"Over the past year we have hosted some delightful students from across Europe and Asia. ELAC have always been reliable in keeping us fully informed of arrangements, the programme itself and any changes that become necessary. The staff are unfailingly friendly, helpful and efficient and payment for hosting is always prompt."

"I was excited! I liked everything - the school, programme and the family I stayed with. That is why I wanted to thank you and the whole team for good job! 🙂 The only thing I did not like at all was that I had to leave at the end... :)"

Jason Harrison

Centre Manager
“I’ve worked for ELAC since 2012 and every Spring, I begin to feel excited about coming back again for another summer of hard, but rewarding, work. What l like most about ELAC is the family-feel that exists. Despite running a number of centres throughout the UK, ELAC retains the support networks and personal development opportunities that you would expect to find in a much smaller business. The days genuinely fly by, and before you realise it, the summer has ended and it’s time to say goodbye to all the new friends you’ve made from all over the world. I honestly can’t recommend ELAC highly enough.”

Kevin Reid

Assistant Centre Manager
“Working for Elac is a life enhancing and transferrable experience. Over the past couple of years Elac has given me opportunities to develop my teaching, management and people skills in an international and exceptionally cultural environment. Ultimately, Elac has brought about some of the best memories of my life!”

Ellie Fruhauf

Activity Manager
“ELAC has been a major part of my life for 3 years now, enabling me to spend my summers working but enjoying myself at the same time. The opportunities, people and cultures involved in the course are really something special – and not to mention all the fun to be had!”

Katie O’Brien

Activity Leader
“I like how ELAC is different every day. You’re constantly surprised by the kids. It has also given me the opportunity to meet people from different countries and cultures that in my regular life I wouldn’t have the opportunity to meet. I also like the atmosphere we have amongst the staff; everyone gets on and helps each other which makes for a very positive and fun environment in which to work.”


Student (France)
“I have done the same summer school with Elac for two years. What is cool is that there are many different nationalities in this camp! We can meet others and exchange about cultures traditions languages. After 2 years I have many friends all around the world like Russian, Italian, Chinese and many others. The Elac activities leaders are cool and friendly. Thank you Elac!”


Student (Greece)
“As a student at ELAC, the things that I enjoy the most is that all the leaders and teachers are always at our disposal and are keen to communicate with us. Furthermore, the lessons are really useful to improve students become more articulate in English. The course is an opportunity for students to broaden their horizons by integrating themselves not only in the British culture but also in other cultures as every year there are students from across the World.”


Group Leader (Mexico)
“Every year we're looking forward to spending some time at Christ’s Hospital. My students love it. The ELAC programme fosters important academic, interpersonal and intrapersonal skills. What I love the most is the staff’s understanding of what a summer camp should be. They cater for everyone’s needs. Definitely, coming back every year is a no-brainer.”
