What is a Mini Stay?

Mini Stays in London and Oxford are short English courses for groups of primary school or high school students who wish to improve their English language skills in the UK while exploring the exciting sights of London on a budget.  Our unique syllabus allows students to get familiar with British culture inside and outside the classrooms. We specialise in closed groups and can put together packages to meet any needs. This programme is taught by our enthusiastic CELTA qualified (or equivalent) teachers who are also trained in safeguarding and welfare.

Our Mini Stay programmes normally include 15 hours of English lessons, full board accommodation, return airport transfers and optional cultural and social activities can be added in the afternoon and at weekends. All English levels are offered from beginner (A1) to proficiency (C2).

You can make this package perfect for your school group travel, adding weekend trips to Oxford, Cambridge and other destinations, social activities on campus or visit London’s most famous attractions and sights such as Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Big Ben and the Tower of London.

Mini Stay Discovery London

Your group only has a week to spend in London which is a short time in such a big and wonderful city. At Find Education we decided to take our classes outside the classroom with interactive cultural English language lessons out and about in the UK’s capital. These cultural activities with integrated English lessons involve interactive visits to museums, galleries and other places of interest.

Mini Stay with School Integration

Tailor-made programmes for groups of young learners and school groups that come to London to participate in integration lessons in an English school. On top of the 15 hours of General English
lessons, we offer the opportunity for your groups to meet British students of similar ages. Our carefully selected schools offer valuable and enriching experiences to international junior students who would like to meet local students and practice English in an everyday environment.

Mini Stay Young Entrepreneurs

Learn the language you need for business, socialising and networking on our dedicated Young Entrepreneur Mini Stay. Our 15 hour course has been designed for students aged 14 years and over who want to do something different during their short stay in London. You will study language associated with giving business presentations, negotiating, holding meetings and entrepreneurship. By preparing and presenting your own business plan you will develop the confidence and skills to communicate more effectively.

Mini Stay with Exam Preparation

During their educational school trip students can prepare for Trinity Graded Examination in Spoken English (GESE) or IELTS. Students can either undertake their exams while they are in London or once they go back to their home country.
