Etherton Education – 2022 Residential Summer Course April Review

2022 Residential Summer Course Release

22 April 2022

We are very sad to announce that we have decided to cancel all of our residential academic summer courses which were planned for Lord Wandsworth College and Queen’s College, Taunton in 2022.

This is very disappointing: we really hoped that 2022 would be better than the last two years. In the UK, the vaccination programme has been very successful and as a result, the Government has lifted all restrictions, and life is getting back to normal.

However, in other parts of the world, especially in Asia, there are still very strict rules on quarantine and travel is very restricted and expensive. The disastrous war in Europe has affected us all. As a result, very few families have been interested in sending their children to UK summer schools. We have reviewed our enrolments regularly, but today we have decided that we will not be able to run a full residential summer programme.

Although we could have kept enrolments open for another month or two, we have decided to make this announcement early, so that students can be clear about the situation and can make their travel plans and visa applications in good time. We apologise sincerely to any students, families and agents who have been inconvenienced by this decision.


We are hopeful we will be able to return to our residential courses here in the UK for the summer of 2023. If you would like to be the first to know about our residential 2023 academic summer courses, please get in touch and we will make sure your details are on file ready. The contact information for our admissions team is shown at the bottom of this page.


We understand that despite the situation, some international students will still be coming to start at British boarding schools in September, and many others around the world are interested in British education. As a result, we will be running our online summer courses to help give students a great introduction to British boarding schools. Please take a look at our online summer courses page HERE.  You can also download our 2022 online summer course documents as follows:

Thank you again for everyone who has enquired, registered and kept hopeful with us for the summer – we cannot thank you enough. We appreciate and value the support of our educational agent network, our students and their families, as well as our partner schools. We will be in touch soon.


Stay safe and take care.
