Scarborough is a seaside resort. It takes three hours to get to Edinburgh and London by train. The Stephen Joseph Theatre and the biggest European theatre under the open sky are located there. The town has two beautiful beaches, an old castle, parks and gardens – one of them is situated right next to school and used by students. Students can have a coffee in a coffee shop or relax in park. There is a canteen in the campus.
School is accredited by the British Council, has a lot of IT materials, interactive board, Wi-Fi and also offers advice to students regarding high schools and colleges/universities in England. All of this is included in the price of course.
The price also includes material for studying, final certificate, possibility to use centre for self-study, internet connection, a rich social programme, services connected with accommodation as well as two days of excursions (Thursdays) – including transport and teacher who will guide students. You will be given your own identification number and telephone number of one member of the team, who will be available 24/7.
School offers two types of course during the summer holiday:
- Junior vacation course – for children aged 7 to 12
- Teen vacation course – for young people aged 13 to 18
Junior vacation course
A child spends free time with a host family and is given a ride to school by one of its members. The family takes care of a child as if they are their own. If there are activities on Monday and Wednesday, a guide appointed by the school takes child to a place of meeting and a host family takes the student back home.
Children will live with the host families. Information about them will be sent before departure.
There are usually more foreign students in a family but just one from Slovakia. We would like to point out that rooms in England are smaller than rooms in Slovakia. Your children will have bed, cupboard and table. All the families live within half an hour’s walk of school, which means that we will not have to buy bus tickets for the children.
Flight ticket – is payed separately and can be provided by SPEAK. It is without a fee.
School starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 4:00 p.m. on Monday and Thursday. Lunchbreak is from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. After that they are divided into multiple groups and take a part in extra curriculum activities. These activities are under supervision and occur between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. On Mondays and Wednesdays students meet at 7 p.m. at the train station then they have a disco night (Mondays) and sports night (Wednesdays). There is an all-day excursion on Thursday, which is chosen by school. It is always educational and included in the price. School ends at 2:00 p.m. on Fridays. Students then go out with their friends from other countries. There will be excursions either on Saturday or Sunday – see tuition fees and prices (for our students at a discounted price of £30 per excursion).
