As you are no doubt aware, there was a terrorist incident in London last weekend. While London continues to be a very safe city on the whole, the inevitable increase in security measures surrounding many London landmarks and attractions over the coming weeks and months is such that we are not able to guarantee that our planned trips to London will be either viable or enjoyable.
For this reason, we have decided to cancel our excursions to London this year and replace them with alternatives in other locations. Please rest assured that the quality of the excursions will not suffer, and that your child/children will still experience a first-rate educational programme. The number of trips that the children go on will not change, and every other aspect of the Summer School will remain the same. The trips we already have planned to locales outside London will remain as they are.
The Summer School was established in 1996 and is currently one of the top British Council accredited summer schools in the UK.*
In our British Council inspection in August 2013 we were awarded 14 out of a possible 15 areas of excellence. To view our Accreditation Report, please click here.

St Edmund's College is England's oldest Catholic school and has a long established reputation for welcoming and educating international students. The summer school is an integral part of the College and promotes high standards of personal achievement, conduct and community spirit. These summer courses are an ideal preparation for transition to the main school or to another British school.
The educational experience provided on the summer school facilitates enrichment of the whole child. The course offers new learning opportunities through exciting projects, theatre visits, educational visits, option courses and activities all designed to challenge and extend personal development and language competence. Native speakers and bilingual students are welcome.
In 2016 we celebrated our 20th anniversary with students from 40 different countries. To mark this special occasion we gave each child a gift of a free Trinity ISE examination. We are very happy to report that the results were excellent, with the vast majority achieving a Pass, Merit or Distinction.
