More generic courses in English for Work and Business English are also popular throughout the year. The school's Junior programmes run throughout the summer months and are available as fully immersive or day only programmes.

School facilities: The facilities of Burlington School London are excellent, offering everything a student may need to reach their language goals, in a professional and inviting environment. These facilities include a cafeteria, restaurant, computer lab, free after-class access to language learning software, a library, lounge, garden and a student support desk for any questions or queries that may arise.
