At our LISS Liverpool Summer School we aim to provide an educational and enjoyable all-round learning experience and a valuable insight into British life and culture. We have a fantastic nationality mix at the school so students get to meet and learn with other juniors from all around the world. All of our summer schools are British Council accredited for the teaching of English so you are guaranteed high quality.
We offer 15 or 21 lesson courses at the summer school. We have international classes of no more than 15 students in any class. Our teachers use a diverse range of teaching methods, including interactive technology to deliver communicative lessons. Our lessons are designed to develop reading, listening, speaking and writing skills – functional English that students can use both in and out of the classroom. Our students are all provided with a learning journal to keep a record of vocabulary, classwork, individual progress and details of their experiences on activities and excursions.
Accommodation and Catering
Your group can choose homestay or residential accommodation:
Our summer school residences offer en-suite facilities and are within walking distance of the school. All rooms are furnished with a bed, desk, chair and wardrobe or chest of drawers. Bathrooms will come furnished with a toilet, basin, shower and mirror. Students will share flats of 3-7 bedrooms. A specific residence building’s name will be provided in April/May when we send you a residence profile with the specific residence’s information, pictures and directions to the school. We employ dedicated welfare staff for a high level of student supervision.
Staying with a host is a great way for students to fully immerse themselves in the British culture and language. We have over 150 hosts around the city and all junior students always stay in pairs or triples with other junior students. We provide homestay students with a travel pass to get to and from the school.
The summer school package includes a full programme of afternoon activities, evening activities and full day excursions. For safeguarding purposes only residential students do evening activities and homestay student return to their hosts after the afternoon activity.

Please send your requirements to our Groups Team who will be happy to give you a quote for the summer school.
Please note that our summer schools are for groups (10+ students) only. All junior groups must be accompanied by a group leader. We offer a free group leader place for every 10 students.
Is there a deadline for booking?
Yes, this year we need to receive all bookings by 15th April. By this date, we require all of our application forms/documents to be completed and sent.
My student is 18 but he/she is still at high school. Is this OK?
Unfortunately not as we cannot mix junior students with adult students. This is for safeguarding purposes, and is necessary in order to keep in line with our British Council accreditation.
Will students be provided with towels and bedding?
Yes, students will be provided with a towel and bedding.
Can my group split between homestay and residence?
No, this is not a suitable option because students who stay with a host family are on a different programme to those in residence. For safety and supervision reasons, all students must be on the same programme.
Can I bring another group leader? Are any fees incurred for this?
One free group leader space will be provided for every 10 students. An extra group leader place may be offered (by the school’s discretion) for a supplementary fee.
