Mission Statement:

Through our international summer camps we aim to help 7 - 17 year olds improve their English and educate them for the excitements and challenges of the future.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

At English Country Schools we believe that young people are the future and that their education is an investment that will be repaid many times in many ways. Through our international summer camps we aim to help educate them for the excitements and challenges of the future. To succeed in a globally connected world they will need to be able to use English effectively as an international language. They will also need to be well-rounded individuals, self-confident and independent, able to understand and collaborate easily with people from different countries and cultures. We call this ‘Learning for Life’ and aim to make it part of everything we do: in classrooms and workshops, during the sports and activity programme and through the residential experience.

At the same time we remember that children and teenagers are with us on holiday: fun and friendship in a safe and well-supervised environment are just as important.

Sarah and I have been running English Country Schools for over 25 years. As parents we understand how you feel for your child away from home. Contact us whenever you want and we will deal with you personally and directly.

Children and teenagers return healthy and refreshed from our courses, with improved English, new life skills and broadened horizons.

We look forward to welcoming you to English Country Schools.
