Summer SchoolAbout St Edmund's
An industry-leading UK Summer School.
Why choose St Edmund’s?
St Edmund’s College was founded over 450 years ago, in 1568, our historic campus is set in over 400 acres of beautiful countryside. We provide a safe, stimulating, and fun environment for young people to have a summer to remember.
We have a long-established tradition of welcoming students from all over the world to our summer schools. Although we have 25 years of experience delivering summer programmes, our 2024 school has been refined to be a market leader in the language travel industry.
A Truly International Summer School
Here at St Edmund’s, we welcome all of our students as individuals and do not take on large mono-nationality groups. We promise not to sell more than 20% of our capacity to students with the same first language. In 2023 we welcomed students from over 30 different nations.
High Quality, Unique Bespoke options
We are so excited to launch our Young Pilots Summer School, our Content Creators Summer School and our British Education taster Summer School this year! As with all of our existing specialist courses, these will always be delivered in small groups by trained, qualified professionals.
All of our students will stay on site with one other student that speaks a different first language. Our boarding corridors are used throughout the year and maintained to a high quality to give all of our students a home away from home.
Each two week course will have at least five excursions, all included in the cost of the course. From cities to theme parks, the zoo to the Great British seaside, we have increased the number of included off sites visits for everyone.
24 Hour Medical Centre
We have an onsite medical centre that is staffed 24 hours a day by trained professionals. Our school nurses will ensure any minor illnesses are monitored and treated, as well as administer any first aid that is needed in the case of an accident. If anything, more serious happens, they will know exactly when to take a student to a main hospital.
British Council Accredited
St Edmund’s College Summer School is accredited by the British Council and we are a member of the English UK Group. Our English language courses were awarded 13 areas of strength in our last full inspection.
The accreditation scheme is the hallmark of quality for academic, social and welfare elements of a language travel course and ensure quality throughout your child’s stay.
Online Photo Portal
We employ a full-time photographer for Summer School that will capture lessons, activities and excursions. All of these photos will be available to view on a password protected portal within 24 hours.
This will let agents, parents and guardians view all of the fun that their child is having with us at St Edmund’s.
