The boarding experience
Students relish the super intensive experience at our boarding schools. They are actively engaged at all times: during lesson, workshops, excursions and evenings.
The Excel Academy arranges a wide range of fun activities outside the classroom that foster English communication skills, relationship building, leadership and independence.
This ideal combination of learning and leisure activities encourages a dramatic improvement in confidence and fluency in English in a very short space of time.
