one subject or one location – it’s just one of the ways we can help to provide the summer of a lifetime.
What are the highlights of our junior courses?
Discover the very best British boarding school experience
During their stay, students will reside in one of two prestigious boarding schools, either Wycombe Abbey or Cheltenham Ladies’ College.
A unique summer opportunity, students will stay in boarding rooms that are used during the term time. While they will have their own space to relax in, all teaching and meals will be within the grounds, fostering a familial environment where students are encouraged to mix with classmates and new friends.
Gaining an authentic taste of boarding school life, students will also combine class time with a range of extracurricular activities on-site – such as swimming and other sports sessions – to give them a rounded experience.
Designed to prepare students to excel in their future studies, our highly trained teaching staff aim to inspire students through interactive learning sessions. Using a mix of multimedia presentations, problem-solving tasks, group and project work, our immersive teaching style helps students to rapidly develop their subject knowledge, as well as many other essential soft skills such as debating, communication and confidence.
As already mentioned, students will be staying in either Wycombe Abbey or Cheltenham Ladies’ College.
Wycombe Abbey, nestled in the beautiful town of High Wycombe is surrounded by 170 acres of magnificent grounds that are safe, protected, and offer a realm of tranquillity. Students will get to use modern state-of-the-art facilities that include a range of teaching spaces, a 25-metre indoor pool and sports pitches. The perfect location for a summer filled with fun, excitement and adventure.
Another fitting location for a summer adventure, Cheltenham Ladies’ College is set in the heart of the Cotswolds and boasts stunning ivy-covered grounds. Recently refurbished, the campus now features a swimming pool and a new sports centre, modern accommodation, teaching spaces and a private library.
