Academic Summer offers a high-quality real taste of the UK education system and curriculum. We prepare students for primary, GCSE, IB and A-Level study and Get Ready for Medicine give students a challenging and inspiring academic experience in July and August. We welcome international and British students aged 7 to 17 and most students come for a two-week camp although some stay for up to six weeks.
Academic Summer camps are located at Sidcot School near Bristol, DLD College in the heart of London and Queen’s College Taunton in the Southwest of England.

Students are placed into classes by their ages and we have three streams:
Adventurers aged 7 to 12
Academic Juniors is a challenging and fun-packed learning experience for young learners. Young adventurers learn English, maths, sciences, social studies and arts. Lessons, trips and activities all fit around a weekly theme bringing everything to life.
Explorers aged 12/13 to 14
Explorers study English, mathematics, science, social studies and arts, they develop their IT skills, language and study skills. This is aimed at students preparing for years 9 and 10 in the UK system (GCSE) and helps them to explore different subject areas giving them a broad curriculum.
Engagers aged 15 to 17
Students engage and specialise in the subjects they want to study depending on their academic needs and interests. Academic Summer writes the timetable around student choices and students each have an individual timetable. They offer specialist camps: Get Ready for Medicine, Get Ready for IELTS and Get Ready for Computer Science.
