The Programme

The Short Term Study Course starts at the beginning of the second half of the Trinity (summer) term. There are two options of study to meet your personal needs: a full 4 week course or a 2 week course. Both courses allow pupils the opportunity to experience life in an English Boarding School during term time.


Those taking part in either of the short-term study courses will join existing pupils in their daily timetabled lessons and will be accommodated in the single sex boarding houses. This is a very different experience to the traditional ‘Summer School’ because our visitors will really engage with learning as well as involve themselves in all sort of exciting and enjoyable activities. It is also an excellent way to sample boarding for those parents and pupils who might be considering a full time boarding education.


The cost of the programme is all inclusive with everything including tuition, accommodation and food, social activities and excursions included in the price.  The price also includes airport transfers to and from Manchester or Leeds-Bradford airport on arrival and departure.  The only money that pupils might wish to bring is some pocket money to spend on souvenirs, personal shopping or refreshments whilst out of school on excursions or for taxis for personal use during free time.


The cost of the programme assumes that pupils will join in with the usual boarding activity programme.  Whilst the programme is full and busy, additional trips can of course be planned although this is not included in the current pricing structure. We will be happy to suggest day trips and venues and work with you to arrange these should you wish.

When is the next Course?

The next Short Stay Study Course for children who are interested in visiting Rishworth School  and Heathfield will take place between 4 June – 5 July 2018.
