Ben, Woldingham Course Director

From my earliest experience as a Student Host to running a centre as Course Director, working at Discovery Summer has provided fantastic opportunities to learn and grow, achieve personal and professional goals, and make extremely happy memories. Although, summer school can sometimes be challenging, Discovery Summer value and support their staff exceptionally well and welcome you as part of their family. I especially value the high standards that Discovery Summer set, as it is incredibly satisfying to help create an environment where children thrive, feel safe and valued, improve their English and have an incredibly happy summer.

Esme, Marymount Runner

As a Runner, I assist with Pastoral duties, activities and administration. I have really enjoyed seeing the children make new friends from around the world as well as participating in 'all things British'. Woldingham is a nurturing, safe environment for students to have a jam-packed summer of fun.

Cristina, Teacher Shrewsbury

When I found out I had been offered a teaching position at Discovery Summer I knew it was going to be a wonderful opportunity to grow into an even more mature teacher. I am honoured to be able to work alongside a team of enthusiastic and highly qualified professionals who are dedicated to keeping children happy and safe and who always seek to learn which I think is the essence to being a good role model for children. Every summer spent working with the school means knowing a little bit more about myself in this fascinating cultural diversity which is part of our everyday lives.
