Off-site excursions are an important part of the Summer School experience.
Our academic session content is linked to our weekly excursion venues. Additionally, most weekday afternoons and evenings some of our students will go to fun local venues.
We have 3 main types of off-site excursions that students can enjoy:
- Full-day excursions happen twice a week and all students attend these. Some are educational, and include trips to museums, zoos, stately homes or historic castles. Others are for sight-seeing, and typically include trips to local tourist attractions, theme parks and shopping centres.
- Local excursions are part of the Afternoon Activity Sessions and involve trips to fun local venues such as cinemas, ice rinks, go-karting, bowling alleys and crazy golf. These are attended by smaller groups and students can sign-up for these a few days in advance.
- Middle weekend excursions are only for students staying longer than 3 weeks and is an overnight trip to a local adventure sports site. This takes place while students from the July programme travel home and students from the August programme arrive.
Examples of excursions include:

During off-site excursions, older students (14+ years) have more freedom to explore, with pre-arranged check-in points, while younger students are continually supervised by our staff.
