Founded in 1985.

CLAC was founded in 1985 with the idea of bringing together overseas and British students for an international summer course experience with a focus on natural language exchange and friendship. It is an idea that is still at the heart of CLAC and drives what we do today.

From the start CLAC has operated like a family both in terms of management and the atmosphere of its summer schools.


CLAC is owned and run by the George family. The business has grown over the last 35 years, but the management is committed to remaining small enough to keep a family feel and providing personal attention to its students.

The George family make it their priority to ensure that CLAC retains everything that has made it special for so many years. If you ever have any concerns, you are always able to speak to someone personally, giving you assurance that your needs will be met by those who make the decisions.

What makes CLAC different
