"My experience at Academic Summer has been one of the best so far. The DLD college London is a very comfortable place, all the tutors and teachers are helpful, kind and always at your disposal to help you, I felt like I was at home literally! Moreover, I met lots of new people from different cultures and still keep in touch with them, I had the chance to see the beautiful London in the afternoon and to do plenty of exciting activities and workshop at the college. It's been an enriching experience for me and I'll never forget it!"                                                                                    Giulia, 18, Italy

Guided by our panel of passionate and dedicated staff, we’ll help take your education to the next level – whether that’s studying in a UK school, achieving top grades at GCSE or getting into Oxbridge.

Do you struggle with particular subjects? Perhaps you find maths frustrating or physics boring. Our small and dynamic classes led by expert tutors will help you see these topics and many other with a fresh, invigorated perspective.

Our unique CLIL approach means international students will hone their English language skills via a host of different and stimulating topics, from design technology to music.

It also allows our UK students to re-visit their grasp of grammar and focus on the literary skills needed to write a top-class essay at university level.

We provide a fun and challenging summer boarding school experience, with a host of fun leisure activities and the opportunity to make friends from all over the world. In the global market we live in, this opportunity is invaluable.

Academic Summer ages 13-18: class details
Many people get lost in the enormous class sizes of modern schools. If you choose to study with us at Academic Summer, you’ll never be in a class larger than 15 students. That means each pupil gets the attention they need to thrive.

The academic programme covers 30 hours a week. It includes four 75-minute study blocks daily, alongside one-to-one tutor time and a compelling range of lectures, workshops, assemblies and educational trips.

Our experienced, top-grade teachers look forward to sharing their enthusiasm and love of their subjects with you. They’ll cater sessions to your individual requirements.

They’ll also ensure lessons strike a careful balance between theory and practice, to keep students fully engaged.

If you love science, you’ll find yourself doing plenty of experiments in state-of-the-art laboratories. If you choose to study design technology, you’ll do so in a series of creative hands-on workshops covering woodwork, textiles, graphic design and beyond.

We want our students to think like mathematicians, linguists, economists, historians and scientists and develop a passion for their subjects.

We also encourage those on our courses to work independently outside classes. This way, you get to develop the focus and autonomy needed to take you through school, university and beyond into your professional life.
