Ages and English levels

We accept students from 8-17 years old.

We will instruct beginners to advanced level English speakers.


Our fees are higher than our Residential English Language Course because of the dedicated team that stay with the group throughout the entire day. Students’ participation and performance and progress is monitored at every part (unlike during our English Course, where progress is monitored and reports given only for the 18 hours per week of lessons). This Performing Arts Course therefore demands more staffing. Fees also account for the fact a range of staff are supplied because the levels of each students may be different and thus require different degrees of personal attention.

Included in the fees

  • The same Welfare services as our standard Residential English Language Course (ie. full board, meals, snacks, laundry).
  • The same Excursion services (2 trips per week, entrances included to 1 attraction per Excursion and form the visit part of our Performing Arts Syllabus).
  • All Materials, plus any items produced by students.
  • Certificate and Report (written by the English teacher).
NB – The Performing Arts Course is different to our standard Residential English Language Course (which is a General English Course and is accredited by the British Council).
