Cambridge Scholars' Programme:
Apply to study at Cambridge for 3 weeks Dear J P White, The Cambridge Scholars' Programme is a summer school based in Cambridge, set up and run by Cambridge graduates to allow intelligent students aged 14-18 to have the opportunity to live and study in a Cambridge college for three weeks. There are a variety of courses taught by our experienced tutors, trips to explore the cultural heritage of the UK, and social activities - from rowing to Scottish country dancing to a Graduation Ball. We would like you to give the students at Bedford Modern School the opportunity to apply for this summer. Intelligent students attend from across the world, but especially from the US and UK. This year it runs from Thursday 18th July to Wednesday 7th August.
Would your students be interested? There are no costs unless a place is secured. Request a brochure for your students today.

Our brochure, full of photos and comments from last year, can be downloaded from our website here. Independent testimonials can be found on the Phillips Academy website here. (Phillips Academy is one of the oldest, richest and most prestigious private schools in America.)
Study in Cambridge We run ten days of classes, going beyond the normal school curriculum to offer subjects such as Cosmology, Debate, Criminal & Forensic Psychology, and Marine Biology. Students can pick up to three courses to take. Nearly all courses are taught by experienced educators with links to the University of Cambridge - either graduating from Cambridge or in many cases academics teaching at the university. The courses will help to prepare your students for university life. The full range of courses available is here.
What people say...
Explore Britain We run seven trips to explore the famous museums, palaces and cathedrals of Great Britain enjoying tours of Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament, climbing St Paul's Cathedral, visiting Stonehenge and the Roman Baths, going on the London Eye, enjoying a cruise down the Thames, exploring the British Museum, visiting Windsor Castle and Oxford and going to a West End play (amongst others!). It's likely that your students will have done some of these - they can then gain valuable leadership experience by helping to lead the students who have never been.
"I received an offer to study Law at the University of Cambridge and I really do believe that the confidence and skills that I gained at CSP were crucial in my successful Cambridge application." - Joe T, TWGSB, UK
Activities to Have Fun We want your students to have a great time during their summer holiday, so we offer a variety of activities. In the afternoon they can take either rowing, choir, Battle of the Bands or rehearse a Shakespeare play. We also organise activities to keep them busy in the evenings from an Icebreaker Party, Sports Day, cinema trip, punting, a private evening at a Cambridge night club, and more. Sports fields and tennis courts are available on site, and our common room will contain board games, darts, table tennis, table football, pool, air hockey and a 55" 3D TV and Playstation 3. By the end of the three weeks your students will be upset at having to leave!
I got an offer to study PPE at Oxford and CSP definitely helped. The classes generally encouraged me to think independently and present my own ideas to the group." - Oli B, Sir Roger Manwood's School, UK
Optional Trip to Paris We run an optional trip to Paris after the main Programme ends, from Wednesday 7th August to Tuesday 13th August, with further cultural and social benefits. We stay at a hotel near the Eiffel Tower, and visit the cultural and historic sites in and near Paris - the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, Notre Dame, Sacre-Coeur, the Palace of Versailles, Monet's Gardens and more. We enjoy views of the Eiffel Tower from a variety of locations around the city and go to the top, and also have a fun day out at Disneyland Paris. Although your students won't need to know any French to enjoy the trip, it can give many opportunities to practice their French if they wish! More information about Paris is here.
"I'm sure that CSP helped me get into Yale this year. I met amazing people, learned from inspirational teachers, delevoped as a person and had an incredible time." - Naveen K, St Mary's Hall, TX, USA
The Safety of Your Students While we want your students to have a great time, learn a lot, broaden their horizons and make new friends from around the world, our overriding concern is their safety. We have a zero tolerance policy on drugs and alcohol, accommodation is segregated by gender, and students are split into small groups of 6-8 who are led by University of Cambridge students or graduates on trips. These group leaders are a useful resource to learn about the University of Cambridge, the colleges, subjects and applying.
Costs Over half our students last year came from America so the website lists prices in US dollars. British students get a discount, allowing them to come for just £3500 for three weeks. Financial aid is available for students who can't afford the full price, but is competitive.
"CSP boosted my confidence as I was continually encouraged to take part in activities that I would never have considered outside of CSP. I now row for my local club!" - Samantha JM, Truro School, UK
This includes accommodation at Newnham College of the University of Cambridge, breakfast every day, dinner while in Cambridge, classes, most activities (rowing is an additional £200), and transport and entry to the places we visit on trips. Paris is £995, including accommodation for six nights, transport to and from Cambridge, and entry to all the places we visit. We encourage your students to apply as soon as possible, as places are limited. We will therefore offer a £300 discount for those who apply within one week of you receiving this email, £200 within two weeks, and £100 within three weeks. Applications are made on the website.
How to Benefit Your Students
"I fell in love with Paris. We got to experience some of the most inspirational sights and sounds that the city has to offer. The Paris trip was one of the highlights of CSP." - Brooke C, The Loomis Chaffee School, CT, USA
If we think your students are intelligent, ambitious and open to new cultures we'll award them a place, and they will:
