Millfield English Language Holiday Courses
The Millfield English Language Holiday Courses (MELHC) offer English language tuition together with a full activity, social and cultural programme.
The courses are accredited by the British Council and teachers are appropriately trained to teach English as a Foreign Language.
Our residential summer courses are open to students aged 6-17*, with students aged 6-11 at our Glastonbury campus and students aged 12-17 at our Street campus. We offer various dates in standard blocks of 2, 3, 4 and 6 weeks (the 6 week block is only available for students at our Street campus).
Our main focus is delivering an engaging, creative and educational English learning experience; all of the students attending our courses will participate in at least 15 hours of English tuition per week. For students aged 14-17 with a higher level of English (CEFR B2 and above) we offer a Global Young Leaders programme as an alternative to traditional English lessons. The programme encourages students to learn about themselves and their place in the world, exploring some of the most important issues the world currently faces.
