For a better future
Welcome to your summer school in London. Our aim is to provide students with a stimulating and safe environment to learn English and make friends by speaking English to students from other countries.
Regent's Park is located in the centre London. A short walk from Baker Street tube into Regent's Park takes you to Regent's University where the school is located for 8 weeks of the summer. We have a tennis and multisport court on site and playing fields surround the campus for football other sports. The school's excellent location means fresh air and space whilst being close to all the major attractions in London.
At the North end of Regent's Park, near Camden is Gloucester Gate open from 3rd July to 26th August. This houses our 5 to 9 year olds for 6 weeks and then all ages 5 to 17 until 26th August.
- English classes in the mornings
- A hot lunch in the on-site canteen
- Sports in Regent's Park in the afternoon
- 2 visits to London attractions per week
- 1 full-day Saturday trip
There is plenty of time spent in the park, with two afternoons of sports and activities. Students learn English whilst playing games. All kids like to win. Playing fairly is an important lesson too! 10-17 year olds have three excursions per week, two in London and one outside London. This is an important part of the programme. The excursions are integrated with the English lessons as part of our Discover programme. 5-9 year olds have 1 half-day excursions per week and can join the Saturday trip with a parent.
For children aged 10 years or more travelling alone we arrange homestay accommodation through two agencies registered with the British Council. We also have limited availability of homestay accommodation for parents with children. Families who wish to look for apartment or hotel accommodation should contact us. Homestays are up to 45 minutes away, with a limited selection close to the school.
Parents, children and hosts are provided with 24-hour contact telephone numbers for the accommodation agencies and the schools. The school has a dedicated staff member to assist you or your child with any problems or questions regarding accommodation.
Children are asked regularly during their stay about their accommodation, the food and their happiness with the arrangements. All their feedback is read and followed up if necessary and feedback on hosts is recorded and monitored.
Outside the school timetable, students stay with their host. The host will include the student in their normal routines which usually includes shopping trips. Additional excursions can be organised in advance by arrangement.
