...into the British culture
Our international students love being part of a typical English market town. Senior School students are encouraged to get involved in our Community Service programme, which brings them into contact with people who live and work in the town.
As part of our broad curriculum and weekend trips, students will be exposed to a wide variety of cultural experiences and full advantage is taken of Bishop’s Stortford College’s close proximity to London and Cambridge with visits to art galleries, museums, the theatre etc.
...into Bishop’s Stortford College
International students are integrated into all aspects of life at Bishop’s Stortford College and, once again, the ESL Department plays a key role by helping international students to explore issues of cultural interest and by encouraging them to take part in extra-curricular activities.
There is a diverse blend of full boarders, weekly boarders, pupils who board a few nights a week (flexi-boarders) and day pupils. The College boarding houses create a natural environment for friendships to form between boarders and day pupils, and between those locally based, those from further afield and those from other countries. Through these friendships, full boarders enjoy the benefit of being able, with permission of parents or guardians, to visit or stay at weekends with the families of flexi-boarders or day pupils.
Special boarding community and House events help our international students to further integrate into the College community and international boarders are expected to use English as their primary language in their Houses as well as around the school campus.
