Experience in a UK Boarding School
Brockhurst and Marlston House Schools offer international students the possibility of attending in-term courses in one of the most traditional private schools in the UK. This is a life changing experience that will allow international students to dramatically improve their language skills while developing their self-confidence and character.
Two options are available:
Option 1 – For individuals. Students can take part in a short-term study, joining existing pupils in their daily timetabled lessons and will be accommodated in the single gender boarding houses. Students will improve their English language skills while immersing themselves in the best of the British private education system. Short-stay boarding is normally for a term, but we can accommodate pupils for shorter periods. The package will include tuition, accommodation and full board, social activities and excursions.
Option 2 – For groups. International students will attend a dedicated English course with qualified TEFL teachers in the morning and take part in all the extracurricular activities together with the existing pupils in the afternoon and evening. They will be accommodated in the single gender boarding houses. The experience can last 1 to 3 weeks. The package will include tuition, accommodation and full board, social activities and excursions.
