First of all we would like to thank you for your interest in applying to work for Bucksmore in 2019, our 40th anniversary year. Please bear with us while our 2019 recruitment information is updated and finalised.
Working in summer schools is a rewarding experience for both students and staff and Bucksmore aim to make our courses ones that our students never forget. The Bucksmore philosophy is for students to mix with their fellow students and staff wherever possible to make their time with us a rich and truly international cultural experience.
Students attend different academic courses (receiving English language tuition or tutor led classes) but all take part in a comprehensive activity programme including up to two full day-excursions and one half-day trip every week. There are activities every afternoon and evening with the excursions and trips spread throughout the working week.
