When the long Summer holidays are ahead, why not give your child an experience of a lifetime at a UK Summer School?
Summer programmes run from June to August and offer international students aged 8-18 years a unique immersive learning and cultural experience. From English language tuition to Global Leadership programmes, professional sports coaching and mini MBAs, Panoba will ensure we find the perfect course for your child.
Additionally students will have the chance to experience all the fun of life in an English country boarding school alongside an exciting array of activities and excursions. All this, within acres of safe, beautiful countryside, with outstanding facilities and caring and supportive environments.
Students can choose from 2-4 week programmes, all of which include accommodation, meals, activities and excursions, evening entertainments and 24/7 supervision.
English Language Courses
Students are completely immersed in English throughout their time on their course. Their level of English is assessed through testing before or upon arrival, so that their programme can be tailored to suit their individual needs.
Students have between 15 and 23 hours of English lessons per week, with their progress regularly monitored. The aim is to help students to become more confident and more fluent when communicating in English, and to be motivated to continue to work on their English long after they have left Summer School.
All teachers are UK qualified and have a great deal of experience in teaching international teenagers. Classes are taught in small groups so that the teacher can give students individual attention.
A full sports, social and cultural programme with local excursions runs alongside the academic tuition.
A detailed report is produced for parents at the end of the programme.
