Year-round English language courses for school groups
Concorde International provides specialist English programmes for school groups throughout the academic year from September to June.
Our courses are designed to suit your academic requirements following your own school syllabus (including PON), preparation for Cambridge PET, FCE, CAE and CPE Examinations, Trinity GESE examinations and General English for communication.
We combine your academic requirements with a cultural experience by organising different activities and excursions around the UK. This encourages students to practise their English in real life situations and boosts students’ language confidence.
Previous topics studied include Technology, Tourism, British culture and Traditions, Media Studies and Current Affairs. We also provide courses with a vocational focus with local company visits. Areas of study could include Catering, Construction, IT and the Media.
We have a wide range of programmes for you to choose from but we can also design a unique course for you.
Your students will take home some fantastic memories of their time in the UK and we guarantee that one week with Concorde will make a difference to your students' performance and confidence!

In addition to the summer programme, we welcome school groups to our Canterbury Study Centre throughout the academic year.
With the year-round study courses we offer a truly personalised, tailor-made service. With our assistance you can design your programme to suit your requirements and help your students make the most of their new and exciting learning experience.
Courses can be designed to complement your school curriculum. We offer exam preparation courses and a variety of stimulating academic programmes on themes such as British Culture, the Environment and Tourism. In addition to the EFL classes, a programme of activities, visits and excursions can be included to give your students the best possible experience during their stay. Courses can be for a few days or up to six weeks.
Most students stay with host families who live within walking distance of the school. Some students will need to travel to and from school by bus. Students will have breakfast and dinner at home and are provided with a packed lunch. Our hosts welcome students throughout the year and are experienced with children and students of all ages.
It is possible to include a number of excursions to famous locations, such as London, Cambridge, Brighton, Canterbury and Oxford.
It is also important to experience the local attractions and cultural history in your chosen location, so when making your booking please ask us for some suggestions and prices or ask for a copy of our optional excursions handbook.
We are a registered Trinity GESE centre and welcome groups who want to study for, and take, the Trinity examination with us.
We welcome PON Groups from July to October and are happy to work with you to put together a specific programme of study, activities and excursions. We also offer residential courses for PON groups. Please enquire about dates and availability.
