International Student Programme (ISP)

International Students’ booklet – multilingual

We are proud to be able to offer an international programme for students from around the world who wish to come to the UK to study.  We offer either short term courses for 16-18 year old students (male and female) or longer term GCSE and ‘A’ level courses.  These are two years long.  We can accept both male and female students for ‘A’ level (16-18 years), and girls for GCSE (14-16 years).  These courses are open to any international student, no matter what their first language or level of competence in English.

The short term English language course we offer includes:

  • speaking and pronunciation
  • Vocabulary
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Grammar

Specific exam preparation is on offer if an IELTS assessment is required.

International students on the short term course will also choose academic subjects from our wide range of courses that will suit their chosen career or personal interests.  Other foreign languages such as French, Spanish or German are on offer too.

Students on both the short and long term courses will be placed with a local family, with their own room and meals provided.  Each student is assigned a pastoral tutor who will regularly supervise their welfare and provide weekly feedback home.

Fee details for both short and long term courses are on the next pages.
