Groups are welcome to contact us at anytime of the year to make an enquiry. However, most of our residential bookings take place during the autumn before the following academic year.
For example, in October 2019, we will be finalising residential bookings for September 2020 to August 2021. Applications go out to schools on our mailing list during September. Schools then have until mid-October to respond with their preferred choice of dates. Leeson House then has the challenging task of arranging the schools into the academic calendar!
Contact us if you would like to be included on our mailing list.
Our accommodation and tuition costs are kept separate because each programme of study is tailor made. Below are example costs only.
An A Level group of 30 students during Summer term 2020 for two nights (3 days)
£56 per student per night (includes all meals except first day lunch) £56 x 2 = £112 Tuition based on one session* per day £172. £172 x 3 days = £516÷30 students = £17.20 each £129.20 per student
A Primary school group of 30 pupils staying for two nights during early Spring term 2020
Starting from £91 per pupil, including accommodation and minimum tuition sessions*.
*A tuition session is either a whole morning, afternoon or evening so potentially three a day and per Leeson House tutor. We charge a minimum of one session a day. Most schools will require more than the minimum charge, and this is calculated during the planning process.
