It is our goal that each student in our programme feels valued, appreciated and included regardless of their gender, age, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or any disability. As part of this, we seek to promote respect and tolerance and to teach critical thinking skills as courses abroad can be instrumental in helping young people see the world in a different light.
As individual students can feel especially vulnerable, each individual student is assigned to an activity leader who is responsible for ensuring the student is being integrated into the programme, making friends, taking care of themselves and enjoying their time with us. Our individual students are all accommodated together in one house so they can get to know each other more easily and we have an increased number of activity leaders in the house.
Two dedicated Student Welfare Managers and residential staff are responsible for supervising students throughout the day, during all activities, excursions and at night in the boarding houses. Additionally, the General Manager has a 24-hour emergency contact number during the six-week summer school.
