Badminton School and Etherton Education recently announced that they have partnered to provide international children aged 13 – 17 with a new and exciting summer English language course for 2018.
An ‘Introduction to British Boarding at Badminton School’ is a boutique, four-week summer course built around the great qualities of British Boarding Schools and is an excellent introduction for international students wishing to study at a UK Boarding School. The course will run for the first time in July 2018, and will be open to children of all schools. During the four weeks, not only will students study intensive English language, but they will gain invaluable study skills by taking part in multi-disciplinary lessons, workshops and trips, taught and led by the high-quality teachers at Badminton School. Further skills in academic excellence, leadership and teamwork, communication, confidence and creativity will also be developed.
The course will be set up so that each week will have a specific theme, with trips and activities relevant to each theme being co-ordinated on the set weeks. The four themes will be: ‘Young Inventor’, ‘Young Adventurer’, ‘Young Citizen of the World’ and ‘Young Creator’. The trips included will be a visit to Warwick Castle, Brunel’s world famous Clifton Suspension Bridge and a trebuchet making activity; private access to Bristol Zoo followed by a formal dinner in their pavilion and a tour of the SS Great Britain; a trip to the ancient Roman Baths in Bath and a tour of the BBC Bristol Television Studio; a visit to Bristol’s International Balloon Fiesta and a clay model workshop with Aardman Animations, the creators of ‘Wallace and Gromit’.
The full four-week course will run from Sunday 15 July to Sunday 12 August 2018 and accommodation will be provided in one of Badminton School’s attractive, secure boarding houses. Houses have rooms containing two, three or four beds, kitchens, lounges, and have Wi-Fi available throughout. Etherton Education have already begun taking bookings, and they say that places are very limited.
