  • What is this Summer School about?

    Our Classic Summer School is full of interactive activities for the whole day. Children will study English in the mornings or afternoons, and, in the other half of the day, they will enjoy either a cultural, educational or recreational excursion! After that, they will take part in our on-site activities to complete the excitement of the day, before going to bed.

    We encourage a quick socializing process through our welcome disco or party on the first day. In that way, our students can start meeting their new friends. At the end of the Summer School, we hold a graduation ceremony, followed by a farewell party, where they will have the chance to enjoy the last moments with the people they met during the summer.

    If this is your child’s first Summer School, you are in the right place!
