WSE launches brand new summer school for juniors

25 September, 2015

Wimbledon School of English (WSE) in the UK has announced it will launch a brand new separate summer school for juniors next year.

The Wimbledon School of English summer school will be based at Lord Wandsworth College in Hampshire, UK.

The school has long specialised in the adult learner market and offers a comprehensive study programme that includes general, business, exam preparation and English for specific purposes courses. Explaining the move to establish a foothold in the junior market, Kieran Hayde, Sales, Marketing and Groups Manager at WSE said, “It is something our agent partners across the globe have been requesting for a number of years and we look forward to providing the same high-quality service to their junior clients.”

The new WSE summer school will be based at Lord Wandsworth College on the Surrey and Hampshire border, just an hour outside of London.

As one of the UK’s premier boarding schools students will enjoy a traditionally-British boarding school experience in modern boarding houses with large, well-equipped relaxation and leisure areas, explained Hayde.

The college boasts world-class sports facilities and junior students will have access to tennis courts, a heated swimming pool, two sports halls and a number of grass and AstroTurf pitches. “We will also offer dance and fitness classes, arts and crafts clubs, music workshops and a number of evening social activities,” added Hayde. The social programme also includes one half-day and two full-day excursions.  

The residential English language programme is available from July 10 to August 13 and will cater for 12-to-16 year olds. Junior students will study general English for 15 hours plus an additional six hours of a language skills workshop that focusses on areas such as journalism, film-making, social media, debating, presentations and public speaking. “Our courses are deliberately intensive and students will have 21 full classroom hours,” said Hayde. Ielts and Trinity exam preparation will also be available.
