Group Courses During Academic Year

English Today enjoys having its own boarding and classroom facilities within the campus of Culford School.  Consequently, we are able to offer year-round courses to foreign schools, for them to send us groups of their students, accompanied by some of their teachers, during their school academic year.  Many national governments encourage such course visits and help to fund them.  Our own teachers care for the students from breakfast time until sometime after supper, allowing the accompanying national teachers to relax or go sight-seeing, shopping etc.  In the later evening, the national teachers take control and sleep under the same roof.

In addition to year groups, we are able to offer Summer School facilities, to a much larger number of students, when we occupy much of the boarding facilities of the main Culford School.  Of necessity, Summer School courses are run a little differently from Academic Year Groups, as explained below.

Whilst each day is different and can very from course to course, a typical day for both types of course is shown here.

Tailored

Academic year courses can be tailored to suit the requirements of the visiting school group.  Whilst we have a typical programme for a 2 week course, around which we plan our activities, we always liaise with each group’s lead teacher, before arrival, to confirm the standards and special requirements of the group.  If required, some courses can be reduced to one week.

Summer School is offered to all nationalities; the more variety, the better.  Some students arrive in groups organised by their schools, or by national agents, or by groups of parents clubbing together.  But many students are individually booked by their parents acting on their own.  We are able to accommodate a few group leaders, but our own staff maintain close care and responsibility for the students 24 hours per day.  Consequently, summer students are assessed in their abilities on arrival and organised into appropriate classes, of mixed nationalities, tailored to their abilities.

Booking

Booking should be made directly with the Director, John Endean or on +44 (0)1284 38 5516.
