Tafira Summer Camp 2019


Dear parent,

Every July we offer a fabulous opportunity for your children to be immersed in English whilst having fun and enjoying the companionship of new friends in a safe and caring learning environment. Our aim is to help all children improve their mastery of the English language in all of its forms; speaking, listening, reading and writing whether they are 3 or 16 years old.

Each day is filled with numerous learning opportunities and fun activities at our Tafira site, a bucolic setting with privileged views of Bandama and surrounding hills.

At least half of the time is spent in classrooms with qualified English teachers who will help the children gain confidence and fluency in their understanding and speaking of English. Some formal grammar lessons are punctuated with dramatic role plays, quizzes and thematic topic work, all in the target language of English.

The rest of the time is devoted to full sporting & creative activities and trips away from the centre (including horse riding); all taught and supervised through the target language of English.

The programme of activities for 2019 is in the process of being finalised and will be published here in due course but may include cooking, performing arts, art & crafts, fitness & wellbeing among other things.

Students enjoy our quality 'home-cooked' lunches, which are included in the price, in our modern dining facilities. Teachers supervise the children's lunch, encouraging them to practice their spoken English in this less formal setting. Picnic lunches are provided for excursions (if applicable).

Starting on Monday 1st July and finishing on Friday 26th July 2019, our summer camp runs for 4 weeks in total, from 09.00 to 15.30hrs. You may elect to enrol for the entire course or part thereof depending on your personal plans for the holiday period. We also have an optional early drop-off service from 07.30 for a small additional fee.

We have a school bus service that is available on request (and subject to separate fees) that caters for most areas of the city. Further details can be found by following the link below (please note this timetable is subject to changes).

If you have any questions or would like to visit our school to see the facilities and obtain more information, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to make arrangements.
