A student following an Academic Year Course studies 23 hours a week and stays for 30 weeks or longer.

Any student prepared to invest so much of his or her time studying usually has a long term aim or goal. This generally involves taking one of the many exams that the school prepares its students for. The most frequently taken exams are: Cambridge First Certificate, Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English and the Cambridge IELTS examination.

All long stay students are carefully monitored by the academic staff to ensure every aspect of their stay is to their satisfaction. Regular tutorials with your teachers are important as is the availability of student counselling with the school's Director of Studies where any concerns that a student has about his or her course can be raised and dealt with. Study habits are very personal but bad habits will make your progress slow. A one-to-one student counselling meeting can help you identify problems with your approaches to learning and your motivation for learning. This can have a big impact on how you learn and how you enjoy learning. This personal attention ensures that every student receives the maximum academic benefit from their stay with us. You can take OUR FREE ONLINE ENTRANCE TEST if you want to check your present English level.

Please note: IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 AND BOOKING ON AN ADULT COURSE, you will be unsupervised outside your lesson times. Outside of these lessons, for example, during the 30 minute morning coffee break and 60 minute lunch break, you will not be supervised and will have free time in the afternoons after lessons, in the evenings and at weekends. A member of staff will check with you each day what your plans are for your free time, and you will also have a meeting once a week with our Welfare Officer to check that all is OK with your stay. You will be given a brightly-coloured wristband to wear with an emergency telephone number on it. A SIGNED PARENTAL CONSENT FORM must be submitted for an under 18 student attending an adult course.

We do provide information and support for the students on staying safe in their free time, and a wide range of afternoon and evening activities and day trips at weekend are organized by the school – students need to book and pay for these individually. There are full day excursions organized at the weekends, and students can book and pay for these during the week. It is also possible by arrangement for you to join some of the activities of our teenager school which runs in parallel (again on a pay-as-you-go basis).

Please Note:
