Welcome to the Summer School at St Edmund's College

We welcome international students to our Summer School each July and August. We are based in an impressive historic campus just 35 miles away from London. Our academic programme involves 20 hours of tuition per week, including 12 hours of English language teaching. We offer a wide range of academic, artistic and vocational activities and a comprehensive excursion programme. Please read our brochure to find out more.

We are taking bookings now for the St Edmund's College Summer School 2018!

2017 was a fantastic (and fantastically busy) year. We were completely full, so the School was constantly active, with pupils from over 38 nationalities learning, making friends, playing sports, doing art, playing music, going on excursions and making memories. 2018's going to be similar!

Last year we also had our British Council inspection. These happen every 4 years to assess and evaluate the quality of the Summer School. Our results were very positive. We scored 13 out of 15 'areas of strength', which is one of the highest scores in the country. We are proud to be one of the best Summer Schools in the UK.

In 2018 there will be a few differences: our optional courses (such as SCUBA diving and Horse Riding) are all free - there are no 'extras' to pay for at all. We will have 4 age groups instead of 3 (Juniors: 10-11, Middles: 12-13, Seniors: 14-15, 16 Plus: 16-17), more academic classes, but the same winning formula that keeps so many children coming back year after year.

We look forward to welcoming you to the St Edmund's College Summer School!
