Bede's Summer School - Royal Holloway Centre

Bede's Summer School is based in Royal Holloway University, which welcomes up to 80 students per week, offers a step into history and culture, at the same time ensuring an international and multicultural perspective within a close-knit university community.
As a top 25 UK university, Royal Holloway provided a safe and secure location for younger and older teenagers and sparks their curiosity in the modern global issues, empowering them to expand their minds and help understand power and responsibility. Students on the English for the Future (Capital) course will develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills through exploring the United Nations sustainable development goals, and will debate as future leaders how to take action and transform the world around them.
This fully-inclusive programme makes the most of the proximity to London. Excursions enable students to visit places of interest. These can include a cultural visit to a museum, a workshop and a visit to a popular tourist attraction such as Big Ben, Madame Tussauds or the London Eye. The Sunday trips will give the students a chance to visit a university city and explore some of the best attractions England has to offer.

Royal Holloway offers single standard bedrooms in a beautiful historic student residence on a university campus. The Founder's Building was opened by Queen Victoria in 1886 and contains a dining hall, café, chapel and picture gallery. Students will be accommodated in halls with those of a similar age and from different countries. There is a common area with sofas for students to relax in with their friends and a pantry with fridges and lockers.
