Wycliffe College, located in Gloucestershire in the small town of Stonehouse which has a busy high street with gift shops, restaurants and cafés, is an ideal location for our young learners. The green college campus is surrounded by the beautiful Cotswold Hills and countryside and enjoys all the benefits of space and the outdoor lifestyle.
The school itself was founded in 1882 and has excellent facilities for learning and activities. Many of the facilities are new and of a high standard including the new sports centre, astro-turf playing field and a good range of accommodation with some of the houses offering en-suite accommodation.
At Wycliffe, we offer young learners the opportunity to combine learning English with sports and activities. The college has two independent sites, each of them with its own accommodation, learning and catering facilities, which allows us to split students into two groups according to their age. Younger students aged 8-11 years share the junior school, while students aged 12-16 years stay at the senior school. The schools are 10 minutes walk apart.
We also run a family programme which provides the opportunity for parents and children to learn English at the same time. Parents are taught separately in adult classes in the mornings with their children following lessons with other young learners. More info »
