Every year at about this time the Concorde offices start getting flooded with enquiries and bookings for places on our world-famous summer schools for juniors. These summer courses are aimed at young people aged 8 – 18 and offer an amazing opportunity to study English in England over the summer while making new friends from around the world and exploring some of England’s most beautiful cities.
We used to boast that our junior courses were a once-in-a-lifetime study opportunity, but in fact so many of our students come back to us year after year that we can’t really say that these days…but we must be doing something right as our students love to spread the word about how much fun they have and we regularly get bookings from the friends and families of previous summer school visitors!
We’re partnered with English UK Young Learners for our summer schools programmes which gives assurance of quality and academic achievement. Juniors can choose from a selection of some of England’s most beautiful historic cities and stay in residential, campus-style accommodation for a taste of UK university life, or with one of our homestay families for the ultimate “English in England” experience.
As well as a comprehensive set of academic and project work (we’re centres for both Trinity College London and the Cambridge International Examinations) we offer an unrivalled activity programme with regular escorted excursions to popular destinations around the area of each centre. We take care of all transport and even airport transfers – and in fact some of our residential courses start midweek which keeps stress down for parents as well as avoiding the hassles of booking a weekend flight.
