Liverpool School of English International Summer School: An English and Culture Course for 10-17 year olds

Here at Liverpool School of English we are enormously proud of our international summer school. This course combines communicative English lessons with cultural activities and excursions. Our students are therefore able to develop and practise their English language skills while experiencing British life and culture and making new, international friendships.

We are very proud of our nationality mix at our international junior summer school. During July and August 2019 we welcomed students from 20 different countries.

Welfare and Safety

We are committed to providing a high standard of welfare so that our students have an educational and enjoyable time at Liverpool School of English. The student is at the heart of everything we do and we want our students to feel listened to and be treated as individuals. We have appropriate and efficient welfare systems and it is our first priority to ensure our students and group leaders are safe, happy and comfortable.

There is a Welfare Team located at each of our summer school sites. The role of our Welfare Team is to ensure that all of the students are healthy, happy and safe during their stay and to provide a clear point of contact for all welfare issues. All students meet our Welfare Team on their first day.

It is compulsory for all students to have health and travel insurance before leaving their home country. Liverpool School of English is working in partnership with Endsleigh,nto provide our students with a policy which has been specifically designed to meet your requirements whilst you are studying in the UK. We strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance at the time of booking the trip as cover will commence for pre-departure cancellation from the date accepted for cover. This will, therefore, provide cover should the trip have to be cancelled for an insured reason such as illness or serious accident preventing travel. If international student travel insurance has not been requested through Liverpool School of English, students must arrange their own suitable travel insurance and travel with all relevant policy documents upon arrival to the UK.


Residence accommodation (available for groups aged 10-17) is a popular option for groups who want to live in the city centre. We work closely with a number of residence providers to ensure your accommodation is comfortable, well managed and secure. All residences are no more than 10 minutes’ walk from the college buildings. All rooms are single and ensuite.

Homestay Accommodation (available for groups aged 12-17) is suitable for those students who want to experience life in a British home by staying with a friendly host. You can eat, sleep and breathe the new culture as part of a totally immersive experience. Your hosts provide a welcoming environment, support your learning and offer an authentic window into their culture. Staying with a host offers a relaxed fun yet intensive approach to language learning.


We work closely with the catering team to ensure we provide nutritious meals for our students, group leaders and staff. Our summer school programme is busy and active so our students need good quality food which is healthy and varied.
