We offer you a four-day English language experience (5 nights away) where we host students and their teachers in exclusive accommodation, providing full board and a programme of activities to suit different tastes and interest different age groups, catering for the specific level of English language stipulated for your pupils.
Old Vicarage can accommodate up to 40 pupils in small dormitories, with separate bathroom facilities. We offer one free staff place for every ten pupils. Visiting staff are accommodated in private bedrooms with their own bathroom facilities, located in the vicinity of the pupils’ accommodation for ease of night-time supervision.
'The best thing about Sunny Hill Language School is the people. Everyone is so friendly and kind. I felt very welcome here.'
- Maithe, aged 14
Excellent meals and recreational facilities
All meals are taken in the school’s Dining Room, which serves delicious, traditional, restaurant-quality meals and caters for all dietary requirements upon request.
Old Vicarage has good recreational facilities, including a fully-equipped staff lounge with free wi-fi, but guests are also able to use some of the extensive facilities (picnic tables, giant outdoor chess, tennis courts, etc.) on the school grounds, under staff supervision.
'The delicious food, the great people you meet, the culture and nature of England... it's all awesome!' - Marthe aged 14
A full and exciting programme of activities
As well as lessons, day-time activities and local visits, we offer a programme of evening activities, some of which include interaction with our boarders, so your pupils are fully occupied at all times. We plan and deliver all lessons, activities and trips, but the students remain your responsibility throughout your stay.
The role of the accompanying teachers is to supervise their group at break times, meal times and overnight (including personal care, such as getting ready, showering, first-aid, dispensing medicine, etc). There are several first-aiders on site.
