Wimbledon School of English is primarily a school for students aged 18 and older. Whilst we welcome students aged 16 and above, it should be noted that we cannot provide 24 hour supervision. If they are not staying with a relative or family friend, 16 and 17 year olds will be required to stay in half-board homestay accommodation.
We ask that parents or guardians of students aged 16 and 17 read our 'Notes for Parents and Guardians of students aged under 18' before booking their child to study here. This will help you to understand what to expect when your child comes to study with us.
We have a guide for 16 and 17 year olds which they will be given on their first day. Download the Advice & Emergency Details for Under-18s guide.
Students aged 16 or 17 coming to the UK will need to have a completed Parental Travel Consent Form. There are two types of forms; you should complete the one most relevant to you.
The parents/guardians of students aged 16 or 17 studying at WSE are asked to complete a parental consent form for their child. This includes curfew times and we ask you to keep within our guidelines when deciding these. This form must be sent at the time of booking, and a sample version is available to download here. Please note – we cannot issue enrolment documents until we have received this form.
WSE has a child protection policy in place for the safeguarding of students under 18 years of age studying with us and a designated Child Protection Officer.
