Taunton School - Pre-Sessional Summer School

Pre-Sessional Summer School

Organisation: Taunton School
Location: Somerset
Ages: 14 to 17
Start dates: 23 August 2020
Duration: 12 Days,
Accommodation: School boarding house - shared rooms
Fees: 12 Days: £1,600

These 10-day courses are designed to provide that all important boost for international students before joining a GCSE, A Level or IB (International Baccalaureate) Diploma programme in the UK.

For many international students, particularly for those whose proficiency in English is not as high as might be desired, it can be a very daunting task stepping into a British independent boarding school for the first time.  Without the necessary linguistic skills and cultural awareness, getting off to a flying start can be extremely challenging.

By attending one of our pre-sessional courses, not only are students able to improve their proficiency in English, but they are also able to develop key academic skills which will equip them well for their onward educational journey.

Pre-sessional courses run for 10 days, in maximum class sizes of 12, with three hours of intensive academic English each morning, followed by two hours of other academic preparation, including lessons, lectures and workshops focusing on the following areas:

                Acquiring, recording and learning new vocabulary

                Increasing effectiveness in listening skills

                Improving academic writing skills (including extended essay writing support)

                Developing reading techniques, such as skimming and scanning

                Effective pronunciation, enunciation and debating

                Understanding the meta language of examination papers

                Broadening study skills and getting the most out of your revision

                Wellbeing and dealing with examination stress

                Answering examination questions in full

Students are also expected to complete set assignments during the evenings in order to maximise the effectiveness of these courses.

Upon completion of one of our pre-sessional courses, students are far more focused, prepared and able to cope with the demands of the GCSE, A Level or IB programme they will move on to, enabling them to hit the ground running and providing them with the necessary academic skills to make the most of their education in the UK.
