We’ve designed the Summer Language School at Stonyhurst for international students who wish to improve their English language, experience life at a traditional English boarding school, gain important life skills and increase their confidence and independence.

We offer two-week residential courses which can be combined to create a three or four-week course.  (Please note, there are limited places for the 3 week course).  An option to study a one week course may be available, by special arrangement only.

2019 Dates

Course 1: Friday 5th July – Friday 19th July
Course 2: Friday 19th July – Friday 2nd August

We deliver 23 hours of high quality English language teaching each week, by qualified teachers.  Also students are required to do 45 minutes of supervised homework on 2 evenings per week. Afternoons aim to put students’ learning into practice using project-based lessons and a fun programme of recreational activities and sports.

We guarantee small classes, of up to 12 students, to offer students greater individual attention and a more focused learning experience.
