Following a trial in August, Forte Village Resort has announced a new collaboration with Oppidan Education, the UK-based mentoring service for children aged 7-18. The resort located in southern Sardinia will offer one-week programmes over half term in May and for two weeks in August next year with a view to extend dates into half term in October.
Unlike tutoring services, Oppidan helps children fulfil their potential through mentoring programmes with four main aims – to improve a child’s confidence and engagement with their learning, to fuel a child’s interest in their learning both in and outside the classroom, to take active ownership of their learning, to manage and resolve personal and pastoral concerns.
The camps held at Forte Village will take place in the mornings and afternoons with the option of booking private sessions. Between sessions, children can enjoy 47 hectares of lush parkland, a pristine white beach and unrivalled legend-run sports academies – from fencing and hockey, to synchronised swimming and football with Chelsea FC.
