Junior Summer School
A one-week summer experience for bright thirteen- and fourteen-year-olds.
This course is designed to inspire exceptional young teenagers, challenging students beyond the school curriculum with world-class teachers in a fun environment in beautiful historical Normandy.
The course will cover Maths, History and French and will be taught in very small groups (maximum four students). Students will also be introduced to Philosophy and Economics by professors from the University of Oxford and from Ivy League Colleges in the United States. They will also participate in Politics workshops with our special guest, one of Britains most high-profile politicians. Finally, there will be training in critical thinking, a much-neglected and critically important element of any education.
There will be plenty of fun too! We have a lovely heated swimming pool (with lifeguard), five-a-side soccer, a barbecue night, a movie night, lunch in the medieval city of Bayeux, and a picnic at Omaha Beach.
Please read on for more details, below.
This is optional, and is taught in pairs or triplets (or even individually), depending on the ability-level of each student.
This eight-day programme costs £965.30 and it includes all tuition, academic materials, meals and snacks, shared accommodation in our eighteen century château (with shared en-suite facilities), use of the château’s heated swimming pool, tennis court and other facilities, and excursions to Bayeux and Omaha Beach.
From Monday, 12th August to Monday, 19th August.
