For a better future
Summer Explorer focuses on developing core English language skills through project-based learning activities and interactive learning – an effective way to learn language quickly and successfully. We encourage students to become more confident, independent learners while they develop 21st century life skills that will benefit their future learning, life and work.
Established in 1875, The Leys School is one of the most prestigious private schools in Cambridge, with many of their students progressing to world-class universities.
It is located in the heart of the city, close to the Fitzwilliam Museum and several of the University of Cambridge colleges, and has extensive grounds with contemporary residential accommodation, outstanding sports facilities and a modern teaching block.
However long you will be studying with us, we hope that The Leys will inspire students to aim high as they learn the English language and develop essential skills for learning, life and work.

The activity programme is an integral part of the course and allows students to practise what they have learnt and develop a natural, fluent use of the language. Our afternoon activities – electives and Academy options – are designed to improve communication and confidence while developing academic, creative and active skills. All Summer Explorer students will also enjoy a wide variety of whole-school activities, such as games, competitions, discos and shows.
We want to make sure your child has everything they need to maximise their potential for success at our school. Boys and girls have separate accommodation blocks on site, each with a dedicated houseparent to ensure 24/7 supervision and care throughout their time here.
Accommodation blocks are separate for boys and girls. At The Leys, there are single, twin and dormitory rooms available, including beds, wardrobe, chest of drawers and chairs. Where possible, we mix nationalities in bedrooms, so students are encouraged to practise their English and learn more about another culture.
Access to bathrooms are also separate for boys and girls, as well as for junior and senior courses. There are shared showers and toilet facilities, which are situated at strategic points throughout the accommodation.
Bedrooms and bathrooms are cleaned regularly, with fresh bed linen provided weekly. Students are responsible for making sure their room is tidy and will have regular room inspections. There is a free laundry service for machine washable clothes once a week.
Students are offered a choice of nutritious food at each mealtime; breakfast, lunch and dinner. Every menu includes a selection of hot and cold items including fresh fruit and vegetables. Packed lunches are provided on study tours.
Snacks are available during break times and at each evening house meeting. If your child has a dietary requirement associated to an allergy, please let us know so we can accommodate this.
There is no better way to learn about British life and culture than to experience it for yourself. Study tours also play an important role in our learning approach. Students prepare for their study tour in class and have educational tasks to complete during their trip, this is then discussed in lessons afterwards. They will have three-full day study tours to UK destinations, every two weeks. Students will also have the opportunity to add optional activities to enhance their experience.
To the highest standard, our care for your child starts from the moment they land in the UK. Our dedicated Young Learners team will oversee the coordination, liaison and supervision of your child on arrival and departure days.
Of course, you may want to travel with your child and bring them directly to the school. We can also arrange for this with the school.
Airport or station transfers are included in your course package fee, from designated airports and within scheduled arrival and departure times (depending on student travel requirements).
To guarantee your airport transfer, please submit our online travel form for each student at least 10 working days before the course start date. If you would like to make any changes to your departure date, please let us know at least 7 working days before your departure date.
