Our Story

Located in beautiful parkland, just 30 minutes from Central London, Mill Hill Summer School provides the perfect setting for learning and enjoyment.

Our courses are aimed both at students who will be joining British Boarding Schools and at those who wish to sample British education in
the summer.

We offer courses for students aged 12-17, combining English learning with other subjects, including mathematics and science or sport. These core elements are complemented by a varied programme of Creative activity classes including music, drama, IT, film-making and art.

The Mill Hill Summer School timetable comprises 15 hours of English per week, with a further 15 hours per week divided equally between science and maths classes or sport on the one hand and creative activity classes, such as making music, art, drama and IT on the other.

Courses last either 2, 4 or 8 weeks and enable young learners to consolidate their knowledge
of academic English, whilst gaining an insight into life in a British boarding school.

There is a placement test on arrival to establish English levels. These levels along with the age and nationality of our students will be given consideration when dividing them in to classes. The maximum class size is 12 students and lessons take place in the newly refurbished campus of The Mount, Mill Hill International.

The science and mathematics classes combine the learning of subject specific vocabulary with
practical experiments in well equipped laboratories.

Creative activity classes complement the more formal English lessons, encouraging speaking and listening through drama, music, IT, art and film-making, as well as building confidence and developing self expression.

All pupils are presented with a full academic report including CEFR language grade and course certificate.

A lively programme of sports and social activities ensures that students are occupied and entertained each evening, with sports-based activities and a range of social activities such as talent show, British Quiz, disco and film night.

Students opting for the English Plus programme participate in 90 minutes of sports activities each day, choosing from football, swimming, basketball, fintess, tennis,badminton, table tennis, croquet, dance,ultimate frisbee, aerobics and volleyball. Students on the Intensive Academic programme benefit from the evening sports on offer each week.

Each week there are two full-day excursions, one to nearby London and the other to attractive destinations such as Brighton, Oxford Cambridge, Stratford-Upon-Avon and the Harry Potter Studio Tour. All visits are led and supervised by our staff,with students aged 12-14 accompanied at all times, whilst those aged 15-17 are given the opportunity to have short periods of unsupervised time to encourage them to immerse themselves in their surroundings. Sightseeing, cultural visits and even shopping provide contexts within which speaking and listening skills are put to the test; they are also great fun and provide memories to last a lifetime.

The safety and well-being of our students is our key priority and all staff, from the Course Director to the English Teachers and Activity Leaders, play their part in ensuring their welfare. Some of our staff have first aid training, and where necessary students are taken to the local doctor or hospital for medical treatment, in the unlikely event that this is required.

Students are accommodated in comfortable single, twin and triple rooms in one of the Schoolโ€™s boarding houses, with separate sections for girls and boys and with a shared common room with television, games and DVD player. Boys and girls may not enter each otherโ€™s boarding sections or bedrooms. There is an appropriate level of supervision in the boarding house, which is comfortable and homely. The boarding school experience, whether for 2, 4 or 8 weeks, is a great lesson in independence and co-operation for all students, and also an ideal preparation for those planning to continue their education in a British boarding school.

The course includes return transfers from any of the airports marked on this map, or from London St Pancras Station. Parents wishing to bring students directly to the Summer School will find Mill Hill very accessible. Despite its rural setting, Mill Hill is within easy reach of Central London, being served by bus, underground an overground train services. Close to the M1, M25 and A1(M), it is within easy driving distance of all London airports.
