Unrivalled Support System

Immerse Education provides an unparalleled educational experience in inspiring locations for participants aged from 11 to 18 years old. Tutorials, lessons and seminars are taught by highly regarded educators in an optimal learning environment that stimulates academic enquiry; yet the carefully planned schedules ensure that the programmes not only meet the academic needs of the participants, but also provides a unique experience through an abundance of extracurricular and leadership activities.

We place great importance on providing a safe, secure and enjoyable experience for our participants, and our responsible and qualified staff are there to ensure that all participants are able to thrive. Students are supervised by our  summer school staff made up of experienced on-site Programme Manager and a team of ‘Mentors’ who are a team of trained undergraduates from top Universities. All accommodation sites are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We offer participants a choice of a range of subjects, from the arts and sciences to photography and digital design . All the subjects  are taught by educators who are current or previous members of some of the UK’s most prestigious universities, and have outstanding teaching experience. Our rigorous vetting process ensures that all participants are taught by educators who are engaging and supportive – and most of all, enthusiastic to share their expertise to ensure our  summer school teaching is of the highest quality.

Our philosophy is that our participants should be challenged with interesting academic concepts; whilst our tutors and teachers create a welcoming and supportive environment in which our participants feel comfortable and thrive.

Each Immerse Education Campus has an Onsite Programme Manager who manages the onsite Mentor Team and oversees the organisation and execution of academic classes and social activities.  The Programme Manager is an experienced individual who will be there to answer any queries participants or parents might have.

We place a huge emphasis on creating a supportive and approachable environment at Immerse Education. Our mentors are a team of friendly, specially trained graduates and undergraduates from Cambridge University or Oxford University, who help our participants quickly settle into the programme. The mentors have first hand experience with a variety of academic and non-academic issues and are therefore in the best position to offer friendly, confidential one-to-one advice. It’s an unrivalled support network that we’re incredibly proud of.

During the programme, participants are treated to lectures by a series of well-known and well-respected speakers. From politicians to philosophers, the speaker lecture series at Immerse Education is an opportunity for students to gain insights into topics not often on the school syllabus.
