The most sophisticated March holiday English programmes. Designed with a difference.

Our workshops combine essential writing practice, literary techniques, and personal feedback that channels expertise into your child’s own learning process. All these elements come together to add that undefinable and intangible quality to your child’s personal portfolio – a certain je ne sais quoi, so to speak. In an age of digitalisation and automation, it is more crucial than ever to develop a flourishing personal voice. Our holiday programmes are designed to cater to these quintessential writing and speaking characteristics.

Be smart. Be different.
