English Summer Courses

English Language learning and personal development for juniors - children and teenagers 7 - 17


At ECS - English Country Schools - we create a very special learning environment for the young people in our care. We organise professional, British Council Accredited summer courses during which juniors - children and teenagers - learn a lot of English. They have fun, make new international friendships, broaden their horizons and increase their self-confidence.

Situated in beautiful countryside just two hours from London, Port Regis provides a safe, healthy summer boarding location for 7 - 17 year olds to enjoy a variety of supervised sports and activities with many interesting places to visit in the locality.

On our English summer courses for juniors we divide pupils into two age groups - children and teenagers - in order to provide best for the needs of every child. Each age group has an excellent nationality mix and separate English lessons, activity programme, excursions and boarding accommodation. 

Our innovative English Language programme gives pupils the best possible chance to learn and develop their English. They continue this outside class by mixing together during sports, social activities and excursions and on our adventure camp. In this way we aim to make every part of the day an opportunity for Real Learning.

Sarah and I live at Port Regis during the summer to directly oversee the smooth running of the summer courses. We have been organising summer courses for over 30 years. As parents and experienced educators we understand the concern you feel for your child. We aim to provide the highest levels of care. Contact us whenever you want and we will deal with you personally and directly.

Children and teenagers return healthy and refreshed from our summer boarding courses, with new life skills, ready to return to their studies with renewed enthusiasm and determination.

We look forward to welcoming you to ECS.
