The British Council is the UK’s official organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations. We organise English summer courses for children and young adults in Milan in June, July, the end of August and September.

For primary school children there is a summer camp at the Centro Sportivo San Carlo, Corso Magenta 71, Milan, in addition to English you can also add on an afternoon of sport and games so the children can either spend just the morning with us or the whole day with us.

For middle school or secondary school students we organise two-week intensive courses in the mornings from 9.30 till 12.30 at our premises in Via Manzoni 38, Milan. This is the summer format the British Council has developed over the last few years to meet the needs of students and families: a mini full-immersion in the English language which gets the youngsters actively involved and is interesting and effective.

Where are the courses held?

  • Summer Camp for the primary school: at the Collegio San Carlo, Corso Magenta 71, Milano
  • Intensive courses for middle school and secondary school students: British Council, Via Manzoni 38, Milano


Primary school children are split in to two age groups (children that have finished the first and second year; children that have finished the third, fourth and fifth) as well as according to their linguistic level. The children will do three hours of lessons every morning, from 9.00 till 12.00 with a highly qualified teacher. Apart from the English course, you can also add lunch and games and sports activities in the gym and swimming pool in the afternoon. These activities will be conducted in Italian by the San Carlo sports centre staff.
