The Junior Academic Course is designed to prepare international students aged 10-12 years who are coming to join a UK boarding school. It is also suitable for young students who want to have a taste of real boarding school life, and who want something more than just an ordinary holiday course.
The recommended minimum English Level is CEFR B1 / IELTS 4.0.
Lessons are 90 minutes each. Teachers give students a short break during the middle of each lesson. All students take a fixed timetable, which consists of the following subjects: English, Drama, Life Skills, Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Geography, Art & Boarding Preparation.
Students have one 90-minute English class every day which will include academic English, social English for everyday use, grammar revision and pronunciation. Students will study the background for their trips and write about their experiences. Students are expected to read at least one book a week from the library.
The Pre-A-Level / Pre-IB Course is designed to prepare international students aged 15-17 years who are coming to join a UK boarding school to start A-Levels or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. It is also suitable for students who want to have a taste of studying in a real British boarding school, and who want something more than just an ordinary holiday course.
Students choose at least three subjects in addition to English and Drama. They may take four or five subjects if the timetable allows it.
For these subjects, students will have three hours of classes a week: Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Geography, Business/Economics and Art and Design.
For these subjects there is a 90-minute workshop once a week: Psychology, Further Maths, Theory of Knowledge and Boarding Preparation.
All our subjects are taught by subject specialists who focus on teaching the technical vocabulary needed to study each subject. The science teachers understand the importance of lab work so there is a lot of time spent on practical, hands-on experiments.
