Description of centre
Newbury Hall is a safe and special place for the academically ambitious. Pupils of all backgrounds come to explore the intellectual and social rigours of life at a British boarding school, to be challenged towards excellence, and to improve their English. We are open every day all year, including half terms, Christmas & New Year, Easter and throughout summer for programmes lasting from one week to six months.
As an international school with a strong cultural mix and a welcoming, eclectic mindset, we have great respect for the diverse backgrounds of our pupils. Our small size and familial atmosphere mean pupils from all over the world quickly build a sense of identity and a feeling of belonging, which in turn helps foster confidence, strong relationships and a sense of responsibility for both our shared and individual ambitions.
Our academic programmes take pupils far beyond mere language learning, be it through a soft landing on the steep learning curve that conveys international pupils into mainstream British education, or by beckoning high-achieving pupils into even greater, unanticipated realms of intellectual delight.
We believe in human classrooms. Living, shared, discursive learning experiences in the midst of the technology and isolation of the modern world means our pupils enjoy being challenged by teachers they respect and are properly guided towards autonomy and social success.
Pupils develop confidence by exploring what is possible and pursuing what is best.
