The Etherton Pre-A-Level/Pre-IB course is based at the beautiful campus of Lord Wandsworth College, one of the UK’s premier boarding schools. The location is very convenient: it is less than one hour away from the city of London or from London’s Heathrow Airport.
The environment around the school is very good: there are trees and green fields all around the school. The school owns 1200 acres of land, including a farm. The air is clear and without pollution, and when the weather is good, you can see the stars at night. It is a lovely and very safe and secure location for our summer school students.
Although the school is almost 100 years old, it has excellent modern facilities. Boys and girls live in comfortable boarding houses. Our lessons take place in a new teaching building called the Prideaux Centre – a light airy space providing the perfect setting in which to improve your English language skills. Science lessons take place in well-equipped laboratories. All meals are provided by the School’s own catering staff in the dining room. Our social events take place in their Music and Drama Centre or the very large Gavin Hall.
Lord Wandsworth College is also famous for sport, and we will have the use of their excellent sporting facilities which include an indoor swimming pool, ten tennis courts, squash courts, grass playing fields, and two Astroturf pitches. There are also two indoor sport centres fully equipped to play a number of sports including football, basketball, netball, badminton and volleyball.
