This exclusive course is designed for boys and girls aged 8-12 (Juniors) and 13-16 (Seniors). For English lessons, students are divided into Juniors and Seniors which ensures that they receive the correct level of English tuition for their age and ability. In keeping with the ‘boarding school taster’ experience and our wish to develop independence, teamwork and leadership skills in our students, all meals, lessons and activities are taken together. Sports, excursions and evening entertainment are also combined allowing students to spend time with new friends.
Students live in single-sex boarding houses under the care of an experienced Houseparent who acts in loco parentis and is responsible for the development and welfare of each student. All International Summer School staff are employed directly by Sedbergh School which helps students to settle quickly and to help them achieve their full potential during their stay.
The course is small and friendly, and the village location offers a stunning and very safe location for an exciting summer. Each day is structured to give a true taste of boarding school life. With 22 hours of English lessons each week and student numbers restricted to 20% of any one language, opportunities are maximised to improve English language skills very quickly. Class sizes are small and a variety of teaching styles is used, including group language activities to ensure that students are engaged and learning effectively.
All students experience history first-hand during excursions to some of Europe’s oldest cultural centres and enjoy thrilling outdoor activities in beautiful British countryside. Through practical projects, educational trips and an exciting range of extra-curricular activities, students gain valuable skills, make lifelong friends and take away unforgettable memories.
Our younger students are offered a lot of variety and support throughout their lessons. They build up their vocabulary through the different weekly themes which excite them and stimulate their interest in the British culture, something which they cannot get out of a textbook.
Once a week, junior students learn English in the Community. This is where they go outside of the classroom to practise their English in a practical environment.
Older students are offered a stimulating environment in which to learn. The large amount of contact hours with their teacher means they are able to maximise the benefits a total immersion in English has.
Through the active communication lessons they are able to learn English in a fast-paced and fun way. Here they practice skills such as debating and story writing whilst hearing different accents and experiencing different teaching styles.
