Values and Vision

The summer school at St Edmund’s College seeks to provide the best possible experience for the 150 or so pupils who attend every year. In-class learning is only a small part of the typical student experience, with a wide range of trips and excursions also taking place. These activities are tailored for each student, depending of their level of spoken English and their personal interests and preference. 

British Council Inspection

“There are excellent facilities for relaxation. Students have comfortable common rooms in their boarding houses, and other areas in and around the school where they can relax or play. There is a large dining room where students and staff take their meals together. A good choice of food is presented from the school’s modern kitchens. All meals are included in the cost of the course”.
