English Summer Study Holidays

English studies

Practising English should be fun and engaging and isn’t just learnt in the classroom. Our programme is designed to build confidence by encouraging speaking and listening to English as much as possible. All classes are taught by highly qualified and experienced teachers who are all native speakers.


As well as English lessons, we offer a broad range of activities, including a visit to Ely cathedral, swimming, cinema, and creative workshops. Ely benefits from frequent direct rail services to London and Cambridge and we also offer full-day trips to both these exciting cities.

Live with an English family

Ely offers a safe and friendly environment for young people and all students are accommodated with carefully selected local host families. This provides the ideal opportunity for practising English in a welcoming domestic setting, learning about English culture and making new friends.
