Welcoming a third generation Concordian

Welcoming a third generation Concordian

With Concord Summer’s residential summer programmes re-commencing in 2022, the college will be delighted to welcome a third generation Concordian.

Carlos Bravo, 16, from Portugal will be the third in his family to attend Concord; However, Carlos, named after both his father and grandfather, will be the first to attend a Summer School, rather than for Main Term education.

Said father, Mr Bravo: “I am very happy – I was here as a Main Term student in 1981-1982 studying A levels, and my father was also a student at Concord in Tunbridge Wells in the 1950s.

“It is a great experience and privilege being a Concord student. I met people from all around the world, some of whom are still my friends today.

“Two of Carlos’ friends attended Concord’s Summer School and enjoyed it so much that they attended two years running.

“It will be good for Carlos to experience it and learn and practise his English skills.”

Carlos has enrolled to study Senior English combined with Activities in the July programme.

When asked about his motivations to attend Concord, Carlos said: “I know Concord is known as one of the most reputable colleges in Europe, and I feel honoured about the prospect of becoming a third generation attendee, when I attend Summer School.

“I expect to have a great time meeting a lot of people from around the world, as well as improving my English.”

Concord Summer’s Senior Administrator, Mrs Sharon Connor said: “We look forward to welcoming Carlos in 2022 and to seeing Mr Bravo back at Concord.

“It’s a testament to the success and strength of the college and staff, as well as the shared values and lifelong memories, that the children, grandchildren and friends of alumni continue to join us for summer programmes and Main Term education.”
