Student Information - What are the details of the excursions?
Every excursion is different, but they generally involve a tour around a well-known destination and the entrance to an attraction, as well as some free time for shopping. Wednesday trips have a heavy language focus and are led by the teachers, who will have prepared their classes in advance. Sunday trips are with the Activity Leaders who give students the chance to practice their English in a more relaxed atmosphere.
Academic - What is a Specialist Skills Workshop?
Our Specialist Skills Workshops give students the chance to use their English in creative and relevant ways. Before they arrive, students select a number of workshops from the available options, which are: Junior Journalist; Film Making; Debating, Presentations and Public Speaking; Skills for Environmentalists; Football Academy; Examination Techniques.
Accommodation - How is the accommodation allocated?
We have a range of different bedrooms, comprising single, 2, 3, 4 and 5 beds. Students will be placed with students of the same gender, similar age, and a different nationality. It is very important to us that you are practising your English at all times so you won’t be placed with another student who speaks the same language as you.
Airport Transfers - Who will meet me at the airport?
If you are using our shuttle service (10:00 – 17:00), you will be met by a member of staff from Wimbledon School of English. Prior to arrival you will receive confirmation of their name and contact number in case of emergency. When you come out of arrivals, please look for a sign with the school logo and the words “WSE Junior Summer Centre”. You will be escorted to campus together with other students that have arrived that day.
