Moreton Hall International Study Centre was established in 2005 and today takes up to 50 overseas students, both girls and boys from the age of 13-18. The ISC runs throughout the year, including the summer holidays and is housed in a newly built, dedicated building with accommodation, classrooms and common rooms called Mitchell House.
A Brief Overview of Courses:
Pre-A Level / Intensive Academic Preparation Course
This course is designed to prepare students for entry into UK boarding schools to study A Level. Students study for between one and four terms, depending on their level of English at entry.
The course consists of intensive general English lessons and subject specific lessons in the subjects students wish to take for A Level, predominantly Maths, Science and Economics/Business Studies. Students have 30 hours of lessons per week, including 15 hours of English. Not only is the course designed to broaden the students’ subject knowledge and language skills but also prepares them for boarding school life and teaches them the necessary skills to integrate into the British classroom. Students are encouraged to take advantage of an exciting and stimulating sport and activity programme and trips are organised every Sunday.
Pre-GCSE Intensive Academic Preparation Course
Students can enrol on this course for between one and three terms before they embark on their two-year GCSE programme in Year 10 either at Moreton Hall or at another school. Students have intensive English lessons in the International Study Centre with other overseas students and are taught core GCSE subjects in the main school. This has the added benefit of them being ready to start GCSEs in September without the distraction of settling into a new environment and understanding an unfamiliar language.
International Summer School at Moreton Hall
From July to August students can enrol on a number of courses at the International Study Centre from the 8 or 9 week Intensive Academic Course (see above) to Parent and Child courses or English and Activities.
