A Day in the Life (not so quick!)
For 2022 Celc and BSE are drawing on the best of both of their experiences of running junior summer residential programmes to offer what we are sure will be a wonderful experience for young people enthusiastic to travel once more, improve their English, see some great sights and make friends from around the world.
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.
We will be following carefully considered protocols, taking into account the very latest advice. These will be published on this page in due course and will be sent to every student’s parent.
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. 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.
Although we will adjust the programme if there are concerns about social distancing and the health of students and staff, our plan, as always, is to offer 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, Gunwharf Quay (outlet) Shopping Village and Durdle Door.
Other visits are organised to the beach, forest and Christchurch as well as to the pier, gardens and shops of Bournemouth. Although the excursions are designed to be fun they also offer plenty of scope for sightseeing and learning.
Students benefit from a wide range of activities led by our very committed activity leaders. These include the Celc Dance Club (ballroom & modern), FA football coaching, swimming, art & craft, raft 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.
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, video diary highlights and sit down dinner. Waiter service, posh dress code, proper dancing!
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.
