Stonar Summer School
Stonar School, founded in 1895, is an independent day and boarding school situated in the South-West of England occupying eighty acres of parkland and gardens near Bath. As part of the NACE education group, Stonar is linked to several international partner schools and is widely known as the UK's leading equestrian school offering riding lessons alongside the regular academic curriculum. The facilities include an indoor school, four cross-country courses and stabling for up to 65 horses and ponies.
The Summer School program includes "Project English", which is an exciting task-based course component that allows students to work together to design and create their very own product, be it a video presentation, class magazine or even a play! The aim is to helps students develop their interpersonal and team working skills in a highly communicative setting, ensuring the English they learn is used in realistic and meaningful contexts.
Conversation is focused by theme to give a meaningful context and to encourage engagement. A variety of teaching techniques including projects, group work, research tasks and worksheets ensure that no two days are the same which reinforces and embeds learning. Trinity College exams* can be taken by students, providing an internationally-recognised qualification.
