Our Winter School offers students a fun and interactive way to learn English and about British culture.
Visiting London in winter is a magical and memorable experience you will never forget. The weather during winter in London will be a bit cold and rainy, but that shouldn't stop anyone! That's London's charm.
The winter months are December to February, but the cold weather can stretch all the way to March!
Samuel Johnson said in 1777, "when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life."
|London - England's capital city|
|People settled here over 2000 years ago and gave London its rich and diverse history. In London visitors can see ancient buildings next to modern architecture. There is history everywhere you look!|
|A visitor's delight - London's famous landmarks|
To mention a few: The London Eye was built to celebrate the millennium and was opened to the public in 2000. Buckingham Palace is both the office and official London residence of Her Majesty the Queen and visitors can experience ceremonial traditions at the Palace with the Changing of the Guard. The Tower of London founded in 1066 by William the Conqueror the Tower fascinates with its dark history. The Houses of Parliament (Palace of Westminster) is perhaps one of London’s most recognised landmarks and is also home to ‘Big Ben’; and then there are famous places of worship, famous markets, amazing world renounced museums and galleries and parks (40% of the city is a green space, making London the greenest city of its size in the world).
Overall London is an impressive city that won’t fail to wow visitors with its grandeur, attractions, views and multi-cultural vibe.

Students aged 16 and 17 are enrolled on our English language courses for adults and do not have any special supervision. However, we do have additional and very important rules for them.
These special rules are explained at the first day induction and are in our Code of Conduct for Under 18s that the student must sign, and also our Parental Consent Form that both the parents and student must sign. The students will also have a meeting every week with the welfare officer.
Below are some of the ways in which we safeguard 16 and 17 year olds:

If they are more than 30 min late without contacting their homestay, the homestay will contact the school and the school will try to locate the student. The parents/legal guardians will be contacted immediately.
