Academic Summer Courses
Preparing international students for studying in British Boarding Schools since 2002
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 their other main academic subjects. In addition to the academic studies, we also focus on the personal development of each student’s ‘soft skills’ such as confidence, team work, leadership, communication, creativity and integration.
Residential Summer Courses
We have three residential courses for international students coming to study at a British boarding school:
Our Pre-A-Level / Pre-IB Course is for students aged 15-17 who are preparing to study A-Levels or the International Baccalaureate.
Our Pre-GCSE Course is for students aged 13-15 who are preparing to study GCSEs.
Our Junior Academic Course is for younger students aged 10-12, combining hard work with lots of active learning and fun.
For students coming to the UK to start at a British boarding school in September, an Etherton Education academic summer course will prepare them well. After the summer school course, our students leave feeling more confident and ready to study at their new school. For students just coming to experience UK education and life at a boarding school, they will leave not only with an improved academic level and new study skills, but also an invaluable life experience to take home with them.
