Residential Centre

Kingswood School is an amazing boarding school with fantastic facilities for learning, sports and other activities. The school opened in Bath in 1852 and is one of the best independent schools in the UK today. Bath today is a busy city with 1⁄4 million visitors each year and a large student population, all enjoying the museums, shops and cafes in the city centre.

  • 20 hours (26 lessons) each week in international classesocus on speaking, listening, pronunciation and British culture
  • English in Action project work and life skills development
  • Dedicated programme for Young Learners (aged 8-11)
  • FREE FCE Exam Preparation, 2.5 hours per week

 

 

Performances

 

These include a variety of drama and role-playing sketches and presentations, which students usually perform in front of the whole school on the last afternoon of the week.

 

They are a lot of fun, but there is also a high academic focus that tests students’ pronunciation, intonation and clarity of speech, and also helps to improve students’ confidence in speaking.

 

English in Action

 

Students and teachers work together to choose a weekly project topic for their class and then plan it together. Students are given help with vocabulary and strategies for how to complete their work. During one of the morning classes students go into town to complete the English in Action research component of their project, discreetly supervised by their teacher. Students can carry out a survey, use a questionnaire, interview people on the street, and then add this information to their project. They present their work to the rest of the class on the last day of the week.

 

English in Action is an excellent way of encouraging students to use their language skills in real-life situations and of bringing them into contact with native English speakers.
