High School Full Integration Programme

This programme is perfect for students who want to live the life of a British or American teenager for a short period. For group leaders and parents, this is an ideal opportunity for students to improve their English and understand the UK state or US public school systems.

Students will “buddy” up with teenagers and follow exactly the same curriculum for the whole school day, for a period of 1 – 7 weeks. They will participate in classes with other students, follow all the lessons in English as well as enjoying the opportunity to chat with them in a more relaxed setting at lunchtime. Group leaders accompanying the students are welcome to sit in on the classes too. 

Why not book a Full School Integration just before your group takes part in an Ardmore Summer/Easter course? It’s a great way to encourage language learning and give students added confidence before they start their course. 

The programme offers accommodation with carefully selected host families located close to the school. 
We have several locations where we can offer this programme and we will advise you of the possible availability for the dates you have chosen. Students will be fully immersed in either the British or American way of life, enjoying a truly memorable learning experience.

A typical school day

Many schools start the day with an “Assembly” i.e. where the whole school meets together in the hall with the teachers. Important announcements are made during this first 30-45 minutes of the school day.

Students will then be divided into smaller numbers and will join their English/American ‘buddies’ in classes, taking part in everyday school life. e.g. Geography, English, History lessons, etc. This could involve playing sports, studying IT, learning a classic play or discovering cookery!

Lunch service usually starts at midday. Students will receive a lunch allowance to choose a hot or cold meal according to their wishes.

Afternoon school follows the same pattern as the morning and when the final bell sounds, students will return to their host families or hotel.

The minimum level of English for this programme is Intermediate (IELTS 5.5).
