What does a northern Scottish airport filled with hundreds of excited youngsters mean? Invariably that the annual Gordonstoun International Summer School is about to begin! Children aged 8 to 16 from 37 different countries meet each summer for a three week course which includes language tuition, sport, arts, crafts and a five day yachting cruise around the Western Isles. And unlike most summer language courses, this prestigious summer course also has a fair share of native English speakers! From the feedback we’ve received, we know that the participants enjoy the summer of their lifetimes and make friendships that last just as long.
