aldenham summer school

Aldenham School is just north west of London and is a traditional independent school in the quiet countryside. Over 400 years ago Queen Elizabeth I herself gave permission for the school to be built. The school mixes tradition with modern facilities and provides the benefits of a countryside campus with easy access to central London, which is less than an hour away on public transport. All the school’s facilities are in a compact, closed campus, so the accommodation, dining room, classrooms and sports facilities are all a short walk from each other.

London Experience

The London Experience programme offers students the perfect opportunity to experience all that London has to offer; museums, sights, galleries and culture! The programme includes two afternoon visits into central London per week during which our staff take them sightseeing or to visit important attractions. The programme also gives students a flight on the famous London Eye to experience the wonderful views of the historic city centre.

Course Overview

Our summer English courses are designed to give students the opportunity to practice their English in a friendly, multicultural environment. Students are actively encouraged to practice their English with students from other nationalities, both in class and outside. We concentrate on raising their confidence and fluency, and bringing out the English they already know, but can’t yet use.

About our courses:

  • Five levels from Elementary to Advanced
  • All students are tested on arrival to grade their spoken and written English to place them in the class of the correct level
  • 15 hours of teaching per week from qualified teachers including project work to allow them to use their English creatively and learn more about British culture and history
  • A certificate on completion of their course

Excursions

Half day excursions may include: London Science Museum, London Eye, London Aquarium, London Dungeon, Chelsea Football Stadium, Victoria Albert Museum, St Albans.

Full day excursions may include: Oxford, Warwick Castle, Cambridge, Windsor Castle

Optional excursions may include: Thorpe Park, London Zoo, Brighton, Madame Tussauds
