High School Programme
About the programme
Our immersive High School Programme offers international students the unique opportunity to experience what it is like to study in a British school and live with a family in the UK, whilst they improve their English language skills and cultural awareness.
The High School programme is aimed at students aged 15 – 17 who wish to have this life-changing international experience.
International students participate in the same classes as British students, following all lessons in English, and will have the chance to make new international friends.
