Held for seven days in St John’s College Durham (five minutes from the Cathedral and the river), the school caters for all age groups and all levels. Dietary requirements are fully covered and en suite accommodation is available. https://www.dur.ac.uk/images/st-johns.college/1.AccomodationAndFacilities/foraccomm.jpgAn accommodation block

There are three one-hour classes a day, two in the morning, one in the late afternoon. The teaching is expert. Class sizes rarely get into double figures. There is plenty of study space, outside of one’s room.


The library

Afternoon discussion groups/help sessions are available. Guest speakers provide evening entertainment, as does the College bar and the town (ten minutes walks away).

On the Wednesday afternoon there is a trip to Hadrian’s Wall and some of its forts.

Friday evening is showtime: here two groups of students at the front of the college celebrate their Oscar-winning performance of a scene from Aristophanes
