Summer English Course in Stonehouse


Learn English in Stonehouse

Stonehouse, in the county of Gloucestershire is a small, peaceful city, located to the North-East of London, and only 64 kilometres from Stratford-upon-Avon and 80 kilometres from Bath. Stonehouse was mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086, when William the Conqueror ordered that they keep a record of the value of the kingdom. Nowadays, this tranquil city of around 8,000 residents is a perfect spot for students to learn English in a safe environment.

Academic Center

The program takes place in Wycliffe College, one of the most impressive boarding schools in the region. Founded in 1882, the school has been adapting itself with time and today it offers modern and renovated facilities including large classrooms, light rooms, dining rooms, indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, indoor sports centre, theatre and outdoor sports fields.


Classes take place in the school itself and students can choose:

  • General English: 15 hours a week from Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 12.30pm
  • Intensive English: 23 hours a week from Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 12.30pm, and 4 afternoons a week from 2.00pm to 4.00pm
All students will take a compulsory English level test on the first day to assess the level of language knowledge of each student. The maximum number of students per class is 15.
Students who opt to take the horse riding or golf options cannot take the intensive program as the sports will take place on 3 afternoons per week from 2.00pm to 4.00pm.


The school is divided into two buildings, each of which includes classrooms, bedrooms and dining rooms so that the students will be located in one building or the other depending on their age group alone. Students from 8 to 10 years will stay in rooms of 3 to 7 students (the allocation will be made by the school), and students from 12 to 16 years generally stay in double or triple rooms, although there are some rooms that can house up to a maximum of 5 students.
