The sample programmes illustrate the range and depth of inspiring lectures, exciting team challenges, interactive workshops and stimulating co-curricular activities that are typically included in a two-week timetable.

The older students (15-18 years) complete an advanced academic programme in their chosen subject, based on specialist tuition, team projects, real-world case studies, research, study visits and talks by professionals, which deepen their subject knowledge, critical thinking, communication and leadership skills and their preparedness for the transition to university. Read more.

In addition to studies in their specialist subject, younger students (13-14 years old) work in mixed-nationality teams on exciting STEAM*-focused projects and workshops, including robotics, raspberry pi coding, 3D design and print, and group activities such as a Model United Nations debate and a Dragon’s Den business pitch, all of which are designed to help them develop inter-disciplinary knowledge and skills for the future, such as critical thinking, problem-solving, communication and teamwork. Read more.

We pride ourselves on our unique pedagogical approach and we are always happy to discuss tailoring the timetable to enrich our students’ learning experience and inspire them to expand their horizons in new and exciting ways. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
