Centre of Excellence

Named as one of the top UK Summer Schools by the EL Gazette (2013, 2014) - considering our latest British Council inspection report - our courses are designed to captivate our students, to develop their English, whatever their level, and awaken their curiosity in a profound and impactful way.

For the last 20 years, we have been fine-tuning what makes an outstanding Summer School. This involves hand-picking the best school sites in the South East of England and ensuring that every student experiences stunning locations and outstanding facilities, wherever they are based.

Every day they are with us, Bede’s Summer School students partake in a carefully considered combination of formal English lessons and exciting practical activities, which develop their social skills and encourage them to step outside of their comfort zone.

A huge part of what we offer is the chance to have fun, and we ensure that, through balancing different nationalities and demographics, and through a programme designed to encourage social interaction and integration, all students feel like they are part of a happy family while they are with us. Simply put, Bede’s Summer School creates the most immersive experiences and inspires our students to embrace each and every opportunity.
