Our professional and dedicated English language teachers use a customised curriculum based on the CLIL approach used in top schools worldwide. Practising communication, reading and writing skills, students will put their learning into context, creating press releases, writing articles, conducting player interviews and researching sports-related media. An entry test groups students by age and ability at the start of the week. With an average of 12 students per class, students get excellent individual feedback.
Immersing themselves in this English football environment enables players to rapidly develop new skills and confidence in English and football. Gaining an insight into the professional game and what they need to continue advancing their skills, players leave with a report from their coach and their English teacher as well as a certificate to take home.
The camp is based at Lancing College, a leading private school on the south coast of England just 15 minutes from Brighton. The school is set in extensive grounds with panoramic views out to the sea and has a long history of sporting and academic excellence. Facilities include a 25m swimming pool, grass and astro football pitches, tennis courts and an indoor sports hall.
