Coming to England is an exciting adventure. To get the most from your stay you need to feel safe, secure and happy.

Each centre has dedicated, trained house parents/welfare staff. They will be there to welcome you, answer any questions and make you feel at home. They are available for you 24 hours a day to administer any medication, look after you if you are sick and generally care for your wellbeing.

We also have designed First Aiders and/or visiting nurses. There is easy access to nearby health centres/hospitals.

There is a 24-hour emergency phone for parents and students to call if necessary.


Boys and girls are accommodated separetely. We normally place you in a bedroom with students from other countries. Where we offer single rooms, we mix nationalities in corridors. There is a personal laundry service once or twice a week. Our staff also live in the boarding houses.

We provide a healthy range of food that includes typical English meals and international food.


The Discovery Summer experience is about maximising opportunities for making friends and improving your English. This is why we limit the time you can spend on your mobile phone/WiFi.

We mix nationalities throughout the day to give you more opportunities to develop real friendships.


  • Our teachers are all appropriately qualified and ensure classes are lively and interactive. They incorporate their many skills and interests into your lessons (e.g. drama, music, tech)
  • Over 60% of our staff return each summer
  • New staff are carefully selected and given additional training to ensure the highest level of professionalism and support.


Flight Transfers

We offer a professional and friendly 'Meet and Greet' service.

Once you have collected your luggage you will come out of the Customs Hall and see one of our airport representatives, holding a Discovery Summer sign with your name. Coaches/taxis leave at regular intervals to take you to your centre.

On departure, we check you onto your flight and see you through the departure gate.

Airport transfers by coach or taxi are included in the fees on published arrival and departure dates for flights scheduled to arrive/depart between 09.00 and 15.00 hours from/to specific airports. Click here for details.

Special private transfers (at extra cost) can be arranged at any other time and from any other airport.

We recommend you book your flights as early as possible.
