High School Programme: Chichester College

Study for one term, a semester or a full year as part of your High School Programme. This programme is ideal for those who wish to experience academic life in the UK. This opportunity allows students to develop academic knowledge and improve their English language skills at our English Language School.

High School students will be given an individual timetable combining their three chosen subjects with English classes and one-to-one tutorials to discuss academic progress. Students can also enjoy arts or sports classes, plus weekly enrichment and social events, making our High School Programme a truly exciting experience.

International students will have the chance to study with British A-Level students in their classes; this can be for one term, a semester or a full year. Students who stay for a full year needs to see our AS Courses.

We welcome applications for students to start their studies in September or January, so please get in touch!
