Summer camps and homestay (host family) courses are perfect ways for junior students to study English and enjoy an exciting summer holiday at the same time. Churchill House Summer Centres have been organising English vacation courses for students aged between 10 and 17 for over a decade now. We have used this experience to help create summer programmes that combine a carefully balanced mixture of high quality English lessons, engaging activities and inspiring excursions. With locations throughout England and the UK, students are able to experience so much of what our great country has to offer and all at a reasonable price. Please select any of the options below to find out more about the classes, activities and experiences available at each of our summer centres.

News! Our British Council Inspection Result

This makes us one of the highest-scoring summer school companies under the new accreditation scheme, which independently judges how well schools meet the high standards set by the British Council. This is a great result and we would like to thank all our customers and staff for making 2014 such a good year - we worked very hard to deliver this result and now we're working on improving for summer 2015!
