We’ve designed the Summer Language School at Stonyhurst for international students who wish to improve their English language competence, experience life at a traditional English boarding school, gain valuable life skills and increase their confidence and independence.

We offer two-week residential courses which can be combined to create a three or four-week course.

We deliver 46 hours of high quality English language teaching over two weeks, by qualified teachers and students are required to do 45 minutes of supervised homework on 3 evenings per week. There are also regular classroom tutorials to monitor both students’ academic progress and personal welfare. Afternoons are devoted to putting students’ learning into practice through project-based lessons and a fun programme of recreational activities and sports.

We guarantee small classes, of up to 12 students, to offer students greater individual attention and a more focused learning experience.

Last year, 95% of the students said that their overall stay was excellent and 100% believed that their English had improved.

Prices start from £2320.00 for a 2 week course with discounts available for siblings and 4 week bookings.
