Some activities should be in scheduled groupes, a mix between different nationalities, to prevent from forming groups like "the french people", "the chinese" etc.

PCs in this school are always full with students and they were sometimes broken, so it is better to bring your own PC if you are going to stay for long.

Overall, the school has met my expectations in all key areas; infrastructure, level of education, school environment, family,... Colchester is also a great city. Not very big but it has everything you may need. It's very well connected and has many tourist spots to visit. The beach is 20 minutes far by train.
