    Our unique Summer School on the Isle of Wight, running during July and August. Alongside pupils of Ryde School and other UK children, your child will have activity-filled days specifically designed for children aged 9 to 14 to learn English through adventure with a fun-packed, adventurous, full-day programme. All activities are based at the School or on the Island - making best use of our extensive grounds and facilites and those of specialist Island providers.

    New for 2019 are courses specifically designed for older children, with our Literature and Life Skills course tailored for those aged 15 to 17, and our Pre-IB course designed for those who intend to study for the IB when they join the Sixth Form.


    English lessons are interactive and lively. Generally offered in the morning they are based in bright classrooms, around our campus in Ryde. Spoken English and idiomatic expression are modelled and used in a variety of exercises and games. Written fluency is also highlighted as students prepare and give presentations and prepare short pieces of transactional writing. The lessons are resourced using bespoke, differentiated materials which debate current events and issues relevant to young adults and their social and academic lives. We aim to instil in students confidence and a real enjoyment of communicating in English.

    All accommodation is based at our Boarding Houses in Bembridge, overlooking the sea and offering safe and rural English surroundings in which to relax and have fun.
