Boarding School Experience 2021

The King William's College Boarding School Experience, during the summer term, provides intensive English tuition, with a range of other academic subjects, and total immersion into the School community. This will be complemented by a full leisure programme of sports, activities and excursions.

This unique course provides an opportunity for students aged 13 to 16 to join a fully functioning school. It is designed to empower students to taste boarding school life and discover if they would enjoy studying away from home longer term. The course will run for three weeks in June (dates to be confirmed). Places are limited.

Each student will have approximately 35 hours English tuition over the course, which will aim to:

Our Boarding School Experience is suitable for students who are preparing for IGCSEs, A levels or the IB Diploma, or are thinking of entering a British boarding school, or looking for an interesting and rewarding holiday, whilst improving their English.

In the first week students will attend English lessons in the mornings, followed by activities in the afternoon. In the second and third week the students will be integrated into regular subject lessons with our current students, according to their age and ability.

"I enjoyed going to the subject classes with the other pupils. I met some wonderful people."

"I had the most amazing time of my life, I met some wonderful people. I learnt new things about the British culture and some grammar. The teachers were all really open and kind to everyone, always ready to make us feel at home. I would totally recommend King William's College; it's an extraordinary place."

"I saw the life of a boarding student and it's really cool. The students are like a family and they help each other. They are all so friendly and they really want you to feel good."

"My son enjoyed spending three weeks in the College, meeting good friends, speaking with teachers who were very available to students, learning English and having fun during the weekend. Thank you."

I loved King William’s College from the start. I made up my mind within an hour of our time there that I wanted my son to attend. You have to come to College to understand what makes it stand out from the rest. It is a place of genuinely caring and friendly people. Another aspect of College we love is its vast international community. Our son has made some great friends and as a result has come to appreciate and respect other cultures and traditions. Our son loves College. He loves the independence to make choices, the easy access he has to his tutors, the opportunity to make his own mistakes and learn from them, but most of all, he loves the fact that expert assistance is always a breath away.
