Bianca, age 15 from Italy
Bianca, age 15 from Italy "My name is Bianca, I'm 15 and I come from Bologna in Italy. I stayed at Sidcot school for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed every second of my experience. I met wonderful, talented and inspiring people from all over the world who helped me grow as individual and who I will always remember. My classes were absolutely amazing, as they helped me improve my English and my academic work ethics. The trips we had were all very fun and very informative and the afternoon activities allowed us to explore new sports, like archery and water zorbing. I would recommend the Academic Summer programme to absolutely anyone who is looking for a programme to improve their English and open their minds. I can't wait to be back next year."
Henriette, age 15 from Germany
Henriette, age 15 from Germany "I really like my time here. One of the best parts was that we had really nice people and everyone got along with each other very well and made a lot of new friends. The time in the boarding house was also nice because we all held together and made good relationships. The programme we had was always interesting and funny. It was good that we did so many activities for the team building because probably this helped as well getting to know each other better. Not only the activities were interesting, but the lessons as well. We learned a lot of interesting things and everyone was involved in the lessons. Because there were so many different nationalities, we mainly spoke English, and I improved my English a lot in a short time. For those of us who are going to study in a boarding school in England (like me), we learned a lot about the life in a boarding school, so when the school starts we know how it is going to be. All in all, I only had a good experience and I will always remember my time in here, which I spent with really good friends."

Tomasso, age16 from Italy

"I was a little sceptical before coming to Academic Summer but as soon as I got here I was welcomed by an amazing staff that immediately made me feel like at home. This year I struggled with some of my classes, but thanks to Academic summer I am able to study and revise and better understand various subjects. Academic Summer offers students some amazing activities which help us bond together and build leadership skills as well as how to work in a team. I am extremely happy that I was able to come here and I am sure that this experience will help me through my entire career and that I will carry every memory of Sidcot school for the rest of my life. Academic Summer is a great place to meet new people, have fun and also study and improve at school and I highly recommend it to everyone."

Dimitra, age 15 from Greece
Dimitra, age 15 from Greece "My name is Demi and I am 15 years old. I have stayed in Academic Summer for three weeks and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I did not only improve my English skills, but it also gave me the confidence to have a conversation with native speakers of English. I found new friends from all over the world. The teachers planned the lessons so that they were not only educational but also fun. On the trips we had a lot of free time, so we could buy many souvenirs. I really enjoyed Academic Summer and I readily would come again to Sidcot."
Aminah, age 14 from Albania
Aminah, age 14 from Albania "I flew from Albania to UK to join Academic Summer. Maybe someday when I have grey hair, shaky hands and live with many cats, I might forget many things, but I will never forget Academic Summer. Lessons are ‘colourful’ and the teachers are amazing. Academic summer is the perfect mix of education and fun. We went to many trips and did many activities. To sum up, if you want to have the most adventurous summer and learn new things without even noticing it, Academic Summer is just for you."
Annika, age 16 from Germany
Annika, age 16 from Germany "I am Annika and I came here from Germany and I really like here. You get to know so much people from all over the world and it does not take a long time to meet friends even if you come from a completely different part of the world. The activities are really fun and I love them, especially the trips during the weekends. Also the lessons are not too strict, they are interesting. I made a lot of experience here and I am glad to choose to come here again."

Nikita, age 14 from Russia

"Hello, my name is Nikita and I am from Moscow, Russia. Here, in Academic Summer, I have found many friends from different countries. Although it was not very easy, I eventually improved my English skills and expanded the knowledge. But the most important what I have achieved is that I understood how the lessons are being taught and how students learn the subjects in England."

Pijus, age 17 from Lithuania
Pijus, age 17 from Lithuania " Hi, my name is Pijus and I am 17 years old. It is my 4th time in Great Britain. Last year I spent half of my summer with Academic Summer in Liverpool college.

If there was a place ideal to spend one’s summer holidays, I would without a doubt choose the cosmopolitan school of Academic Summer. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the teachers are very enthusiastic and self-assured. Furthermore, the activities are very interesting and everyone is having fun."

Stefan, age 12 from Romania
Stefan, age 12 from Romania

"Being a part of Academic Summer at Sidcot school was an experience like no other for me. The classes are interesting and the teachers are very well-trained and sociable. The trips were fun and exciting. The facilities are perfect, and every room here is clean and tidy. The food is remarkably well-made, and every meal is different and varied. The other students are from a lot of countries, which meant that you will be able to make friends from all over the world. The guest speakers are experts in their domains and their presentations provide excellent chance to learn more about the world. Overall, I would certainly recommend Academic Summer to any students looking for fun and learning 24 hours a day."
