Extension Class Programme

School shapeRecognising the benefits of learning in a classroom environment, classes are also held on a part-time basis through our Extension Class Programme at Study Weekends and short-term Study Breaks. These are excellent opportunities to grow in our knowledge and understanding of God’s word in the company of fellow, like-minded disciples of Jesus.

Classes are open to all, but they also provide an opportunity for students to work towards a British Bible School certificate. Students wanting to do this should first enrol with the School by completing an Enrolment Form. You will then need to complete a brief Module Registration Form for each Module you wish to study.

With the ability to ‘mix-and-match’, students may access the curriculum through our Online Extension Programme, our Distance Learning Programme or through our Extension Classes – or a combination of all three – and work towards one of our British Bible School awards.

What is a Study Weekend?

Study Weekends provide opportunities for students and others to take part in short periods of instruction in a group, classroom-based setting. Usually commencing on a Friday evening and running throughout the day on Saturday, students can expect a fast-paced, intensive approach, covering a significant amount of material from a selected module.

Standard Modules require two Study Weekends to complete – usually about a month apart – with additional assignments offered as part of our Applied Biblical Studies course and to progress towards a British Bible School award. In order to qualify for Module credit, students are generally required to have attended all the sessions during the event.

If you have recently attended a Study Weekend and wish to undertake the additional assignments, please complete a Module Registration Form. If you do not yet have details of the assignments, these will be sent to you.

What is a Study Break?

Study Breaks take the classroom experience a little further by providing students with the opportunity of studying an entire module within a highly-focused, classroom-based environment away from the cares of the world. Lasting from three to five days, these breaks provide opportunities for students to build helpful relationships within a healthy spiritual environment whilst working towards a British Bible School award.

Study Breaks are generally limited to a maximum of 15 students, and costs are dependent upon location and length of break.

Available modules

Both Study Weekends and Study Breaks allow us to offer any module within our curriculum, though preference is given to those not currently available through our Distance Learning Programme.
