Our Supervision Concept

Your safety and welfare are very important to us, therefore our supervision concept for students in our Summer Language Holidays Programme is based on a compulsory activity programme during afternoons and evenings seven days a week. The cornerstone of this programme are the daily „Time to Talk“ meetings.

Our staff ratio on campus for the age group 13-17 years is 1:15, however supervision groups during activities on or off campus will have different ratios of up 25 students for 13-17 years old depending on the situation.

Daily checks include: wake-up, breakfast, class check, lunch, TTT, activities, dinner, night-check.

13 to 15 year olds

You will participate in a compulsory programme consisting of a large choice of afternoon activities and at least one planned evening activity. During town walks our staff will accompany you into town. You will then have the opportunity to explore the city centre with your friends in pairs or bigger groups for a period of up to two hours.

You will be part of a TTT group of up to 25 students. During TTT, your supervisor will make sure you are signed up for one of our exciting activities in our App so that later on we can make sure you have attended.

Tiverton is also available for teenager aged 10 to 12. Click here for more details

16 to 17 year olds

Students aged 16 and 17 are free to explore things with their friends in pairs (or bigger groups) on and off the campus. Participation in the afternoon programme is voluntary for students over the age of 16. In the afternoons, you can choose between taking part in the offered activity programme or signing out at reception on the campus and exploring the town with international friends. Please bear in mind that when you sign out to go to town, you are required to stay in pairs or larger groups at all times. We normally have a supervisor based in the town centre in case you need them or have any questions. If you do not want to take part in the activity programme, or go to the city centre – you can always stay on campus and relax in our specially designated chill-out zone equipped with cosy bean bags, table tennis tables, football tables, board games and books.

In the evenings, you will not be allowed to leave the campus without supervision, but there will be age-appropriate activities available for 16+ students.

Time to Talk

You will be part of a TTT (Time to Talk) group of up to 25 students. In the lunchtime TTT you tell your supervisor what you want to do in the afternoon and the supervisor will put you in the respective sign-up list which will be checked when the programme starts. The same happens at the dinner time TTT for the evening event.

Blundell's Boarding School in Tiverton

Improve your language skills while being surrounded by international students Tiverton is the largest town in mid Devon and has a small but busy shopping centre. The imposing structure of the parish church dedicated to St. Peter dates from the 15th century and reflects the prosperity brought to the town by the wool trade. It has about 18,000 inhabitants.  It is best known for John Heathcoat, who set up his textile mill there in the 19th century with just a few woollen frames; business flourished and he built nearby Knighthayes Court as his manor house - now a National Trust and open to visitors. Tiverton Castle is in the town centre. Our Campus is around 100-acres in the Devon hills, our Students live, sleep, attend lessons, and participate in fun activities on the Blundell's Campus. This is a place where children thrive, and where they become ready to contribute to a world desperately in need of thoughtful, courageous, and compassionate leaders. This is a place where they will learn about themselves, where they have the opportunity to practise and rehearse the skills that they will need to live fulfilling lives, both now and in the future. Tiverton is also close to the beautiful Devon coast and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Tiverton is the perfect location for a memorable experience.
