Country

Moreton Hall is amongst the most popular language programmes in the UK! This English private school turns into a renowned language centre during the summer months, where students aged 8 – 13 study and reside on this beautiful campus. Students enrol in this exciting study abroad English programme to make great friends, play heaps of sports and visit to some amazing places! Designed specifically for children and young adolescents, this language camp is hosted in the charming town of Bury St. Edmunds, just 35 minutes from Cambridge. 

Participants reside in dormitories with 3 – 9 other students from countries around the world. Teachers sleep in rooms adjacent to the dormitories and are on call throughout the night. Safety and comfort are paramount at this school, with students supervised 24 hours a day – they can’t leave campus unless supervised. Moreton Hall is equipped with first-class facilities including a heated indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, a sports hall and large sports grounds. This small summer camp enrols a maximum of 48 students at a time. The school takes care that no large groups from any particular country are registered in any one course, encouraging students to communicate in English as much as possible! English lessons are taught in the mornings for 12.5 hours a week, while various activities are planned for afternoons and evenings. All of this takes place on a stunning campus equipped with excellent facilities.

English Courses

English courses take place every morning, from Monday to Friday. Students work on their vocabulary, grammar, expression and oral comprehension through participation in different projects. A key focus of this programme is teaching English in a fun and friendly environment: lessons and activities are organised so that children are continuously engaged, involved and having fun! Activities Afternoons and evenings are dedicated to various social activities, although 30 minutes is put aside a day for homework!

Excursions

An excursion takes place every weekend, including visits to London, to theme parks and ‘shopping’ trips.

Testimonies

Un grand merci pour votre email. Le feed-back de Phuong Lam après 2 semaines à Moreton Hall est très positif que je peux résumer par sa question : "est-ce que je peux rester 1 mois là-bas pour l'été prochain?" Merci pour votre équipe :-)
