Short Term English as a Foreign Language

At Greenfields we offer Short Term English as a Foreign Language programme throughout the year. This means that a student can attend our school from as little as 1 week up to 6 weeks at any time during the school year. The student will experience what it is like to be in a British boarding school and will improve their English whilst also being immersed in British culture on fun and educational excursions.

Our courses have been specially designed to cater for children of all ages, with all levels of English. We use the internationally renowned Cambridge curriculum throughout the school which we use to tailor-make an appropriate educational programme for each child so that they get the most out of their stay. They will not only learn English but they will also take part in Maths, Art, Sport and Computer lessons.

We accept boys and girls from the ages of 11-17 years old from all over the world.

£595.00 per week

Our price per week is £595.00, this includes lessons, activities and excursions, meals and accommodation.

We offer high levels of pastoral care and an exciting range of cultural and sporting activities to help students make the most of their stay in England. Our dedicated and highly-trained teams ensure an excellent experience for all our students from start to finish.

Student Success Stories

Summer in Greenfields is awesome! Greenfields is a great place to learn and meet new friends! I even found my best friend here. There is not enough words to say how much I want to thank everyone. I enjoyed the trips to places around UK, Winnie the Pooh Corner, Brighton, London, Oxford, Cambridge and other activities like Bowling and shopping which were great. I also learnt the history of the UK, which is amazing!


I liked staying in Greenfields School, it was very entertaining and amazing. I loved visiting Oxford, Brighton, Hever Castle and London. I liked staying here because I met other people from other countries and this was very amazing.


I have attended Greenfields for 3 weeks. This was my first year as a boarding student and I can say that I have really enjoyed it. I spent a lot of time with different people and I think I improved my English a lot. I met some amazing people and I made great friendships with all of my classmates. I enjoyed our free nights when we played cards all together. Our English lessons were really good and I think I learnt a lot of new things.



In addition to our popular Short Term English Programmes we also offer an exciting Summer School.
