ISSOS is a summer school unlike any other, we guarantee you will have a summer you will never forget and make friends that will last a lifetime.

ISSOS is a constantly growing international family with students coming to our campuses from all over the world.

For three weeks you will learn from our expert academic and elective teachers, join a Clan, have action-packed adventures, meet new friends from all over the world and explore a new town that will soon feel like a second home.

Students are at the heart of everything we do and we have designed everything about our summer schools with you in mind.

You are with us during your summer holiday, so while you will still be learning lots in your classes we believe that education doesn't have to be boring, and we are confident that you will have just as much fun in your classes as you will when you're taking part in the activities programme or visiting a nearby city on one of our cultural trips.

Your ISSOS Experience

On arrival day you will be welcomed by your counselor and then the first week at ISSOS focuses on getting everyone settled into their Groups and Clans, introduces you to your new surroundings and you will start your classes. 

By the second week, you will have made lots of new friends and will be excited about everything that’s still to come. You will already be immersed in your academic and elective courses, taken part in our evening programmes, been on Wednesday half-day excursions, one of our Saturday cultural trips, and enjoyed a well-earned Sunday morning lie-in. 

When week 3 arrives, you will feel like ISSOS is your second home. You will also be preparing for the final week events and exhibitions, or competing in end of session tennis or golf tournaments. 

A day of highland games and the final night dance are the last events of the programme, and you’ll be sad to leave all of the new friends you made but excited to shareyour ISSOS experience with your friends and family back at home.
