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.

One of the special things about our junior programme at Sidcot School is the integration with local children. Sidcot run a holiday club called Shipmates for local UK families.

The youngest children are taught at the ICS Primary School, close to Baker Street Tube Station. For nursery aged children, age 3-4, the focus is on creative and play-based learning and the development of communication and social skills. As well as using song, dance, art and construction, children also use drama and music sessions to improve language skills. Learners from 5-6 years old are encouraged to work collaboratively through project-led activities. New information is researched by using books, computers and iPads to improve language and communication skills. Older children, age 8-9, take part in exciting discovery-led activities, with a focus on communication skills such as reading and writing.
