Set between the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales, Sedbergh International Summer School provides pupils with the perfect opportunity to fully immerse themselves in an English and activities-based programme with other children from across the world. Pupils will experience the best of British boarding, joining the Sedbergh School family and making lifelong friends from around the globe.
The programme provides 15 hours of formal English lessons each week, with pupils
placed onto the Junior (Ages 8-12) or Senior course (Ages 13-17). Teaching staff are experienced, enthusiastic native speakers, dedicated to providing pupils with engaging, fun and interesting lessons. Staff use the latest pedagogical methods, multimedia tools and resources to help pupils develop their language skills and the 1:15 teacher-pupil ratio ensures pupils benefit from their teacher’s dedicated time and attention.
Sedbergh School values the importance of community engagement. As a junior you will have the opportunity to visit the surrounding towns and villages to complete class projects. Regular conversation with the local British people will help to develop your spoken English.
Senior pupils are encouraged to develop their independent learning and research skills. Staff guide older pupils through a combination of individual and group based projects, many of which require engagement with the local and wider community.
Sedbergh International Summer School is delighted to introduce its new ‘academies’ for 2022. Designed to enhance their learning further, pupils will have the opportunity to tailor their summer school experience to reflect their own specific needs. Taking place every afternoon and run by a dedicated team of specialist staff, each academy will run for a period of one week. Pupils are encouraged to participate in a different academy each week in order to gain a more rounded experience.
