Stonyhurst Language School was founded in 2012. The school is owned by Stonyhurst College which is the oldest Jesuit school in the world, founded in 1593. Stonyhurst College, famous for its connections to authors Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ('Sherlock Holmes') and J R R Tolkien ('Lord of the Rings') is set in 1,000 acres of Britain's most beautiful countryside. The campus facilities include a 25m swimming pool, indoor tennis dome, outdoor tennis courts, rugby, football and cricket pitches. Situated in the North West of England, Stonyhurst College is in the Ribble Valley, which is one of the Queen's favourite places in England. The College is just one hour's drive from Manchester and Liverpool airports. The famous Lake District is also just one hour's drive away and the seaside resort of Blackpool is close by. The Language School's English course is designed to challenge students, aged between 10-16 years old, to advance their understanding of English, improve their language skills and increase their confidence in using newly-acquired linguistic skills in interesting and enjoyable ways. With five teaching levels, from elementary to advanced, we assess every student at the start of each course, assign them to a small class of students with a similar proficiency in English, continuously monitor their progress and tailor our teaching accordingly. Students learn new grammar and vocabulary and have the opportunity to practice these in reading exercises, written work, and through listening and speaking practice. Our range of teaching methods includes group work, role play, games, surveys, presentations, quizzes, interviews, talks and workshops, as well as educational excursions. Stonyhurst directly employs all the summer school staff. We are fully committed to the enjoyment, education and well-being of every student in our care. All our teachers are qualified to teach English as a second language and they work hand in hand with our skilled and capable activities staff to give the children a fun and meaningful learning holiday.
