Our English Programmes

Learning English in beautiful, historic Oundle offers a safe and very friendly learning environment for your son or daughter. They will experience the culture of a whole new society which can never be learnt in a classroom. We design our English Programmes to build confidence by encouraging our students to communicate with as many English people as possible while immersed in a truly authentic English environment. Let us design an English course to suit your individual requirements for learners of all ages and abilities.

Students travelling independently or with a group can choose to experience English family life for themselves or to stay in residential accommodation at prestigious Oundle School or uniquely a combination of both experiences. Please contact us for further details.

Stay with an English Family

We arrange accommodation personally for each student with one of our carefully selected Home stay hosts who are all native speakers. They guarantee a very warm and caring welcome and will encourage you child to join in with family life for the duration of their stay. Many of our students choose to return and stay with the same English family each year. This very special experience offers lots of important language practice as well as helping to develop overall personal confidence.
