Notes about the above Services

The below refers to the Residential English Language Course.

See our website www.manorcourses.co.uk to see more details for our Residential English Language Course’s lessons, Welfare provision, Excursions and Activities.

See the respective web pages for relevant information on the different courses.

All reasonable care has been taken to ensure the accuracy of statements in our promotional materials. However, this information has been translated into various languages and interpreted by our agents, therefore differences may arise. Parents/Guardians should notify us of any inaccuracies.

Safety and security notes about our Activities sessions:

Students must register their name with their group.

Students aged 13 years and older should join an organised Activity and stay for the full session – this is optional. They can have restricted Free-Time if they choose not to join or stay with the Activity staff. They can only do this 1 session per day. They will not be directly supervised.

Students aged 12 years and younger must join an organised Activity and stay for the full session with the Activity staff until the end – this is compulsory.

There are different options and finishing times for older students (15 years and older) to attend a few evenings per week. Details will be provided to older students during the course.

Care and support notes about our Welfare systems:

The Directors, First Aiders, and other staff, will act as the ‘Guardian’ of each student and will provide appropriate care when a student appears to be, or is diagnosed as, suffering from any physical, health, medical or emotional problems. They may take action or decisions they consider appropriate in the circumstances.

There will be short periods when students are not supervised (between Lessons and Activity sessions, and before or after they finish their meals). Staff do supervise the houses and patrol the campus, but students will not be directly supervised.

Students aged under 8 may enrol with a group of older students. Adult students (parents or older siblings) who enrol with their family members will be accommodated in separate staff accommodation or off-campus. Adults’ accommodation on-campus is subject to police checks supplied from their home country.

Safety and security notes about our Excursions:

The excursions’ focus is on tourism and leisure, seeing culture and relaxing. Students can go shopping.

Staff will give students unsupervised Free-Time for shopping in approximately 1 hour periods. They will give students rules to follow and ID, maps and phone numbers to carry. Staff will show them on a map where they can find a staff member waiting for them if they have problems.

Students aged 12 years and younger will not get unsupervised Free-Time for shopping. Staff will stay with them.

Lesson and syllabus notes about our English course:

Our general English course consists of an average of 5 Communication lessons and 5 Language lessons per week, plus 1 each of an Explore, Activity and Review lesson per week. Some weeks the balance of lesson types may differ to this.

Our youngest students follow a syllabus with a wider range of lesson contents, for shorter periods.

Any Private Tuition will be different to the above.

We try to respect our stated maximum of 15 students per class, but this may be exceeded in instances when there is no alternative class for a student’s level, or a teacher is unavoidably absent, and will not exceed by more than 1 extra student for a one week period.

We try to provide classes for all levels but for some periods a student may be placed in a higher or lower level class until a space is available at the appropriate level.

Students leaving at the end of week 1 (Thurs 11th July 2019) or week 4 (Thurs 1st Aug 2019) will only receive their full 18 hours for that week if they depart the College in the afternoon and attend lessons on that morning.

Valuables, Bank, Lost Property, Theft & Personal Items

We do recommend students bring some ‘pocket money’ for spending on-campus and when on Excursions.

We recommend not bringing expensive items, including clothes, that are at risk of theft, or irreplaceable if lost, or that have sentimental value.

Students do not receive a key to their room because this compromises safety.

We advise students to lock valuable items in their suitcases or in the Office.

MC cannot accept responsibility for items left unattended, lost, damaged or stolen.

Lost/missing items of laundry are resolved between the student and their House Manager in the houses.

If MC or Hurst staff find any items left on campus, they will be kept in the Office.

If students lose anything, they must report it to the Office. Parents can do this for them by phone or email.

Students should return later the next day to ask if it has been found.  

If MC cannot find items while the student is at Hurst, after they return home we will endeavour to find them within 1 week.

At the Office we provide a number to phone the police if an item is believed stolen. This will get a crime reference number. Students/Parents/Guardians/Group Leaders/Agents can use this when/if you want to claim on insurance when you return home.

We may be able watch CCTV from corridors and building entrances/exits, to check intruders entering rooms, but cannot check inside rooms.

We will punish anyone if found stealing items, according to our ‘Rules & Conduct’ and ‘Discipline’ policies.
