Its aim is to give their students the best education to help them to achieve their potential. The students will live in the school in an excellent atmosphere.

Its amazing residential buildings and sports facilities which include football and rugby grounds, a swimming pool, stables and a kart circuit, make this school the best place to spend your summer.
We chose the Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate for our Junior Summer School because of it comprises four schools and a kindergarten, each with its own unique qualities, but all sharing a common purpose of providing students with a first class education and the opportunity to work towards higher education and a successful career. There are strong academic standards across the Foundation and students are encouraged to have high expectations for themselves and their future career prospects.
There is a wide range of facilities available, which enable students to enjoy themselves after class. Studying English is not only about learning in class from books, here you can also learn while making new friends from all over the world. We are giving to all our Junior Summer school students the great opportunity to get to know people from a wide variety of countries.
