Set in the heart of the beautiful English countryside in spectacular grounds with extensive facilities. Join us for a summer of fun from 8 July to 22 July 2018!!


Bath Academy has a NEW and additional Junior Summer School, which is a fully residential campus in the countryside.

Milton Abbey is in a wooded Dorset Valley an hour and a half from Bath. It is a historical boarding school which provides the perfect self-contained environment for young students to study English and experience another side of English life away from the city.

Nearby, the bustling towns of Blandford and Dorchester are beautiful places to visit, while the coastal towns of Poole, Weymouth and Bournemouth offer even more activities for excursions.
We welcome students from all over the world, including both individuals and groups. Aimed at 9-16 year olds, classes have a maximum of 13 students per class, and all our teachers are fully qualified English Language teaching professionals, vetted according to British Council and UK standards.

Lessons and full board residential accommodation is included in the price. You can find out about fees here. There is the option to combine Milton Abbey Residential Junior Summer School with our Bath Academy of English Junior Summer School to extend study duration – find out more information here.
