School Integration

Full School Integration in the UK for individuals and groups (11-18 yrs)

Full School Integration in the UK for individuals and groups (11-18 yrs)

This programme is perfect for individual students or school groups who want to experience the UK school system from a pupil’s perspective.

International students will “buddy” up with British schoolchildren of the same age and follow the UK school curriculum each day for the duration of their stay. They will participate in a variety of academic subject classes (including STEM, Humanities, Social Sciences and the Arts) as well as physical education and sport…and all in English! Classes typically run from 09:00 – 15:00 on Monday to Friday after which students can join extra-curricular activities or take part in the optional activities and local visits (see sample timetable link below).

During breaks and at lunchtime, the international students will have the opportunity to interact and socialise with their “buddies” and their buddies’ friends in a relaxed atmosphere. They will receive a lunch ticket every day and can choose from a selection of hot and cold meals and drinks.

Group Leaders are welcome to stay at school during academic classes and sports and will have the opportunity to observe some classes.

All British schoolchildren wear a “school uniform” and international students will be expected to wear clothes in the school colours.


This programme is available throughout the academic year (September – July) except during the school holidays (e.g. Christmas, Easter, and half-terms). Let us know the dates and preferred location where you would like to do your integration programme and we will advise you of the availability at our partner schools in that area. Individual students can stay from 2-7 weeks and groups from 1-7 weeks.


We have numerous locations around the UK where we offer this programme as you can see on the map link below.
