All Senior Students have three hours of classes per day. These typically focus on improving grammatical accuracy, building vocabulary, and developing confidence and fluency when speaking. There is an average of just 5 students in each group, with a maximum of 8, allowing for rapid progress and lots of personal attention.

There is an additional academic workshop per week, followed by extended homework projects. Here, students focus on analysing longer reading texts and developing their writing.

Senior Students have sport and social programmes twice a day on three weekdays, and once on the days they have the academic sessions.
