Holidays in English College
Horsham - West Sussex
For Children aged 11 to 17 years old
Christ College , located in Horsham in the South of England, is the College we chose because of its charm and rich history. It would be just enough to stroll around in the grounds and walk down its corridors to go back in time.
Christ College’s motto “A School Like no Other“ has become our own the moment we chose the prestigious school as our base in the UK. It is Approved by The British Council, it is a member of “ ENGLISH UK “ and its courses of English, designed for small classes, pave the way to the Trinity Exams.
During the stay students will be able to practise various sports, tailor made evenings of leisure will be organised, and two day trips to London and one to Brighton are in the agenda.
All activities are directly organised and run by the English local staff in close collaboration with our own group leaders. An Italian Doctor will be on site for the duration of the stay.
To master the English language has become an essential qualification for our children’ s lives, future and careers and we have been focusing on it in the past 45 years by constantly working on the high standards of the courses we provide.
