Summer School for Younger Students (10-17 years old)

Our summer school is the perfect opportunity to learn English and make friends from all over the world.

This year we have two summer school courses available:
1. Standard Summer School (10-17 years old)
2. Semi-Intensive Summer School (14-17 years old)

Our Standard course provides 20 English lessons per week.
Our Semi-Intensive course provides 24 English lessons per week.

Please download our detailed course description here.

Our course objectives are:
1. To give you an experience of English as a living language that will motivate and inspire you to learn English
2. To give you a language boost to increase your confidence and fluency, particularly in listening and speaking
3. To help you improve the level of your English through a combination of language input and practice activities
4. To help you develop the study skills that will enable you to continue to learn English after their course
5. To increase your understanding of and sensitivity towards other cultures

Levels and Progress
For our Standard and Semi-Intensive courses we run classes at five levels:

  • Elementary (CEFR A1 – A2) Can communicate with enough language for basic needs and simple situations
  • Pre-Intermediate (CEFR A2) Can communicate with enough language for everyday practical needs
  • Intermediate (CEFR B1) Can communicate effectively in most situations but sometimes has to work hard to do so
  • Upper Intermediate (CEFR B2) Can communicate effectively in most situations and usually can easily re-phrase in order to be understood
  • Advanced (CEFR C1) Can communicate effectively in all but the most difficult situations

You will take a test on the first day to place you in the correct level. Your teacher will give you a report and certificate at the end of your course.

Your daily timetable will be as follows:

Our Location

LTC Eastbourne is in an 18th century mansion, once home to the Duke of Devonshire, near the centre of Eastbourne, one of the most beautiful towns on the south coast of England. Did you know, Eastbourne is one of the sunniest places in the UK?

You will enjoy spending time inside the historic school building and our 10-hectare private garden.


We have dormitory-style residential accommodation above the school for students ages 10-16.

If you are age 13+ you can choose shared homestay accommodation with a local homestay provider. We usually recommend homestay for 17 year-olds.

All homestay providers hosting under 18’s undergo a police check.

Please note that for legal reasons, we cannot offer residential accommodation or homestay in one house for more than 28 days. If you stay longer than 28 days, you must change your accommodation.

Social Programme

You will have a full programme of afternoon and evening activities, plus a half-day excursion every Wednesday and a full-day excursion every Saturday.









Care of Young Students
