At our summer centres in Southampton and Reading, we follow the British tradition of grouping students into ‘houses’ (just like in Harry Potter). On arrival, we’ll place you into one of four houses. Each house has a name and a colour. Students in the same house support each other and take part in activities together. This creates a sense of community and helps you to make friends from around the world.
Develop your Skills
Our activities are fun and many are also designed to develop your soft skills. Here are some examples.
At our creative IT workshop, you’ll use your teamworking, technical and artistic skills to create an online video; and then your presentation skills as you share it with the class.
At our performing arts workshops, you’ll be led by specialist Activity Leaders who will help you improve your performance skills, oral expresssion and body language.
At sports sessions we reinforce the values of teamwork and fair play and most are led by specialist Activity Leaders who will help you develop your skills.
With all of this conducted in English and in a stimulating international environment, you’ll notice an improvement in your confidence and ability to communicate, and will learn more about other cultures (please note, however, that at our Year-Round Centres we cannot guarantee an international mix). Your activities programme will depend on your centre and on the programme you have chosen. For some activities we also separate students by age. To see the activities on offer in your centre, please check the centre timetable.
