As one of the most important and successful footballing cities in the UK, Liverpool offers our energetic Young Students a wonderful and inspiring location in which to combine an English language summer course, with expert football training sessions, delivered by FA qualified coaches!
The City of Liverpool is fortunate to have two English Premiership clubs: Everton and Liverpool Football Club, the latter winning more European trophies than any other English team! Liverpool F.C.’s home ground is the legendary Anfield Stadium, which you will get to visit during your programme. Join our summer course of English combined with world class football coaching and you will make new friends, improve your English skills, take part in technical football lessons, games and matches and discover the friendly and welcoming city of Liverpool at the same time!
This programme is designed to develop your general English language skills and improve your football skills, providing inspiration and developing your confidence in both areas. The English language classes, especially customised for students aged between 12 and 17, take place in the centre of Liverpool, close to all of the city’s sights and attractions. The afternoon schedule is ideal for all students who are enthusiastic about football and who wish to develop their ability, skills and knowledge of the game.
You will receive 15 general English classes each week, on all aspects of the language, but with particular emphasis on developing your communication skills. The classes are taught by native tutors and the teaching methods are modern and dynamic, ensuring fun and enjoyable lessons. In the afternoons you will receive 9 hours of football coaching every week, run by FA qualified coaches! The training covers technical football skills, games and matches and there is an excursion and tour of Anfield, together with a visit to the museum. In the evenings there is an additional programme of cultural and social activities for all students attending this course.
We understand how important accommodation is when you are staying away from home and we are confident that you will feel safe, welcome and at ease, in whatever type of accommodation you choose with us in Liverpool.
For a total immersion experience and the chance to really get to know the local people and daily life in Liverpool, then we recommend you to stay with an English host family. There is a free local bus pass included with host family accommodation, to ensure that your journey to the school is as smooth as possible. The host families all live around 20 minutes on average (and maximum 45 minutes) from the school by bus and both your host and teachers will ensure that you know the easiest way to travel. There are 3 meals per day included (with a packed lunch), in addition to 2 evening activities as part of the school’s cultural programme.
If you wish to meet and spend more time with other international students then you can choose accommodation in the school’s residence building, also on a full-board basis. The residence is located only a couple of minutes’ walk from the school and offers shared rooms with en-suite bathrooms.
The school’s activities programme is packed with exciting things to do and see, in addition to your English tuition and football training! You will take part in cultural trips to Liverpool city centre attractions, museums, galleries and to other places of interest. There are games in the park, workshops in the school, film nights and shopping excursions, as well as much, much more! Full-day excursions include trips to the beautiful Lake District, to the famous and historic city of Chester, and of course, the excursion to Anfield!
The social and activities programme varies slightly, depending on which accommodation option you have chosen. Students staying with a carefully selected English host family will receive more time to spend with their families in the evenings.
Student welfare, security and safety is a top priority and there is constant supervision of all students on the summer course, both during the lessons, the football coaching sessions and throughout the programme of activities.
An airport transfer service can be booked for an additional fee to take you directly to your accommodation on your arrival.
