Breakfast and dinner are included in the course fees, but lunch is included only for students under 16.
All meals offer a vegetarian option (which must be booked in advance). We are not always able to provide special Kosher or Halal food as a dining option; students with these dietary requirements will sometimes be offered the vegetarian option, so you must let us know in advance what foods you cannot eat.
All medical dietary requirements such as lactose intolerance and any food allergies must be reported to us at least 60 days in advance of your course start date so that we can ensure you receive the correct meals.
You should bring enough money with you to cover the cost of any snacks, drinks or souvenirs you may wish to purchase. Prices vary depending on where you shop, so it's a good idea to plan your budget in advance. If you plan on doing a lot of shopping, you may need to budget slightly more.
Our transfer service gives parents and students peace of mind when they arrive in the UK or USA for their course.
We are pleased to be able to offer an airport transfer service to the majority of our 2023 students, covering particular airports and campuses. Please see below for information and prices.
Journeys made as part of the Transfer Service in 2023 will be delivered using a variety of modes of transport. The mode of transport could be one of:
a. Private (individual) taxi journey
b. Shared taxi journey
The mode of transport utilised for each student’s transfer will be determined closer to the summer school, and will be based on factors including the number of students who have booked transfers who are arriving on the same flight, or arriving at the same airport/terminal at the same time, and studying in the same location. It is not possible to request a specific mode of transport.
Our staff will be present at all terminals of London Heathrow airport (LHR) on the following dates and at the following times:
Sunday 2nd July, 0700-1600 BST
Sunday 16th July, 0700-1600 BST
Sunday 30th July, 0700-1600 BST
Transport will depart LHR regularly throughout the hours given above. The mode of transport is flexible.
If students would like or need to be met by a member of the staff, they must book a flight that lands no earlier than 0600 BST and no later than 1500 BST (allowing for 1hr for students to transit through customs and collect their bags). Our system will only allow transfer bookings for flights arriving between the hours of 0600 and 1500 BST – if you would like to book a transfer for a flight landing outside of these hours, please see the section
Arrivals and Departures Outside of Supervision Hours below.
Prices include transport to campus, welcome on arrival, transport booked for you by our head office team, dedicated transfers line to call if any queries, information emails in advance, monitoring of flight delays/diversions and auto-adjustment of transport, supervision at the airport and connection with your transport, water and snack on arrival, and more.

On departure days, all students must have left their campus by 1200 BST. In line with the above times, and to minimise the amount of time spent waiting at the airport, we would encourage all departing students to book morning or afternoon departure flights where possible, and to avoid late evening and night flights.
For any flights departing early in the morning, which will necessitate early transport departure from campus, our team will be able to arrange a wake up call and a packed breakfast.
Prices include transport to the airport from campus, wake up call, departure assistance and information, transport booked for you by our head office team, dedicated transfers line to call if any queries, information emails in advance, monitoring of flight delays and auto-adjustment of transport, supervision at the airport, assistance with check in (where required), and more.
