What we offer

Magnifico has more than 20 years’ experience in the study holiday industry. Magnifico Summer Campuses are run entirely by us and this allows us to:

1. Offer a high-quality product, which guarantees outstanding reliability;
3. Have our own Managers and Staff on site so any problems can be easily solved;
4. Ensure we have a range of students from different countries – Italy, Spain, Portugal, Russia and other European nations and from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Magnifico takes students’ WELFARE and SAFETY extremely seriously and we have built our programmes around the need to provide, first and foremost, a PROTECTIVE ENVIRONMENT for all those who are in our care.

In 2008 we received British Council Accreditation, which was reconfirmed in 2012.
We are very pleased to announce that following our 2016 Inspection by the British Council, Accreditation was again confirmed. On this occasion we were also awarded with seven strengths in the following areas: care of students; care of the under 18’s; staff management; academic management; teaching; premises & facilities, and leisure opportunities. We are very proud of this and it means that you, as a parent or a group leader, can see our commitment to ensuring that everything we do is done to the highest possible standards.

Magnifico Summer Campus Our Summer Programmes

We have 3 different programmes in the UK for the Summer :

In each programme, Magnifico has combined a quality British Council Accredited English Language Course with activities (sports, arts and evening events) and excursions around England. We want our students to improve their English, to have a great time and to provide them with a memorable experience.

Magnifico Summer Campus Magnifico Welfare and Safety

Magnifico is committed to a practice with procedures where safeguarding the welfare of students in our care is of paramount importance. The company’s duty of care to the student is our primary concern and the company accepts its part in recognising its responsibilities. All adults working for Magnifico are expected to share this ethos and to actively engage in looking after under 18s safely.

The welfare and safety of the students is our Number One priority. All our staff receive training regarding the care of students under the age of 18. All our staff are also checked for their suitability to work with students under the age of 18.

How do we manage to provide a safe environment for our students at a Magnifico Campus?

  • All students have an adult as a Group Leader; if a student arrives without a Group Leader a member of the Magnifico staff will be assigned to him or her.
  • Each student is given a Student Handbook containing the rules and regulations of the campus and safety information.
  • Each student takes part in two orientation sessions when they arrive, where they learn about campus rules, local regulations and safety information.
  • On arrival at the campus, students complete a Student Contact Form, which includes their parents' contact details in case of emergencies.
  • Magnifico has an office on campus and Managers and Staff Members live and work on site. Students are given the mobile phone number of the Centre Manager, who will be the students' main contact in all matters regarding their stay with Magnifico.
  • During the summer months our London Office is always manned and someone is available to take calls 24 hours a day.
  • The Universities of Reading and Leicester provide a 24-hour security service, and a CCTV system;
  • Magnifico offers a full programme to all its students, there is no unaccompanied free time and the students are not allowed to leave the campus grounds without a member of Magnifico Staff.
  • Students are accompanied by members of staff on a staff/student ratio of 1:15 or 1:20
  • Magnifico uses a private coach company and not public transport on excursions.
  • All students are issued with an Emergency Card when they go out on an excursion. This tells them what to do if they are lost or if they need help. They can also contact us free of charge by making a reverse charge call and the instructions for doing this are on the card.
  • At night our campuses are patrolled by local security services, and Magnifico Accommodation Staff from 10.30 pm to 2 am.
  • Magnifico provides a campus Doctor.
