We hand-pick our Host Families, visiting their OUR homes and ensuring that they have up-to-date police checks. We try and make the best possible HOST FAMILIES matches between students and families to ensure that they all have a great summer experience. Many of our Host Families have children of their own whilst others have grown-up children who live away from home. Either way the Host Parents are welcoming and children staying with them are made to feel welcome and comfortable. During the week students have breakfast with the Host Family before they leave for school. Some Host Families drive the children to The Lady Elizabeth School and others use the bus service. Families provide the students with a snack and a drink for break time and lunch is provided by the school. The evening meal is had with the Host Family and on many occasions Host Families get together with other families to have BBQs or social gatherings where students can see their friends from school. We offer 24-hour assistance and pastoral care for our families and the students staying with them. We know and trust our families and the best testimonials that we have are that students want to repeat with the same family year after year.
A fabulous addition to Summer School 2020 is our wonderful Boarding House Facility which is situated within 30 minutes of The Lady Elizabeth School. House Parents will care for a small number of children aged from 12 to 17 years from different countries around the world. A bus will transport students to and from school each morning and afternoon and in the evenings there will be activities organised by the House Parents. The Boarding Facility has a large pool, a table tennis table, large community areas and is beautifully furnished. Meals will be prepared by the House Parents and all students will eat together in the dining area. On Saturday boarders will go with other students, staying with Host Families, to one of the theme parks BOARDING HOUSE in Benidorm. On Sunday they will go on cultural trips to FACILITY Valencia or Alicante, or go to the beach to participate in one of the great outdoor activities in the local area. Students will have an unforgettable experience staying in the Boarding House and will make lasting friendships with students from all around the world.

ACADEMIC PROGRAMME SUMMER SCHOOL 2020
ENGLISH LANGUAGE Students sit an English examination upon arrival at Summer School and are put into groups based on the exam result. There are generally four levels, Beginner, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate and Advanced. Special consideration is given to students who are looking at passing a Cambridge or equivalent exam and they are put into a class with others who have the same aim. English is taught in a relaxed environment with a lot of emphasis on speaking activities. Students work in pairs or small groups to build confidence and fluency in real life scenarios. They develop skills in thinking, reading, writing, listening and speaking in English. Class sizes are small so that teachers are able to give students individual support and help during the lessons. Group activities include University Challenge, Running Dictations, Quizzes, Student Presentations and Debates. These activities encourage students to work in teams and to have fun whilst learning.

Students will study the composition of photos and look at ways of enhancing their own work using different programs such as Photoshop and Lightroom.

They will also learn about food preparation and presentation with each two-week course finishing with a Master Chef competition. • Whilst learning how to cook, students will also learn about nutrition, healthy options and the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle. • As part of the course students will visit local markets and supermarkets to choose ingredients for their competition. The idea is to make it a lot of fun but it is also about learning English and how to cook!

Their chance to shine will come at the end of the course when their work is displayed for parents and other students @SUMMER SCHOOL to see. They will have the choice of different mediums and will work on one major piece to take home with them. There is nothing nicer for artistic and creative people to spend time with like-minded people pottering in an art room.

Over the two week period they will manage their own project and enjoy seeing the final outcome. Children love to create and there is nothing more satisfying than working on a project from start to finish.
Some students like to try a combination of activities and don’t want to focus on just one. For that reason we offer English combined with multi- ENGLISH & MULTI-ACTIVITIES activities. Students will do four lessons of English per day and four activities. The activities include: • Sport & Games • Cooking • Art • Performing Arts • Swimming • Robotics
