Academic Summer is a for-profit company, registered in the UK in 2010. It delivers summer schools for British and international students from 7 years of age during their holidays. It uses premises and facilities rented from independent schools in the West Country, North West England and the London area. Academic Summer is owned by two directors.
Most students attending the courses aim to improve their knowledge of English in context, whilst developing their chosen subject skills. Teaching, therefore, centres on Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL), which is a recognised approach to language learning offered and promoted by Academic Summer. Separate courses, across a very wide range of subjects, are organised for Academic Juniors (7-12 years), Academic Summer (13-18 years) and also for Academic Adults.
