Welcome from the Summer School Director

I’m delighted to report that the first edition of Bishop’s Stortford College International Summer School was an overwhelming success. 

We welcomed nearly 300 students from 12 different countries during 2 x 2 week courses in July and the feedback was absolutely fantastic: a very experienced Group Leader from Latvia said,

“Thank you so much for what you did to make our stay so amazing! Could you please book me in for the next summer?”

The teachers with a private school group from Argentina wrote:

“Thanks for your kindness, generosity and patience and congratulations on your fantastic teamwork and organisation. Hope to see you next year!”

The father of a Slovakian girl emailed us to say,

“She returned yesterday and has enjoyed her stay a lot. She liked the programme, facilities, the staff, as well as the opportunity to be among students of different nationalities. She made new friends and has arrived back home with enthusiasm and good emotions.”

These are just a few of the many compliments that we have received both during and after the summer school and while it is very satisfying and rewarding to hear and read such comments, we know that we can improve and make the experience even better next summer.

So, what are you waiting for? Get in touch today to secure a place for yourself, your child or your group and it will be my pleasure to welcome you to BSC ISS 2023!
