We are thrilled to announce the launch of our first Summer School which takes place this July in the beautiful setting of The Elms School in Malvern, Worcestershire.

Pippa’s Summer School offers pupils aged 9 to 14 a fully immersive two week learning experience through a wide range of inspiring, creative and cultural activities while at the same time providing a perfect introduction to studying in the UK.

MD Ben Hughes explains: “With over 20 years of experience working with overseas families, we are uniquely placed to offer this wonderful experience for your child. Our Summer School will help familiarize students with boarding school life, assist them with their English language skills and immerse them in British culture and history.”

Pippa’s Summer School runs from July 16th to 29th at The Elms School in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Pippa’s Guardians has forged a close relationship with The Elms over many years of caring for international students at this warm and inviting school. As well as being very near to our head office in Malvern, the children of our managing Director Ben Hughes attend this school and Ben’s wife, Louise, teaches there. Students will get a wonderful insight into life at a British boarding school while studying here and also the chance to widen their horizons while making friends with students from all over the world.

The school has wonderful facilities, which are all utilized by Pippa’s Summer School, including an indoor heated swimming pool, extensive sporting facilities and a theatre as well as extensive grounds. Uniquely, this lovely school has its own farm, complete with a prize-winning herd of Hereford cattle, traditional English Gloucester Old Spot pigs, free range chickens and a whole host of horses and ponies – horse riding activities will be included in the summer school for those students who would like to take part.

Under the direction of our own team of teachers and Pippa’s Guardian’s support staff, pupils taking part in the Summer School will take advantage of a personalized programme of learning, designed to boost their English language skills and encourage their confidence in speaking, reading and writing in English. As well as English lessons, your son or daughter can take part in our extensive range of sporting and artistic activities. These football, swimming, tennis, hockey and rounders, as well as music, singing, dancing, drama, art and crafts. There is something to appeal to all pupils and the chance to try new things!

At the same time, pupils will stay with our wonderful network of host families, who will introduce them to British family life, food and customs – a truly unique experience for your son or daughter and one where they will make, we are sure, many happy memories. This is a great introduction to another feature of boarding school life – as nearly all of the students we look after at Pippa’s Guardians stay with our host families, who are all welcoming and caring families, fully vetted in accordance to the highest safeguarding standards of AEGIS, our governing body.

While here in the UK, pupils will also get the opportunity to take part in some wonderful historical and cultural visits, including trips to Oxford University, Cheltenham College and Warwick Castle. There is even a visit to the extremely popular Warner Brother’s Harry Potter Studios Tour! At the end of the Summer School pupils will come together to recognize their achievements and celebrate their new friendships.
