United Kingdom

Their aim is to improve their students’ English by increasing their confidence and communication skills. Their lessons include plenty of opportunities for students to use language and build their knowledge and confidence in English. This is further enforced outside the classrooms during activities, cultural visits and specialist sports courses.

Academic Year Programme

Ardmore are delighted to offer students the opportunity to study within one of the best school systems in the world. This programme offers an academic year at a British state school – at a choice of locations throughout the UK.

This programme provides an affordable alternative to studying at an independent UK school. Many academic year students use their stay in Britain as a “springboard” to their future educational and career aspirations – i.e. studying at a UK or International University where fluent English is a requirement, or with a view to being able to work anywhere in the world where they need an advanced level and understanding of English.

  • Students must be from European Economic Area (EEA)
  • Students will normally need at least an intermediate level of English (e.g. of IELTS 5.5 or similar in order to participate fully in lessons and gain the maximum benefit from this experience.
  • Minimum age is 11 years and maximum age is 18 years.
  • Academic year starts in September and ends in late July.
  • All students are required to complete a detailed application form – with educational, medical, family and personal history, as well as academic achievements. A school is then selected by Ardmore, according to the students’ requirements.

Full School Integration in UK and the USA

This programme is perfect for students who want to live the life of a British or American teenager for a short period. For group leaders and parents, this is an ideal opportunity for students to improve their English and understand the UK state or THEM public school systems.

Students will “buddy” up with teenagers and follow exactly the same curriculum for the whole school day, for a period of 1 – 7 weeks. They will participate in classes with other students, follow all the lessons in English as well as enjoying the opportunity to chat with them in a more relaxed setting at lunchtime. Group leaders accompanying the students are welcome to stay at school.

Why not book a Full School Integration Programme just before your group takes part in an Ardmore Summer / Easter course? It’s a great way to encourage language learning and give students added confidence before they start their course! Why not consider a London Sightseeing programme during half term?

The programme covers accommodation with carefully selected host families located close to the school. They have numerous locations where they can o er this programme and they will advise you of the possible availability for the dates you have chosen. Students will be fully immersed in either the British or American way of life, enjoying a truly memorable learning experience.
