Glenalmond College could tempt you with our onsite golf course, 300 acres of perfect grounds, incredibly well maintained by staff. We could tempt you by the thought of spending your evenings outdoors, toasting marshmallows over a camp fire in our forest, or making pizza in our pizza ovens. There is a lot there to tempt you. But, you might prefer horse riding, aqua-zorbing, kayaking or just simply drawing a picture in a room filled with music, and that is just fine as there is plenty of time for that too.
Each student, as we have discussed, comes as an individual and so had their own tastes, likes and wants. Each student should choose the school that is right for them.
So, who should choose Glenalmond College Language School?
Students who know that they have many choices and can decide what they want to do, but they know that they and their future friends they will make at summer camp, will do something. There is no room for passivity, there is little time for staying in rooms. There is a lot of time to discover the school, make new friends and thunder through the grounds on a treasure hunt, created by Daniel, one of our teachers.
Our students, certainly the ones who return to us year after year, they know that we are a community. We all work to the same schedule and we all eat together, play together and learn together. We are the balance between summer and school. The corridors are filled with laughter, sometimes too loud and sometimes just a faint giggle, but it is the overarching heartbeat of our summer school.
Parents who wonder if this school would fit their children should consider; do they want to get involved? Are they happy to live as a team? Do they want to make new friends and memories to last a lifetime? *
The students who have been with us for summer in previous years, come to us usually shyly… after one or sometimes two days they have made new friends and are into everything; house drama, arts and crafts, excursions, lessons, baking, discos and the beloved tuck shop, to name a few elements.
Our summer school is unique, just like each student. It’s a feeling the student has when they arrive. The same feeling we had as kids. The excitement, the unknown, the joy! We know that feeling and we nurture it.
Glenalmond College is the school of choice, and of choices. Choose us and your students will make those memories, guaranteed.
*all memories will be made in English!!
We are English language experts. We think about English and the teaching of English, we implement that in our school. The BLISSful blog is an insight into English language summer schools and why we are different.
