Extracurricular

Since September 2018 we have been offering Italian Language and culture courses organised with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and in collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in London.

Our extracurricular Italian courses are aimed at all the children attending Primary and Secondary School years in London and the South of England and run in more than 40 venues.

COVID-19 UPDATE

All our courses will start online in September 2020.

The current situation due to COVID-19 makes any long-term planning quite difficult. Most of the venues will not be available for hire until January 2021, while some of the others prefer to wait and see what happens in the Autumn before accepting any future bookings.

Despite this, our courses will start without delay in September.
All our lessons will be delivered online for the time being.

We will consider returning to face-to-face lessons once the venues become available, if this appears to be a safe option for your children and our staff.

We will issue a 10% refund for each lesson delivered online at the end of each term.

Find the right course for your child

Designed for children attending primary schools (from Y1 to Y6), our courses are aimed at inspiring a love for the Italian language and culture.
Through fun and creative activities led by qualified teachers, children will have the chance to improve their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.

Designed for Y7, Y8 and Y9 children.
Tailored to the needs and interests of pre-teens, these courses provide basic knowledge of the Italian language for beginners and would also benefit more fluent students by deepening their understanding of the Italian language and culture.

Ideally offered to Y10 and Y11 pupils, but open to Y9 as well, these courses are aimed at preparing students for Italian GCSE exams via a curriculum based on AQA, EDEXCEL or CAMBRIDGE IGCSE specifications. They also provide the opportunity to develop linguistic skills and to obtain a solid base ahead of studying A-LEVELs.

Dedicated to Y12 and Y13 students, but opened to Y11 as well, these courses provide a pleasant learning experience of the Italian language and culture through the study of literature, cinema and history of Italy and other Italophone regions.
The programme is based on EDEXCEL specification and prepares the students for higher education or work.

Locations and duration

Courses run in more than 40 venues in London and the South of England and are mainly held in schools, outside the normal school hours.
A school year will start every September and will end in June for a total amount of 33 weeks of lessons.

We strongly recommend that students join the course at the start, but we are happy to accommodate different needs.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation all our extracurricular courses will start online in September 2020.
Please make sure to enrol your child onto the course running in your local area: this will allow your child to attend the course with no disruption when we are able to go back to face-to-face lessons.
