Boarding School Experience 2017

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 for 2017 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 from Wednesday 7th June to Tuesday 27th June. Place numbers are limited.

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 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."

Our son has been at King William’s College for two years and has settled in very well with the full support of the boarding staff and teachers, who have demonstrated great kindness and caring. The highly disciplined, but dynamic education system has helped our 15 year old son to adapt well and his confidence has noticeably improved in a short space of time. What's especially pleasing is that not only does the College have an excellent calibre of teaching staff and a strong academic curriculum, but we have been surprised and delighted to discover their excellent music achievements! With such great experience, our second son will also join KWC starting at Lower 5, to have a well rounded education. We cannot be more pleased with our decision to send our sons here all the way from Hong Kong!
