Summer School

Concord College is an established international boarding school which, as well as providing the highest quality education for students from all over the world, have also been running summer courses for over 30 years.

Throughout the years many thousands of young people from all over the world have attended our programmes. The students from very diverse cultures, religions and creeds, live and study together in harmony and make long-lasting friendships.  Many students return for several years in a row to meet up with friends made on previous programmes and we have children and even grandchildren of former students attending.

2016 saw 2 wonderful courses with students from over 40 different countries attending. The atmosphere of friendship, respect, inspiration, equality and co­operation, which is traditional on our courses, was once again so evident and very special.  It is thanks to all students and staff for their positive contribution which makes our summer courses so enjoyable.

Our very successful Science course has been expanded this year to include junior science from the age of 10, which completes a full suite of courses in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, with the addition of Maths and Economics at pre GCSE and pre 'A' level.

Concord has an impressive record of offers from top universities, and I am delighted to announce the introduction of our Oxbridge Preparation programme to summer school. These courses have been designed to meet the needs and demands of ambitious and gifted students who are preparing to apply for top UK universities.

The aims of a Concord College summer programme for its students are:

  • To build students’ confidence in their own abilities;
  • To improve skills in English, including reading, writing, speaking and listening and/or to complement and increase students’ understanding of Science, Maths and Economics;
  • To provide opportunities for students to find self-worth and enjoy their student life through a wide range of enrichment activities;
  • To see something of Britain and the British way of life;
  • To meet and make friends with young people from many different countries and enhance their intercultural understanding for international harmony;
  • To provide a safe and caring environment.

The courses are constructed carefully to give each student the opportunity to study a full English or Science programme and, with the addition of a wide range of sporting and social activities available, there is so much to enjoy and see.

The word 'concord' means harmony and it is a fantastic opportunity for young people from all over the world to live and study together on campus and to experience other languages and cultures.
