Why choose our Westminster summer camp?

  • Incredible central London location
  • A historic and respected English school
  • Fun and interesting excursion opportunities
  • Students explore the capital with our Discover London programme

This summer centre is housed in Westminster school, in the heart of London. The central location means it's perfect for students wanting easy access to the excitement of the busy city. Only a short walk from the Strand and the West End, the very best of the capital is within easy reach. Art, architecture and artefacts from as far back as the 10th century surround the school.

The programme for this summer centre is our 'Discover London' offer.

Incorporating a ‘zig-zag’ curriculum, alternating days between tuition and sightseeing, this programme is a great way for students to enjoy learning about the city in which they study, while also putting their new English skills into practice.

The tuition element in our Discovery programme follows the same syllabus
as our Standard programme (15 hours of tuition per week), and tours are delivered by Twin activity leaders. 

The programme also includes two full day excursions, to the seaside town of Brighton and the famous university town of Cambridge - both of which include entrance to an attraction. Our excursions let students develop their understanding of British culture while having fun!
