ramsgate host family summer school

Churchill House School in Ramsgate is located in a quiet residential area less than 10 minutes’ walk from the town centre. The school is in an attractive nineteenth century square overlooking public tennis courts and the harbour. The main buildings date from 1814 and although they have been modernised they still retain their charm. Classes and activities will take place across the square in one of our school buildings with spacious, modern classrooms. Close to the classes is our Clubroom, with a range of facilities including a self-service restaurant, pool table and in the evenings it is one of the venues for our disco and karaoke nights.

Homestay by the Beach

Most of our families in Ramsgate host our students all year round and so are used to welcoming new students into their homes. Students are fully immersed into the family environment, eating with the family seven days a week, attending school based evening activities 4 nights a week and staying with their homestay family on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. This allows them to get to know the family better and gives them the opportunity to improve their conversation skills in a natural environment. Most of our accommodation is within a 20-minute walk (or a short bus ride) from the school and at the end of evening activities, our staff walk junior students home.

Course Overview

Students are tested before arrival by our online testing system and classed with students of similar ability. Students learn in classes with a maximum of 15 students, but an average of 13. Throughout the week, students receive 15 hours of tuition where they explore areas such as vocabulary, sentence structure, listening, speaking and much more!


All of our students are encouraged to activate their spoken English, not only through classes, but also through the activity programme and excursions. Each student visits fun and educational places on one half day and one full day trip a week, which allows them to interact with other British people and use their English.


Half day excursions may include: Canterbury, Dover Castle, Broadstairs

Full day excursions may include: London, Oxford, Cambridge, Leeds Castle

Optional excursions may include: London Eye, Thorpe Park, Brighton, London Dungeon, Chelsea Football Stadium, Madame Tussauds
