We offer overseas students (aged 14-17) an opportunity to participate in a series of fun and exciting academic challenges in history, drama, maths, creative arts and more. Experience life at Wells, a UK boarding school based in a stunning location with beautiful historic buildings and an impressive range of academic and sports facilities.
We recommend that participants must be at least a B1 on the CEFR (preferably B2).
You’ll see what Bath is a city so beautiful and special that it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. A trip to Bath wouldn’t be complete without looking around the historic Roman Baths.
If ever there was a city with a story to tell, it’s Bristol. Enveloped in the hills of South West England, it has its own unmistakable identity, grounded in roots from centuries past and carved out since by passionate locals and spirited fans. See it for yourself along with a trip to the fascinating At-Bristol Science Centre.
Put your outdoor education challenge to the test with an overnight camping trip!
One of the highlights of the summer school will be the formal Gala Dinner at the end. We will award certificates for the winner of each challenge and name the overall winner who will receive free EAL support for a year at Wells.
