Summer School

Welcome to the Brooke House Summer School website.

We have been successfully running our residential Summer School for more than 40 years. Boys and girls from all over the world between the ages of 10 and 17 visit us, either in small groups or on their own, and come from between 2 and 9 weeks. The atmosphere is positive, friendly and welcoming, and many of our Summer School students return to us year after year.

The lessons are designed to give you the chance to improve your English in interesting and fun ways. You can also take part in a wide range of afternoon sporting and social activities as well as full day trips on Saturdays and Sundays. All lessons and accommodation are mixed-nationality which gives you plenty of time to practice speaking English with your new friends and to learn about new cultures. Every year, we also invite local young people to join in the activity and excursions programme. 

All of the Summer School staff - teachers, activity leaders and residential staff - want your time with Brooke House to be great fun and full of happy memories, and they will do everything they can to make sure you are well looked after, improve your English and have a good time! They also know that this might be the first time you are away from your friends and family. Many of them work at the college during the year and have a lot of experience taking care of and teaching young people from all over the world. 

At Brooke House Summer School, our goal is clear and simple. We want to give you a fun, friendly, caring, safe and educational stay with us. We want you to feel part of the Summer School family and to give you an experience that you will always remember. When you leave us at the end of your visit, we want you to be able to say:

  • You had an active, busy and fun time
  • Your English improved and you are more confident using it
  • The Summer School staff looked after you and made you feel safe
  • You felt at home and part of the Summer School family
  • You made new friends for life and learned about different cultures

As a Summer School we are always looking at ways to do things better and be the best that we can be. Your opinion is really important to us - we want you to be able to talk to us if there is anything you are not happy with or if there is something that you think we could do better. Remember, you are the reason we are here. You matter.

Thank you for visiting the Brooke House Summer School website.
