SBC at Eton College
Summer Boarding Courses at Eton College provides our students with the opportunity to study at one of the world’s most famous schools. Founded in 1440 by King Henry VI, Eton College has educated 20 British Prime Ministers as well as numerous authors, scientists, actors, Olympians and explorers. The historic and prestigious venue offers a truly inspiring learning environment for our students to study a variety of exciting courses. Close to London, Eton College provides the perfect location for a summer school experience.
The quality of teachers, staff, academic program, social environment combined with an opportunity to be independent, all at a college of great repute made these two weeks a fantastic experience for our teenage daughter! We would highly recommend it.
The English Through Academic Subjects programme at SBC at Eton College is specifically designed for 12-to 16-year-old students and aims to improve their level of English. Students receive 15 hours of tuition per week in their chosen subject, culminating in a Time to Shine presentation. This gives students the opportunity to use their English and demonstrate their learning whilst developing their presentation skills. The Time to Shine presentations take place in Jafar Hall, Eton College’s purpose-built debating chamber – giving students a truly memorable experience. All classes are multi-national, with a maximum of 15 students per class.
All students will be given access to a cutting-edge online learning platform, EtonX, and will be able to choose one of the self-study ‘Future Skills Programmes’. This is a series of short online courses focused on better communication, leadership, and university preparation which develop soft skills, practical skills and an entrepreneurial mindset to help students succeed in life.
