About Us

Bede's Summer School  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 6 beautiful boarding school and university locations in South East England in July and August. Bede's Summer School aims to provide an amazing and unforgettable linguistic, social and cultural experience to every single one of its students.

Our range of different courses include English Plus, Little Explorers, Adventures in English, Young Influencers, London Explorers, English for the Future, Pathways to Higher Education and a selection of specialist courses including LALIGA Football Camps UK, Coding & Robotics, Pro-Dance and Zoology & Animal Management. 

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. Some courses are based around outdoor learning and improving 21st century skills whilst some courses give students the feel for university subjects and life in an academic context. 

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 for the teaching of English in the UK (last inspection August 2022 resulted in strengths in 10 areas) and is a proud member of Quality English and English UK. Bede’s Summer School has also been named a Centre of Excellence by the EL Gazette since 2013.
