Each weekend, participants staying for 2 weeks or more can participate in organised excursions supervised by our staff.
On Saturdays, students go to an amusement park, while Sundays are dedicated to tours of nearby English cities (Brighton, Bath, Bournemouth, Cambridge…). London is also possible on request, in particular for non-European students and at extra cost. Group leaders supervise the group and animate the outings but will not assume the functions of official guides during the visits and the London tour in particular.
Upon these trips, students should make sure to have some pocket money available for possible entry fees and other expenses (shopping, souvenirs, etc). Younger students of 9-12 years have non-stop supervision during the excursions. Students of 12-14 years can have some free time on their own but must be every hour at the meeting point designated by the group leaders to make sure they are under control. Older students of 15-16 years have 2 hours of free time.
Our staff conduct evening activities designed to allow students of similar ages to socialise and have a good time. The majority of these activities are on the school grounds and include activities such as "Crazy Olympics", fashion evenings, "Coach Hunt", "Race Night", casino nights, karaoke, cabaret, "Blind Date" and at the end of the week, an evening of "international disco".
For campers ages 15-16, our staff also organises several off-site activities like cinema, ice-skating and pizza parties. Students should have some pocket money for these activities (about £30 a week).
Our three music centres have rehearsal spaces and a recording studio, and IT suite, as well as also modern classrooms, sports facilities, games areas and a theatre.
