Full-board accommodation at our school in Cambridge is offered either in the on-site residence or university residence located within a 5-10 minute walk of the college.

Our school in Cambridge offers a high level of supervision for students whilst they are at the school, or on taking part in the activities programme. Students will also be supervised in their accommodation, as many of the school’s staff also live in the residences. There is usually a ratio of 10 students to every staff member. There is not a great deal of free time on this programme, as most of your time will be spent either in your English lessons, or taking part in activities. Students are permitted to go out in the evening, but must return by 23.00.
The school offers a fantastic range of activities, and there is usually at least one activity per day (usually these take place in the evenings). Examples of activities include an orientation tour of the city, sports such as badminton and football, punting on the River Cam, a circus workshop, arts and crafts workshops and karaoke parties. The school also arranges one full-day excursion to theme parks, Brighton, London, as well as historical sites such as Leeds and Warwick Castles.
This course is suitable for students aged 14-17 years wishing to take a more intensive course with a high level of supervision.
