Welcome to Etherton Education

Etherton Education academic summer courses are designed to prepare international students for studying in British boarding schools.  Our summer boarding courses are also suitable for students who just want a ‘taste’ of British Education’.

Our courses are academic, with English for Education as the main focus.  Students study intensive English and up to ten other academic subjects.  In addition to the academic studies, we also focus on the personal development of students ‘soft skills’ such as confidence, team work, leadership, communication, creativity and integration.  The courses also include lots of sport, social activities, Sunday clubs and cultural visits.  Students live in an international summer school environment.  They will work hard but have a lot of fun!
