For over 30 years Harrow School Short Courses has welcomed boys and girls from over  45 countries on our ‘Serious Study, Serious Fun!’ summer camps for children aged 9 to 17 years to learn English or improve their English skills whilst learning more about British life and culture.

We offer high quality EFL (English as a Foreign Language) and multi-activity courses in July at world famous Harrow School, and also online English as a Foreign Language lessons year round.

Students on our summer camps also take part in some of the best activities and excursions in the UK and often make friends for life.

If you’re looking for a high quality English language summer camp at a famous British boarding school with amazing activities and excursions all included in the price, these courses are for you.



Summer school is the perfect opportunity to forget about exams and to focus on communicating in English. We encourage students to put their knowledge into practice, meaning they enjoy their language lessons, improve rapidly and feel proud of their progress. We call this ‘Serious Study’. Our lessons are complimented by excursions to some of the best places for children and teens to visit in London and the UK. Fun activities are also provided on-site and our famous English + Multi-Activity courses offer students something out of the ordinary every day.


Lessons help students improve their speaking, listening and pronunciation skills, giving them confidence to communicate more fluently in English. We teach language along with the soft skills that students need for success in modern life, such as teamwork, negotiation, debate, problem solving, presentation and leadership. We aim to promote a love of language learning that will stay with students for many years to come.
