Vacational Studies

Vacational Studies was started in 1973 by its current management, providing residential English Language Courses for children aged 10-18.

The School we use is The Mary Hare Grammar School in Newbury, Berkshire. The School has an extensive campus with various houses, ranging from the Manor House with small dormitories for the younger children to Murray House, opened in 2013, with singles and twins with en-suite for the older ones.

Vacational Studies uses Task-Based Teaching which is structured over four weeks and involves each class writing, creating, filming, editing and uploading its own video. Our experienced Academic Manager is on hand to assist and advise with this and all aspects of teaching. He also runs teaching workshops during the Course.

Students come to Vacational Studies on personal recommendation. We limit the number from any particular country. Many students are second generation. We place four carefully chosen native English students to encourage English-speaking socially. Exceptional students can progress to become prefects and apprentices prior to making application for sports posts.

We value the continuity that returning teachers provide and have sponsored some on DELTA and similar courses.
