Summer Schools Information
Arrivals and Departures:
A Key Educational Travel Representative will meet Airport and Dock arrivals on request. Transfers for groups and individuals can be arranged at time of booking.
Programme and Course:
A Course Plan will be sent to the Group Leader or individual one-month prior to arrival. Should a late booking be accepted, the programme will be presented on the day of arrival.
Each Course has a Course Director / Leisure Time Teacher who will arrange a varied programme of sports. These include Swimming, Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Tennis and a wider variety of other sports depending on the facilities available at each centre. Other afternoon activities include Treasure Hunts, Competitions and Local Visits. Evening activities often include Talent Contests, Fancy Dress, Video Evenings and International Evenings. Discos are arranged once a week.
Excursions take place on one full day and one half day per week. The destination is dependent on the location of the centre. All excursions are fully supervised by our staff and students will be issued with an identification card bearing telephone numbers and addresses in case they become lost. Additional activities and excursions can be arranged with payment made during the course.
Residential students will be accommodated at the centre in double, triple or multi-bedded rooms. Some of our centres have dormitory accommodation, but are divided into cubicles. This enables the student to share in a community experience while still offering a degree of privacy. Boys and girls are separated each having their own showers and bathroom facilities.
Homestay students are placed with carefully selected families but have access to all residential facilities during the course.
All students will take a placement test so that the student can be placed in the appropriate study group. The maximum number of students in a class is 15.
The English Language tuition consists of twenty lessons per week. The emphasis of the lessons is on developing oral skills and students will be encouraged to participate in debates and role-playing. A wide variety of teaching material will be provided and used to extend and reinforce vocabulary and grammar. All students will be assessed and presented with a certificate at the end of the course.
Supporting our Course Director will be an experienced team of teachers and sports staff who will ensure not only the student's enjoyment and academic progress but attend to welfare needs and safety. A Key Educational Travel inspector will visit each centre during the course to ensure the smooth running of the course.
Every effort is made to ensure a wide variety of popular meals. We strive to supply a good balance between British and international dishes.
A continental breakfast is usually served with the opportunity to sample a cooked breakfast. Fresh fruit and vegetables are always available to ensure a balanced diet.
Tuck shops are available and may vary from centre to centre. Packed lunches are supplied on full day excursions.
