Description

ICS is a thriving international school located in the heart of London, inspiring pupils of all ages to be agile learners in an inclusive community.
The ICS Summer School offers expert language tuition for children at all levels from 3-17 years old. In 2019, ICS celebrates 40 years as a summer school
and has welcomed over 50,000 students throughout the years.

During the English School Experience, students boost their language through inspiring activities, projects and London excursions.
The programme provides students with a ‘British style’ school experience which develops a command of English language skills in academic subjects. Each week focuses on a particular theme such as culture, history, commerce or the environment. The thematic nature of the course means students learn within a meaningful context and will not repeat the same lesson or excursion, no matter how long they stay.
Every student takes a placement test on their first day so the team can group children appropriately by level of English and age.

This two-week programme puts learners ahead of their fellow students and gets them in the right frame of mind to take on this world-class programme.
Our student-centred approach focuses on each learners’ ambitions and equips them to make the right choices to fulfil that path. During the course we will

  • Discuss university ambitions and inspire pupils who may be unsure.
  • Visit at least two universities including Cambridge University.
  • Work with each student to practise drafting a university personal statement and think together about how to make their application stand out.
  • Help learners select the right Diploma subjects to get them to their university of choice.
  • Introduce students to a selection of study skills (metacognitive strategies) to help them with time-management, organisation, research, and exam/test skills.
  • Introduce pupils to the ‘Diploma Core’, Creativity Action and Service, CAS, Theory of Knowledge, TOK and the Extended Essay and ‘subject’ areas through mini workshops including maths, humanities, the arts, sciences, English, and language acquisition.

Academic workshops include:

  • Language A: English
  • Language B: Second language and Arts workshop
  • Mathematics
  • Science

Why choose the IB Diploma Preparation course?
