Are you looking for a summer English course with a difference?
Our courses cater for small groups and are based right on the beautiful coast of south-east England.
Students are taught by experienced Oxford University graduates and many morning lessons are used as preparation for the amazing afternoon activities.
A note from the founder of Oyster Education:
I set up Oyster Education five years ago having been a highly successful teacher at a top independent school in England. I realised that large numbers of students were coming to England for summer courses but the services they received varied enormously. I could see that there would be a demand for a course where the standards were as high as in a top independent school. Such parents expect academic excellence, experienced teachers, good food and accommodation and a package of exciting outdoor activities every day.
My courses focus on English but also have a broad scientific context. They are very much geared towards the Middle Years Programme leading to the IB Diploma and they are tailored to the student for whom a place at a good university is anticipated. Group sizes are 4 to 8 and courses last for 2 weeks, although some students stay longer. Some families have already sent their children on 4 of my courses and the older ones are now at university. The pupils are occupied from 9 am to 6 pm every day. The package of activities has been described as simply ‘outstanding’. The courses are based on the coast and we operate a 9 metre powered catamaran which the students are trained to use. Other activities include paintball, off-road cycling, raft-building and catching a myriad of sea creatures from oysters to lobsters, most of which are simply delicious to eat! All activities have been risk- assessed and are fully insured. Many of my students book together in small groups, typically two to four students aged 12-16. If you feel that you would like to send your son or daughter on one of my courses I strongly suggest that you also form a group. They will have so many stories to share and the whole experience becomes what it should be: a great adventure!
Full details can be found on my website and fees are all-inclusive.
