Summer School Director

Our Summer School venue – Moorlands College – is beautifully located just 2.5 miles from Christchurch and inside the New Forest National Park. Beaches, forest, the Purbeck Hills and Bournemouth are all very close by.

Celc and BSE continue their partnership to offer the best possible programme and experience. Our aim is that the young people that join us make strong progress with their English language learning, grow in personal confidence, see and enjoy English places and culture, and make friends and memories that will last a lifetime.

Care and Supervision

Students benefit from a leader / student ratio of 1:14, 24-hour supervision and ready access to First Aid and medical support. Trips and excursions are accompanied by competent activity leaders and a manager. Students are issued with an emergency card that carries key telephone numbers.


The course has a thematic structure. This provides consistency and plenty of opportunities for students to recycle language in different situations. The mornings consist of three one-hour sessions and these are structured to engage students with classroom-based tasks that prepare them for the afternoon projects.

The projects involve both the teachers and outside professional instructors working together to facilitate both the content and the language needed to complete the task. Leadership skills, teamwork and initiative are nurtured.

Teaching & learning amounts to 20+ hours per week. We ensure that students cover all the essentials of grammar, vocabulary and language skills. All teachers are qualified and experienced. At the end of Summer School each student is presented with a course completion certificate.


Students enjoy very comfortable twin-bedded rooms. They each share with a student of a similar age but of a different nationality. This really helps with integration and the use of English. Students are taught in superb classrooms, and meals are served in the spacious Dining Hall. There are lounges, sports hall, state-of-the-art auditorium, bonfire pit and beautiful parkland grounds.


The programme offers a very generous number of quality excursions. The draft detailed programme can be downloaded from this page. It includes trips to London, Thorpe Park Theme Park, Bath, Oxford, Salisbury, Swanage, Winchester and Durdle Door. Although the excursions are designed to be fun they also offer plenty of scope for sightseeing, shopping and learning.


Students benefit from a wide range of activities led by our very committed activity leaders. These include the Celc Dance Club, FA football coaching, swimming, art & craft, team building, fashion show, basketball, cake baking, uni-hoc, fitness workouts, volleyball, open mic evening, bonfires, table tennis, film nights and loads more.


Students enjoy English, Continental and American breakfast options, along with varied main meals plus barbecues and good quality packed lunches when on full-day excursions.

Dinner Dance

The special Friday evening event at the end of week 2 and week 4 is a big highlight and includes non-alcoholic cocktails, awards ceremony, prizes and sit down dinner. Red carpet, waiter service, posh dress code!


Students of any faith and none are equally welcome. The programme will be safe and wholesome. Respect, tolerance and honesty are expected of all students and staff. One of the activity options on each Sunday will be a short Christian worship service for those who want to attend.
