Etherton Education

Etherton Education runs academic pre-sessional summer courses to prepare international students for studying in British Boarding Schools.

Peter and Anne Etherton founded Etherton Education in 2002 because they know how difficult it is for international students when they first come to the UK.

Our summer courses are designed to give them confidence to speak English both in their houses and in the classroom!  The courses provide an excellent bridge to their new education in the UK. We have seven courses run at four wonderful locations in the UK.

Our Junior Academic (10-12 years) and Pre-GCSE (13-15 years) academic pre-sessional courses are run at Wellington School in Somerset.

Our Pre-A-Level / Pre-IB, Fast Track Pre-GCSE academic pre-sessional courses for students aged 15-17, are run at Lord Wandsworth College in Hampshire.

New for 2020, we also have a 2-week Young Entrepreneur Course held at Lord Wandsworth College.  A business focused course for students aged 15-17, combining classroom study plus outdoor activities, visits and lectures.

Our Introduction to British Boarding for Girls course for female students aged 10-15 years, is run at Badminton School in Bristol.

Our Family Summer course (7-10 years) is run at Dean Close School in Cheltenham.  A course for students, and their parents, to introduce life in a British boarding school.
