Summer English courses for Kids and Teens in England

Junior English Summer Camps in England. Students' Supervision.

Student Supervision is an important issue. The school has a duty of care, which is a legal responsibility for our students, in particular those under 16 years old. The following levels of supervision are provided.

At The Residence

Staff are always on duty in the evening and in the residence at night. In addition there is 24 hour security. Students who have been into the town centre must return to the residence by 10.30 pm and check in with the duty manager. Students are strictly prohibited from leaving the residence unsupervised after this time.

On Campus

During the evening students are only allowed in the playing areas in front of the residence, where members of staff are also present. In Nottingham, all meals, lessons and accommodation are provided in the same building.

In the park

Southampton: During the evening students are only allowed in the park in front of the residence, where members of staff are also present.

Walking To And From The Main Campus To The Residence

Staff escort the students to the main campus on their first day. After this students are allowed to make this walk in small groups unsupervised during the day.

In Town

Kingston and Oxford: Students may go out into the town unsupervised during the afternoon and evening when there are no lessons or excursions. Staff will be available at check points in the centre at these times. They must check back in to the residence by 10.30pm.

Nottingham: Students may go into town, as long as they are supervised by a staff member or group leader.

Southampton: Students of 16 years and older may go out into the town unsupervised during the afternoon, as long as they have logged out before going and they log in on their return. Parents who wish their child to have this additional freedom must complete and return the attached Student Supervision Form (Part VIII). Students under 16 may go out, as long as they are supervised by a staff member or group leader.

Excursions

Kingston, Oxford: Staff to student ratios are strictly enforced and students are double checked on and off buses. During excursions, free time is often given for the students to explore a designated area, e.g. a shopping area. Students can do this in small groups unsupervised but they are told the time and place to meet and also where staff will be during their free time.

Meals

All meals are provided in a large, comfortable cafeteria on the main campus, except on excursions when a packed-lunch is given to all students. Wholesome and varied food is served and special dietary requirements can be catered for. Please advise us at the time of enrolment if a student has any special dietary requirements.

Laundry

Laundry facilities are available at the residence where students are accommodated. Bed linen and towels are changed once a week, but no other laundry is included in the course fees. If students wish to wash clothes during their stay, they will be responsible for doing so. The cost is GBP 1.50 per wash. Tumble-drying is available at an extra charge.

Emergencies

A 24-hour emergency telephone number will be given in writing to students. All students will be issued with an identity card, which explains what action is to be followed in the event of an emergency or other difficulty. Students will be told to carry this card at all times.

All students must provide an emergency contact number to the staff on their first day. This should normally be the number of a parent/ guardian.

Breakages Deposit

A breakages deposit will be collected from all students on the first day of their course. This is to cover loss of keys and/or any damage caused to the facilities. Please note that the cost of master replacement keys is normally GPB 35 (or the equivalent amount in Euros). This deposit will be returned at the end of the course, minus any charges incurred. On departure all rooms will be inspected.

Rules for Students

Students must follow the law of the land, which mean that: a). No students can buy alcohol or cigarettes/tobacco (it is illegal in the UK if you are under the age of 18).

The use of alcohol and drugs is strictly forbidden and will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Students found to be in possession of alcohol or drugs may be reported to the police and their course terminated with no refund given. The school does not accept any liability for students who are under the influence of alcohol and/or illegal substances. No smoking is permitted while on the course. This applies to all students. Group leaders may only smoke in designated areas, outside the campus buildings.

Students are expected to keep their bedrooms tidy and put their litter in bins provided. Students are not permitted to leave the campus unsupervised without permission. Students must leave the communal areas in the residence at 11pm and be in their own rooms by 12am when "quiet time" will start.

We reserve the right to terminate without notice the course of any student who persistently misconducts him/herself during the programme, or who fails to meet the attendance requirements of the course. There is no refund of fees to students whose courses are terminated in this way. If a student is a part of a group, the group leader must be involved in any disciplinary procedures that are enforced.

What to Bring

The weather in England is usually warm and settled. Temperatures typically range from 17-21 degrees centigrade / 64-71 degrees Fahrenheit. There should be very little rain and lots of sunshine. Students should bring summer clothes as well as a pullover, waterproof jacket, swimwear, trainers (sports shoes) for outside usage, white-soled sports shoes for use in the sports hall, and a towel.

Students should also bring 2 x passport-sized photographs, an alarm clock and hairdryer (+ adapter) if needed. Students should remember to bring an adaptor for their mobile phone charger.

We advise that students do not bring valuable items such as expensive watches, jewellery, valuable electronic items, expensive cameras etc. However, valuables and items such as passports and airline tickets can be handed over to our staff for safekeeping. We cannot accept responsibility for the loss of items or money unless given to us for safekeeping.
