Bright World would like to introduce Sidcot’s Summer Language programme with Academic Summer. Whether you are an international or British student you will find a wide choice of academic subjects. Our programme is suitable for you, whether you are preparing for a school or College in the UK, GCSE’s, A-levels, The IB Diploma or even University. Academic Summer, along with Bright World will support your academic development, making you better prepared for your student careers.
Academic Juniors (aged 7 to 12) and Academic Summer (aged 13 to 18) takes place at Sidcot School near Bristol.
Students aged 7 to 12 will be taught by primary school teachers and will follow a Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) approach.
Students aged 13 to 14 will be in the IGCSE classes and will do a range of subjects again following the CLIL approach.
Students aged 15 to 18 will be in the IB and A Level classes and they will choose 4 subjects each week to study. They need to choose their subjects on their application form so timetables can be written around what students want to study.
Sidcot has separate boys and girls boarding accommodation on the school campus.
We will also be offering a full leisure programme of trips and activities including sports, evening activities and weekend trips to complement the academic programme and to encourage social interaction in English.
Our arrival and departure day is a Saturday.
• Good IT facilities and wireless access throughout the campus
• Library and study area for private study
• A purpose-built Arts Centre with Music, Drama and Arts facilities
Service & Care
You will enjoy three cooked meals a day in the school dining room. You will be looked after in a secure, caring and supportive environment where pastoral as well as academic and social needs are met by qualified and experienced staff. The service includes a nurse who is on call at all times and runs a surgery for students every morning between 8.30am and 9.30am.
For students who are looking for a stimulating and enjoyable summer experience Academic Summer promises to enhance your subject knowledge as well as improving learning skills across the curriculum. The service offered will also improve your child’s communication skills in both an academic and social setting.
Your child will also gain Certificates and reports to add to your personal academic portfolio.
“I’ve had a great experience at Academic Summer. It helped me to find new friends, improve my English, become more confident and much more. I felt myself comfortable all the time because I was sure that I could always ask other students or staff members for help no matter what. The course helped me to prepare for DLD College where I am planning to study in September 2011.”
