Duration: 2 weeks

I hugely enjoyed my stay, the atmosphere was relaxed and the school staff was very friendly, so the conditions were perfect to practise English. The school reminds me of Harry Potter’s house! I think I improved my skills in English, and in tennis too, thanks to the option offered by the school.

Duration: 2 Weeks

The Ardingly School offers many possibilities, for example: tennis, water sports, dancing, etc. The activity hours are varied and fun! The English food on offer is different to Swiss food, but just as delicious! What’s more, there’s something different every day. The English teaching is playful. You learn a lot that way and there is no homework. You also have fun. During the excursions and shopping trips we always make new friends from different countries. In the games room / living room we play table football or table tennis with other kids. The room is clean and cosy, so we soon felt at home. Therefore, we can only recommend the college!
