Notes to parents and guardians of students under 18 years old

Our Sir George camp is considered to be a "Junior" course. It is for ages 14 to 17, but rules vary slightly for ages 16 & 17 compared to ages 15 and under.
Some students aged 16 & 17  prefer to join our Intensive English "adult" courses (such as EFL-28) and they may sometimes study in classes with Sir George students.

It is important to note that on Sir George:

  • The levels of supervision are higher than those provided on our "adult" courses, but we do not provide 24 hour supervision and students will not always be supervised during free time 
    (See Free time and supervision in the "Timetable" tab above for details)
  • All students are expected to make their own travel arrangements to and from their accommodation.
  • Students aged 16 & 17 may sometimes study in classes with students aged 18 or older
  • Students aged 16 & 17 may sometimes study in classes with students aged 15 or younger
  • The maximum age for students in class with ages14 & 15 will be 17 years year old
    (see point 20 of our Terms and Conditions).
  • There are strict "curfew" rules regarding the latest time under 18s can return to their accommodation in the evening (see the Free time and supervision in the "Timetable" tab above).
  • On homestay camps it is normal for students to have some periods of time in the homestay house without an adult present
  • Students aged under 18 are not permitted to travel independently outside of Cambridge without a responsible adult
  • One specified afternoon activity is provided per week for Sir George students. The school’s social programme for Intenensive English ("adult") Courses is not available to Sir George students. 
  • School social activities are supervised by members of staff, but all students attending social events are expected to make their own way back to their accommodation
  • We sell tickets for full-day and weekend excursions run by other companies but not to under 18s, as we do not think the companies which run them provide the necessary supervision for this age group. Under 18s can only join Studio-organised excursions, which are led by our staff but do allow some unsupervised free-time
  • We advise parents not to allow students to make their own independent transfer arrangements. Return taxi transfers arranged by Studio are included in the camp fees.
    (see the blue "Airport transfers" tab for details)
  • On arrival, students should aim to arrive in their accommodation in Cambridge no later than 20:00

Testimonials from our Students

"I came to Studio with only a few English words I knew, and now I can have conversations with my teachers and my friends in English. Sometimes, I still struggle to say what I want in English, but I think that is all part of learning. I love the town centre, and I have managed to buy many souvenirs for my family. I also love the big old buildings, compared to the new modern buildings we have in Libya. I have loved my experience here and I will remember my summer/spring time here always. This was my first time in Cambridge and I hope to come back again next year! "

Ahmad Jahal from Libya - Sir George student

"The Classes and teachers were very good. Cambridge is a beautiful city with an amazing university which made me think about studying abroad. We did some really interesting things during the lessons like talking about films or preparing for our presentations. It was very interesting to meet people from other countries. Although there were many Swiss students I experienced an exchange between cultures. After the afternoon lessons I did different things with my friends. We hung out in the Cafes or we went sightseeing. I think one day I will come back. Probably again to improve my English, probably to study or maybe just take a holiday. "

Geraldine from Germany - Sir George student

"What I liked most, to be honest, was that I could make so many new friends here. The activities were great! I loved the trip to London and also the trip to Stratford – it was impressive to see the sights there and the trips were very well organised. I love Cambridge because of the old buildings and the whole atmosphere here. The people in reception were very friendly and that was very nice because every time you had a question you could just go to reception and they answered your questions and helped you every time with a smile on their faces. Thank you for making it able for me to come to Studio Cambridge. Thank you for this great experience. I’ll never forget the time and the people here at Studio and in Cambridge "

Silke from Germany - Sir George student

"It was my first time outside Germany and everything was new to me. It was such a great time. I got a lot of new friends and had a great experience. We all know the opinion of every student about schools but I can say It was fun! Especially with our teacher. It was fun with him! "

Danilo from Germany - Sir George student

" The classes and teachers were very good. Cambridge is a beautiful city with an amazing university which made me think about studying abroad. I think one day I will come back. Probably again to improve my English, probably to study or maybe just take a holiday. It was very interesting to meet people from other countries. After the afternoon lessons I did different things with my friends. We hung out in the Cafes or we went sightseeing. Another thing that we did (probably too often!) was shopping. Now we hope that the new clothes fit into our suitcases. We did some really interesting things during the lessons like talking about films or preparing a presentations. "

Sandro from Switzerland - Sir George student

"Studio Cambridge is a beautiful place. You can meet lots of great people and the activities are really fun. The teachers, the reception team and the food … Everything is good here! "

Xarles Tiago from Peru - Sir George student

"I had a good time at Studio! I made good friends, I had a great teacher and I learned a lot here. I liked the city because the people were so nice to me and the excursions were so cool because I got to learn more about England. "
