Concord College is an established international boarding school which, as well as providing the highest quality education for students from all over the world, have also been running summer courses for over 30 years.
The word ‘concord’ means harmony and it is a fantastic opportunity for young people from all over the world to live and study together on campus and to experience other languages and cultures.
Throughout the years thousands of boys and girls from all over the world have attended our courses. The students, from very diverse cultures, religions and creeds, live and study together in harmony and make long-lasting friendships. Many students return for several years to meet up with friends made on previous courses and we have children and even grandchildren of former students attending.
The aims of a Concord College summer course are:
To build students’ confidence in their own abilities;
To improve students’ skills in English, including reading, writing, speaking and listening and/or to complement and increase their understanding of Science, Maths and Economics;
To provide opportunities for students to find self-worth and enjoy their academic experience through a wide range of enrichment activities;
To enable students to see something of Britain and the British way of life;
To meet and make friends with young people from many different countries and enhance their intercultural understanding for international harmony;
To provide students a safe and caring environment.
The courses are constructed carefully to give each student the opportunity to study a full English or Science, Maths and Economics course and, with the addition of a wide range of sporting and social activities available, there is so much to enjoy and see.
Trips and Excursions
We have many excursions during the summer courses. Every week there are two trips for all students to enjoy along with additional optional trips that students can sign up for. These trips can be to local towns, cities or places of interest.
On Wednesday afternoons there is a half day excursion to the local towns of Shrewsbury or Telford. At the weekend the students attend a full day excursion to places such as Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Chester or Liverpool. The locations of our excursions may change throughout the course in response to information shared by our national security forces.
There are various additional optional trips arranged such as a visit to the university cities of Cambridge or Oxford or William Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-Upon-Avon. All students enjoy a full day at a Theme Park such as Alton Towers or Drayton Manor. We also arrange optional theatre trips, museum visits and heritage trips for example to Severn Valley Railway.
