Our junior programme
At Bloomsbury International, you learn English by using it.
In our morning lessons, you take part in projects, games and fun activities; you develop your critical thinking and debating skills and learn about interesting topics like technology and nature. You’re certain to speak English to the other students in our mixed nationality classes.
In the afternoons, our social programme explores the best that London has to offer. You visit the best tourist sites and London’s finest parks as well as doing fun activities like bowling and trampolining. You’ll spend time with your new friends, explore a new country, and practise your English, under the guidance of our teachers.
As a parent, you can take advantage of the sightseeing and shopping available in London while your child studies with us. Alternatively, you are welcome to join an adult English class and accompany your child on the social programme.
Our programme is based in our central London campus school and guided by our expert teachers.

About our classes
Primary courses (5-11)
Primary students learn best when they’re having fun. So you study interesting topics taken from science and the arts – topics like Animals & Nature and My Home and School. Stories, games and activities get everyone using English, and you prepare for weekly projects which showcase your progress in English. Our teachers are here to help you every step of the way, improving your vocabulary, correcting your mistakes, and making sure that you’re communicating as much as possible.
Secondary Courses (12-15)
In our secondary courses, you learn English while having fun and building other skills. Interesting activities develop your creativity, debating and critical thinking skills. Topics like technology and science and nature support the academic work you do for the rest of the year. And you prepare in groups for weekly projects which bring together everything you’ve learned. Our teachers will guide you through everything, improving your grammar and vocabulary and making sure that you use English all the time – the best way to learn!
Every afternoon, we take you around the most exciting parks, museums and sightseeing that London can offer. In addition, every student will have at least one paid entrance cultural activity included in their activity programme, which may be a theatre visit to see a musical or, play or visit a famous paid attraction. Our social programme is led by our teachers, which helps you get to know them better and ensures you’re using English all day. It’s a great opportunity to explore, chat with your new friends, and use English in the real world outside the classroom.
Parent and child
Why not take one of our adult courses while your child is on the junior programme? You can both improve your English with the convenience of studying at the same location in central London. There’s no need for the worry of being separated or the hassle of travelling between different sites – just study together at Bloomsbury International.
