Royal Russell School, Croydon, Surrey
Her Majesty the Queen is the patron of the school and she has visited the school on a number of occasions.
It is situated in an 'oasis' of green and yet is only minutes from central Croydon with very easy access to central London (20 mins by train) and its world famous attractions. With large playing fields and a university style campus atmosphere the school is a wonderful environment for a summer vacation English Language course.
Croydon has lots of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities and provides very easy access to London by rail or bus, as well as the two major London airports - Gatwick (30 minutes) and Heathrow (60 minutes).
Royal Russell has 4 accommodation blocks separated into girls and boys houses. Some rooms have ensuite facilities although most use shared bathroom facilities. All the rooms are modern and furnished as study bedrooms. We encourage students to mix with other nationalities in shared rooms and for younger students coming alone the multi-bedded rooms are the best way to make friends and have fun. Children are supervised in the accommodation blocks and there is a ‘houseperson' on duty at all times to look after the students' welfare.
All meals are provided by the college in the spacious and characteristic dining hall. There is a wide variety on offer on the menu from traditional ‘fish & chips' to pasta. The food is fresh and tasty and there is a wonderful salad bar too. We can cater for all dietary needs including vegetarian and halal.
The school’s proximity to London makes it the perfect location for those wishing to spend time in the country’s capital including the Big Red Bus Tour to see London by night. In addition to the excursions of the standard weekly activity programme, additional excursions into London are easily arranged to see some of the City’s many attractions.
