Separate lessons for 13-17 years and 18-25 years. English lessons take place in the mornings from 09h30-11h00 and 11h30-13h00 Monday to Friday. There is a break from 11h00-11h30 when drinks and cookies are provided. We follow a lesson framework to ensure that all areas are covered (speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar and pronunciation) though the main objective is to improve your confidence to enable you to pass your high school exams in English.
A buffet style lunch is included for all students at Sixways from Monday to Friday between 13h00-14h00. At weekends your lunch is included with your homestay family if you are at home, or packed lunches provided if you are on an organised day trip.
Worcester Warriors Rugby Coaching
Separate coaching groups for 13-17 years and 18-25 years. Rugby coaching takes place from 14h00-16h00 Monday to Friday at the Sixways Stadium complex. We cater for total beginners to experienced rugby players who want to take the next step in their development. The programme is staffed by an experienced set of coaches who ensure that it is run in a safe and enjoyable way whilst ensuring current skills and techniques are covered. All participants get the opportunity to learn and develop their skills through a range of conditioned games and drills.
Safeguarding of under-18s
- All Kingsway and Worcester Warriors staff looking after under-18s are DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked to ensure your youngsters are in the care of properly qualified staff.
- All under-18s are accompanied between their homestays / city centre and Sixways by a member of Kingsway staff or their homestay family, both in the morning and after rugby coaching in the afternoons.
- All homestays looking after under-18s are also DBS checked and act ‘in loco parentis’ which means they will look after their students as though they were their parents. We expect our students to give their homestay family the respect they deserve.
