Our English course is accredited by the British Council and a summary of the latest inspection report is available to view. We are also members of English UK.
From September to June, students study for GCSE, ‘A’ Level and ‘AS’ Level examinations in preparation for university entrance. Concord's main term has an excellent academic reputation and is listed third in The Times Good Schools Guide. Please see our Main Term website for more information.
Concord has two Summer Schools each year and students may enrol on one or both courses. Each is 23 days.
Concord's summer courses aim to provide a foundation for learning:
- To building students' confidence
- To improve academic skills and knowledge
- To find self-worth in a range of enrichment activities
- To experience aspects of Britain and the British way of life
- To meet and make friends from around the world and enhance international understanding
- To provide a safe and caring environment in which all students can flourish
The courses are constructed carefully to give each student the opportunity to study a full English or Science programme and, with the addition of a wide range of sporting and social activities available, there is so much to enjoy and see.
The word 'concord' means harmony and it is a fantastic opportunity for young people from all over the world to live and study together on campus and to experience other languages and cultures.
