                4th July - 12th August 2022

 

For peace of mind- free travel and medical insurance included for all student bookings as per the terms of our Endsleigh policy.

This summer- 2022- we are offering our junior courses in 2 age ranges:

  • 8 - 10 years- our English in Action course- not available in 2022

  • 11- 14 years- our Junior English Explorer course

  • 15 - 17 years- our Young Adult English Explorer course

Please note that we do not have homestay accommodation from 25th June to 23rd July 2022- we apologise for the inconvenience but there has been a sudden increase in bookings and we cannot guarantee availability for these times.

Junior English Explorer 11-14 years  and Young Adult English Explorer 15 -17 years            

 

This course- taught in two different age ranges- centres around daily topics related to everyday life experience of young learners and teenagers.

Lessons take place in the mornings or afternoons on a weekly zig zag timetable, with activities and excursions taking place on the opposite stream.

Our activity programme is specially designed to make the most of being in Totnes, a special community full of creative, sustaining and exciting ideas and people. The programme offers:

  • Three half-day sessions per week focused on building resilience in mind, body and spirit. Examples of activities include story-telling, dance, singing, meditation, mindfulness, yoga, foraging, forest bathing, quizzes around the town, group art projects and helping out in community projects.

  • Three evening activities per week focusing on shared performances, parties and presentations.

  • Two half-day excursions outside Totnes on public transport where possible to the South Devon coast for coastal walks and beach activities and to Dartmoor National Park for walks, history projects and environmental visits. 

  • One full day Saturday excursion further afield to Plymouth, Exeter and Cornwall for example.

  • New extra Plus options available- Robotics and Horse-riding. Same basic programme as the Explorer but with themed activities on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons instead of the standard course activities- not available 2022.

Safety and responsibility

For all our juniors,  safety is our number one concern  (followed closely by  having fun and learning English, of course!).  It is  important  for us to be able  to offer parents complete peace of mind, and  we provide the following to this end:

  • Host families carefully selected by the school team - all families are  inspected regularly and the responsible adult in homestay accommodation for under 18 students is DBS checked and other adults noted in the home check for the DBS

  • Professional, experienced and qualified supervisors for all outdoor adventure activities

  • Minimum of 1:15 supervision on all excursions and activities 

  • 24 hour emergency phone number

  • We use public transport as much as we can to protect our environment.  Where we do need to use a car or coach, we offset our carbon footprint through, for example planting trees.
