Social Programme

Outside the classroom students will take part in afternoon activities , excursions, and evening entertainment. There will be a wide variety of activities on offer during the afternoons, with larger activities for the whole school in the evenings.


Afternoon Activities

During the afternoons, students will be given a choice of activities, from outdoor and indoor sports to arts and crafts and swimming. No need to sign up in advance for these activities. All of these activities take place on site and take advantage of the excellent sports facilities here at St Edmund’s. The students have use of a gym, swimming pool, football pitch, badminton courts, tennis courts an Astroturf and more!

Evening Entertainment

In the evening, the whole summer school will come together for unforgettable evening entertainment. These could include trips out of the College to places like the bowling alley or the cinema. They could also be exciting on site events, such as a silent disco or a talent show. On excursion days, evening activities will be a more relaxed event, such as a movie night, or a summer fete in the College grounds.


One of the most integral parts of a summer school is the off-site excursions! In recognition of this, we offer more included excursions than ever before, with each 2 week course consisting of 5 full day excursions, all included in the course fee.
