About Us

Bede’s Summer School will celebrate its 30th Anniversary in 2022.  Bede's aims to provide an amazing and unforgettable linguistic, social and cultural experience to every single one of its students.

Today, Bede's welcomes over 1,500 students from 6-20 years old from many different countries and offers a range of fully inclusive academic and holiday residential summer programmes at 4 beautiful boarding school and university locations in South East England in July and August.

Our range of different courses include English + multi-sports, intensive English, outdoor learning, professional football and dance, task-based projects to improve 21st Century Skills and university subjects.

Some courses use CLIL methodology, teaching English through a range of subjects such as science and technology, expanding students’ knowledge of the world at the same time as improving their language skills.

Intensive examination courses are available (Cambridge B1 Preliminary, B2 First and C1 Advanced, Trinity GESE and IELTS) for those students who wish to leave Bede’s with a recognised qualification.

Optional Academies offer professional tuition in a wide range of sports, leisure pursuits, creative activities and academic subjects and are designed to increase students’ skills, technique and knowledge.

Bede's Summer School is accredited by the British Council (last inspection July 2017) and is a proud member of Quality English and English UK. Bede’s is also named a Centre of Excellence by the EL Gazette (since 2013).
