'Virtus Omnia Vincit' - Courage conquors all

"We have great pleasure to recommend summer courses for children at the Holme Park School in Kendal... the school should be especially recommended for younger children....This is a private family school, where children feel like in their own homes. Friendly, home-like atmosphere ease learning and making new friendships. Daily 3-hour English lessons are making grammar easy for your children."

Beat and Rafal W. Warsaw

Kilgraston School



Founded 1953

The Holme Park Language School for younger students, known as ‘The Holme Park Experience’, opened at Holme Park in 1997. In the autumn of 2007 it re-located to the stunning surroundings of Kilgraston School, Bridge of Earn.

Kilgraston lies within easy reach of Edinburgh, Scotland’s cosmopolitan and historic capital city. From here, our already extensive programme of activities has been developed considerably, allowing us to offer our students many new and exciting opportunities.

About Holme Park School

The aim of the Holme Park English language study holidays is to offer a unique opportunity for younger students, boys and girls, aged 8-14, to study English at their appropriate level, whilst enjoying an exciting, challenging and fun holiday abroad. We want all our students to return home happy, content and with their confidence in their English skills much more secure than when they arrived!

Learning English at Holme Park School

Holme Park provides young overseas students with a perfect environment in which to learn English. Our programme encourages students to improve their English ability by giving them every opportunity to enhance their communication skills. The chance to mix with native English speakers and take part in a varied programme of cultural, sporting and fun activities, both on and off-site, helps to make the Holme Park Experience a truly unique and memorable holiday for all our visitors.

Sample Itineraries

We offer short term courses of 2-8 weeks in the summer, 2-3 weeks in March –April and short 10-day courses in February and October. Our activity / excursion programme is extensive and exciting. It is largely through this side of the Holme Park Experience that we aim to instil in all our students the belief that learning English is a great thing to do! Please see our sample itinerary for a two, four or six week course.
