Buckswood 2024 Overseas Summer School, Guestling (near Hastings), West Sussex


It’s easy to see why kids and teens would want to spend their summer at Buckswood Overseas Summer School (BOSS). It’s an experience of a lifetime that offers more than meets the eye! Of course our English lessons are extremely important but so too is the thrill of trying new activities and visiting new places. The friendships that are made make it such a special experience for our students. 

Here at BOSS, we take pride in helping to shape the lives of our students and, by encouraging confidence through experience, we allow them to challenge themselves through excitement and adventure as well as developing social and life skills in a happy and pleasant environment.

BOSS is not only about experiencing new things and shaping lives, it is also about having lots of fun and being able to take your stories home to share with your friends and family. Our campus in summer is an amazing place, full of life, activities and energy! Who wouldn’t want to spend their summer at BOSS?

Our Courses

BOSS courses are designed to get the most out of our students academically. Our programmes offer 20 hours of English per week including our fabulous ‘A Slice of Britain’ lessons. We also believe that those who work hard play hard and our new approach Activity and Excursion Programme is in place to ensure that our students do just that.

Our programme offers you the chance to get the most out of your time with us, and not only will you learn English, see wonderful places and make lots of great new friends, you’ll also learn independence.

Our Academic Programme

The content of our Academic Programme is carefully prepared on the basis of each student’s individual assessment and needs. The course is planned so that a sensible balance between academic and non-academic activities is maintained. We like to educate our students, but also keep them motivated and never bored!

Each student who attends our Summer School (for a minimum of two weeks) will take the Trinity College Spoken English Exam. The exams are well suited to Summer Schools because everyone can be successful at their own level. Ever y student goes home with an internationally recognised certificate and a feeling of accomplishment, as well as making their teachers and parents happy!
