With over 35 years of experience, we offer a fantastic experience in hosting children from all over the world. We understand that it is a big decision when you choose to send your child abroad for a few weeks however our friendly staff are always available to help you along the way.
We are also one of the few independent schools in the UK to offer an all-year-round Long or Short Term EFL Programme. Your child can come to Greenfields at any point in the year to study English from as little as 1 week.
The student will concentrate on learning English in our English as a Foreign Language class and experience what it is like to be in an English boarding school whilst also being immersed in British culture on fun and educational excursions.
On a daily basis, your child will get direct, almost one-to-one attention using the world-renowned Cambridge Global English curriculum, which means that they are getting the best possible preparation for further studies. The Cambridge curriculum is used throughout the entire school, which provides a pathway to a British university education.
During their time in the EFL class, they will also get the opportunity to experience England by going on excursions to popular cities such as London and Oxford as well as visiting historical sites, museums and more.
For those children that are 11 years old and older, they can board at the school in our on-site boarding house. Our newly-renovated boarding house provides a fantastic “home away from home” experience for every child. We understand that it is very difficult to send your child abroad to study but our friendly staff ensure that your child is well looked after and has an experience that they will remember forever.
