Summer School (5-16yrs)

Data | Goals of the Summer School | Programme Information

Registration for this year's Summer School is now closed.

In July, we run a very popular English Language Summer School for children and teens aged 5 to 16. Every day the children receive a combination of language lessons and activities in English.

The activities differ each year and may include art, sport, IT and drama or dance. We aim to develop their English language skills and give them the opportunity to make new friends in an international environment.

Children can attend one week or both weeks of the Summer School and we provide an early drop-off and late pickup service, starting at 08:00 in the morning and ending at 16:30 in the afternoon.

We welcome many returning students every year and we look forward to having them join us again this Summer!
