Course Description

The English Through Academic Subjects programme at Summer Boarding College at Eton College is designed with 12-to 16-year-olds in mind.  The programs consist of four tracks, each with the goal to improve English proficiency through learning subject material.  

The weekly program consists of 20 hours of tuition per week in their chosen subject.  Each week ends with a Time to Shine presentation that allows students the chance to demonstrate their learning and develop their presentation skills. Presentations take place in Jafar Hall, Eton College’s famous debating chamber.  Classes have a maximum of 15 students each.

The business program at Eton College helps young students prepare for leadership roles and understand the latest business trends. Subjects include budgeting and finance, sustainability and growth, and marketing, as well as the development of the English proficiency that is necessary in business in the 21st century. The Time to Shine project allows students to work in groups to develop a startup business plan and pitch to a panel of judges.
