English language summer camp with additional STEM workshops
English language summer camp with additional art workshops
Performing Arts students combine an immersive English syllabus and full activity and excursion programme, with specialist workshops in drama, dance, music. Workshops are taught in partnership with West End On Demand, a group of accomplished performers and professionals with a background on stage, who can provide unrivalled tuition via the classroom and practical workshops.
15 English + 7.5 Arts
Expert-led music, dance & drama workshops
Performing Arts can cater for all levels of English, from beginner through to advanced.
The age range is 10-13.
All workshops are run by current professional west end performers. Each week learners will explore different themes allowing students to learn about all aspects of British performance. Themes for 2019 included Shakespeare’s Mid Summer Nights Dream, west-end hit The Lion King, as well as J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka.
Students share English lessons with students on Bucksmore Summer. During some periods of the week, students are separated from the main group to take part in their chosen specialism.
Lessons are taught through a combination of general English tuition, project sessions, academic English, conversation classes and excursion link lessons.
This course will help students to build language skills and confidence gradually through our multi-level syllabus and enable students to explore performing arts.
To provide students with an even greater holistic language learning experience, we provide lessons specifically linked to the destinations they visit on their excursions.
Project sessions enable students to use English for the completion of real-world tasks with an authentic purpose. Students receive vocabulary and grammar input in the first part of the project session and are then placed into groups. Groups are provided with a project guideline which they should follow and aim to complete in the preparation session. The weekly project culminates in a presentation evening in which groups display and present their work.
Taken at the end of the course, the assessment is designed to complement the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) and to provide learners with a realistic determination of their English ability. It can be applied against other international English exams such as Cambridge ESOL & IELTS. Students will leave the course with a certificate of recommended English level measured against the CEFR scale.
Organised by a dedicated Activity Manager, each week students will have two full days and one half-day excursion to destinations across the UK, plus an on-site activity programme.
