Adventurers age 7-12

Adventurers is a high-quality primary school course for young learners aged 7 to 12. Adventurers provides a fully integrated summer English language learning course and an academic subject curriculum appropriate for the primary age group. Adventurers offers a wide range of curriculum subjects studied through the medium of English and teaches the English Language according to the can-do principles of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Adventurers benefit from cross-curricular lessons taught by experienced primary teachers. Students can put their learning into practice and use their strengths in one area to support themselves and others in areas where they are less confident. 
 
The results are truly amazing. Children blossom at Academic Summer; they grow in confidence and learn about themselves: what they want to achieve and what they need to do to reach their goals.  
 
We celebrate our Adventurers' successes, encouraging them to be proud of their achievements.

Students, from beginners to native speakers of English,  have enjoyed great success in Adventurers due to its inclusive, nurturing, yet challenging nature.  
 

Personal Best 


We see each person as an individual with the potential to develop and to help others grow. We want to help Adventurers to learn how to achieve their personal best. 

We encourage students to set targets and keep a diary and folder of their work. Through praise and encouragement, we help our students see how far they have come and how much they can do if they continue to work hard, thus enabling them to succeed in their academic and social lives.  
The Personal Best philosophy is shared by all staff of Academic Summer and Academic Juniors, and as a team, we help students achieve their personal best. 
 
  • Content - the curriculum subject itself 
  • Culture - raising awareness of our culture and the culture of others 
  • Cognition - thinking and learning skills 
  • Communication - sharing our knowledge with others 
Adventurers will explore the 4Cs with the guidance of qualified primary school teachers and experienced teachers of English. The  programme is designed to help students widen their subject knowledge and develop their language skills to enable them to follow a course of academic study delivered in English.
