Overview

Discovery Summer is an independent, family-owned company, founded in 2002. The owners and team have extensive experience in running summer schools. The Head Office team of five, together with external consultants with specialist knowledge in education, dedicate their time throughout the year to developing exciting, innovative, and challenging programs for children, teenagers, and families.

Discovery Summer runs short, intensive summer courses in five well-known independent boarding schools and in two well-appointed teaching centers in Kensington, London. The student experience is hugely enhanced by living and studying in these first-rate campuses with many outstanding facilities.

By learning new skills, trying new activities, and enjoying new experiences – in English – our students discover talents they never thought they had! They get to know our culture, our country, make British friends and share this experience with new friends from many cultures around the world.

This camp is run at Winchester College just outside the historic walls of Winchester, 100km southwest of London and approximately 1.5 hours by road from London Heathrow and Gatwick.

The College has impressive facilities including a theatre, playing fields, cricket, football pitches, and tennis.
