Group Courses in Chester, UK

Courses for Groups

English in Chester has been welcoming groups to the school for over 30 years. We have become specialists in tailor making programmes to suit the needs of different groups of students. If you are an ETO or a teacher and would like to bring a group to Chester, we will be happy to help you organise your stay.

We can offer you several different options depending on the age of your students and when you want to travel.

Closed Group Programmes: School Groups

These programmes can be designed for students from the age of 13. In recent years groups have come from Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Austria, Mexico, Japan, Poland, Argentina, France, Hong Kong and the Czech Republic.

Courses can be run at any time of year. Course dates, course intensity, programme details with inclusive excursions and activities, class size and accommodation requirements are all negotiable.

Summer Courses for Teenagers

We can take mini groups (max 15 students) aged 13-16 between the dates of 28 June and 13 August 2021. We have a good nationality mix on these summer programmes. Click here for more information about our Summer Courses for Teenagers

Closed Group Programmes: Special interest Groups

We can also offer programmes for special interest groups wanting, for example, exam preparation, adult vacation courses, teacher training and many other subject specialisms.

General English and Special Interest Programmes for students aged 16+

We can integrate small groups of students into our adult General English course depending on the time of year and needs of the group. Students can follow a full-time General English course. They can also study part-time on the General English course and have special closed group classes to focus on their specific needs.
