Concord is also known for the warmth of its community and the care and attention given to each individual student.
Our University Preparation Summer Courses run concurrently with the existing well-established international Summer Course.

We particularly welcome applications from Concord Main School Aulmni.
Course Assistants will report to the Student Futures Officer and will also be supported by the experienced Summer School Management and Pastoral Teams.
