Group Leaders

Our group leaders are recruited both locally and internationally to assist in the day-to-day running of events and activities. Group leaders are also responsible for the student's general well-being and are a direct liaison between students, parents, and the school. Although English is actively promoted amongst students, our team is also able to provide support when needed to students and parents in different languages. Our team is on call 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

Our team consists of Live-in leaders and of Group leaders.

What is the difference?

Live-in leaders will live with you in the residence and cater for anything you might need. They will wake you up for breakfast, make sure you are on schedule for your lessons. Live-ins will always be around for your meal times, and of course during room checks to make sure you are safe in your room and bed for the night.

Group leaders, on the other hand, accompany students during the whole day. From spending time with them in the school, during break times to guiding students and leading the activity programme for them. Activity leaders make sure you enjoy your time here and they also make sure to provide students with support when outside the classroom.

Group leaders are carefully selected from teaching and/or travel backgrounds and are required to have prior qualifications specifically related to the care of minors. We also have qualified first aiders to assist. Some of our most seniors return every year, which has great impact on our overall operations and training of new coming leaders. Our team works perfectly together and provides with fun and safe environment.
