Embassy Summer Plus will be an expanded version of the Embassy summer programme and will include at least nine hours per week of expert tuition for students in specialised activities, including tennis, horse riding, football and sailing.

“In response to feedback from agents and students, we chose five unique locations in the UK and USA to offer students more specialised training than is available at other summer centres,” said Stu Gold, Senior Vice President, Global Product and Marketing. “Introducing another tier of activity will not only broaden our appeal, but provide additional opportunities for students who love Embassy to come back again.”

The five locations chosen to host the Embassy Summer Plus programme are: Chichester, Oxford-Wheatley, Reigate and Southsea (all UK); and Storm King School in New York, USA.

Embassy English will also be offering a new centre for 2015 at the University of Sussex in Brighton, UK. Surrounded by the South Downs National Park, the new Brighton centre will offer access to sports facilities, single en suite accommodation, full-day trips to London and half-day trips to Brighton.

Other enhancements announced for agents and students as part of Embassy English’s ‘Best Summer Ever’ campaign for 2015 include an elite programme at traditional English boarding schools and the addition of Ielts preparation courses at six UK centres.

In other company news, Robert Morgan was recently unveiled as the new Managing Director of Embassy English, assuming responsibility for the brand’s global business.

“Robert’s strong global management skills and customer orientation make him an excellent addition to Study Group’s leadership team,” said Study Group CEO, David Leigh, when making the announcement. “I am extremely confident in his abilities to lead Embassy to great success.”

For the past two years, Morgan has served as President at SHL Talent Measurement, a human capital management company, and previously served as Chief Operating Officer and then President at Hudson, a recruitment and management company, and President of the Saratoga Institute.
