Our 6-9 year old age group
6-9 year old students are taught together separate from the older students. We develop their English through engaging activity-based lessons with plenty of individual attention. Play breaks also allow students to explore language with their peers.
Students on the full day course continue with the English in the afternoon. They also go on two afternoon Discover London excursions to see the sights and museums of London on Tuesday and Thursday.
Students at this age should be picked up at 3:20 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday but can stay until 4:30 for clubs if required.
Our 10-16 year old age group
10-16 year olds are taught to in classes according to their ability. In the mornings, students focus on the skills of English: reading, writing, listening, with particular focus on speaking. They develop their pronunciation, intonation and grammar.
In the afternoon students continue with English. They move onto the English of academic subjects like History, Geography, Science, Maths, Art and Music. This prepares students for the Discover London excursions on Tuesday and Thursday.
On Monday, Wednesday and Friday students finish at 3:20. They have the option of Clubs until 4:30 where they play games or work on individual projects and exam preparation as required.
We invite students from all over the world to study at SKOLA. Most of our students are individuals studying alone, with siblings or on parent and child courses. This creates a special atmosphere in class where no one nationality dominates.
Students aged 10-16 can study for a term with SKOLA. This boosts their English for vital tests back home or allows students to pass English tests so they can join a British school.
The Full-day course includes 21hrs of classroom English. This includes 6 hrs of English of Academic subjects like Maths, Science and History, often linked to our 2 Discover London excursions per week. Students can opt for extra Maths in place of one Discover London excursion. Lunch is included in a local Italian restaurant.
Students get a detailed report every 4 weeks and at the end of their course showing their progress and areas covered. Also included is the Oxford Online English Test once a month. This test is used by many schools to determine the English level of prospective students. We can also prepare students for Trinity or Cambridge exams for extra charge.

SKOLA Points is an achievement scale from 1-100. The scale takes students from Beginner to Advanced levels of English. Each level has a low, middle and higher division. Our teachers monitor students in class. At the end of their course they evaluate the progress each student has made from their initial test. Progress is recorded on the end of course report or every 4 weeks for long term students. On average, students at SKOLA make 1-point progress per week.
Our two discover London excursions each week explore the very best that London has to offer. These world class venues give a wonderful journey through this history of London where much of the modern world was discovered or invented. On Monday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon students learn about the locations and when they are there they are prompted to learn even more through our worksheets. Students also take our tablets with them to record their favourite objects.
During the academic year we choose from Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum, British Museum, Covent Garden, RAF Museum, Museum of London, Museum of Docklands, Science Museum, Imperial War Museum, National Gallery, Walking tour Buckingham Palace, London Transport Museum, Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge, London Eye, St Paul's Cathedral, Thames River Cruise, Hampstead Heath & Kenwood House, Royal Court of Justice, Greenwich, Winter Wonderland and the Geffrye Museum.

Last night we visited the Mamma Mia musical and Airis understood everything that was going on on stage. Her progress is visible. We are very happy.

Parents, children and hosts are provided with 24-hour contact telephone numbers for the accommodation agencies that arrange the stay and the schools. SKOLA has a dedicated staff member to assist you or your child with any problems or questions regarding accommodation. Children are asked regularly during their stay about their accommodation, the food and their happiness with the arrangements. All their feedback is read and followed up if necessary and feedback on hosts is recorded and monitored.
