Why Padworth Summer School?

There is a strong tradition of summer courses at Padworth – the first cohort of Summer School students arrived in June 1964. At Padworth Summer School, we understand the importance of fostering a supportive and inclusive environment for our diverse student body. We believe that a nurturing atmosphere not only enhances their learning experience but also empowers them to grow as individuals. With this in mind, we continually strive to provide a safe and happy space where students from all walks of life can flourish.

By immersing themselves in our vibrant community, students have the opportunity to create lifelong memories and forge lasting friendships.

Our aim is to provide a truly immersive British boarding school experience that combines academic excellence, personal growth, and unforgettable moments.

Join us in 2024 for an unforgettable summer filled with endless opportunities and a community that will inspire and challenge you.
