About Us

Discovery Summer is an independent, family-owned company, founded in 2002. The owner, Jane Merrick, and her team have extensive experience in running summer schools. The Head Office team of seven, together with external consultants with specialist knowledge in education, dedicate their time throughout the year to developing exciting, innovative and challenging programmes for children, teenagers and families.

In 2019 we welcomed students from over 50 countries. Most students come by recommendation, either from family or friends, or from our network of international representatives. Many students return year after year, some for as many as 10 successive summers!

Discovery Summer first introduced resident 'English Student Hosts' into our programmes in 2002. The involvement of these English children (the same age as the international students) encourages English to be the natural language of communication. Our international students learn 'colloquial' English from native speakers - as well as making lasting friendships.

Our short courses combine learning with a great 'British' experience. By learning new skills, trying new activities and enjoying new experiences - in English - our students discover talents they never thought they had! They get to know our culture, our country, make British friends and share this experience with new friends from many cultures around the world. But, most of all, they have lots of fun, gain enormous confidence and leave wanting to relive the whole experience again the following summer.

We hope you'll join the Discovery family this summer!
Green is our future.
