Wise Owl English Language Limited is accredited by the British Accreditation Council for Independent Further and Higher Education as a Short Course Provider. Accreditation covers courses delivered in the UK only.
Choosing an accredited institution provides students and their families with assurance that the provision meets the standards set out in the British Accreditation Council Accreditation Handbook.
If these published standards are not met, students will be able to seek redress through an agreed British Accreditation Council complaints procedure.
Wise Owl English Ethos:
WORK HARD · PLAY HARD · BE HAPPY · BE KIND · BE CONFIDENT
This is what we want all our students to do and how we want them to feel.
When we see students showing this behaviour, we want to reward them, so we give them an OWL award. When you receive an OWL award, stick it into your exercise book, so your parents can see when you go home!
If students do not follow the school rules, we show them a yellow card. If a student continues to misbehave in the same session, we show them a red card and they are excluded from the session. If a student is shown a red card, they have to see the course manager and are given a sanction.
Students receive points for OWL awards and lose point for yellow and red cards. At the end of every week, the class with the most points wins a prize. The individuals with the most points each week (a boy and a girl) also win a prize!
The list below outlines specific instances of behaviour which are considered unacceptable at summer school. The list is not exhaustive:
Wise Owl English is committed to ensuring that students with disabilities are able to participate in the summer programme. Specific requirements and possible provision are considered on a case-by-case basis.
Wheelchair accessible areas of the school include: entrance hall, theatre / assembly room, one classroom, dining room, toilets and most of the school grounds. Due to the protected status of the school building, it is not practical to make some areas wheelchair accessible, such as student accommodation, showers and the rest of the classrooms. Wheelchair users are thus able to participate in the summer programme as day students, rather than boarding students.
