Our Buddy Programme offers international students a fantastic opportunity to experience life in a British state school, attending regular classes (such as Science, History or Maths) alongside a ‘Buddy’ with whom they share the school day: classes, lunch and break times, sports afternoons and any extra-curricular activities.

  • Fully integrated programme in English state school
  • Each student has a Buddy to show them around and introduce them to friends
  • Excellent cultural opportunity for high school children aged 11 – 14
  • Students stay with our specially selected homestay
  • Hot lunch with their Buddy
  • Full-day and half-day excursions each week with Canterbury Study Centre
  • Minimum English level of pre-intermediate (CEFR B1+)

The Buddy Schools

Concorde International has excellent relationships with a number of specially selected state secondary schools throughout Canterbury.
Each school is experienced in welcoming our international students and we work closely with them throughout their stay.
The English ‘Buddy’ will be specially selected by the school staff from among a group of motivated pupils who have chosen to be part of the Buddy Programme. Students and buddies are paired (one-to-one) for the first two weeks and introduce students to their friends, often resulting in friendships that last well beyond the flight home.
This programme includes cultural activities and excursions led by Concorde International staff in addition to the time spent at the school.
