Activities, Sports and Excursions


Afternoon Activities 

We organise sports, cultural and social activities every afternoon and evening so that you can have fun, make new friends, and practise your English outside of the classroom. During the activity programme, you will have a chance to mix with with children from other classes.

Excursions and Cultural Visits

We organise 2 excursions per week (except in your departure week when you will have one excursion).  We take students off campus to visit different cities and cultural destinations across the south of England. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, we organise full-day excursions (09:00 - 17:30). The Wednesday excursions are language experience days and as such include a strong educational focus.

On Sundays, there is an optional excursion (11:15 - 17:45) to local towns and attractions including shopping trips to Basingstoke, bowling or a visit to Birdworld.  There is a small charge for the Sunday excursion of £25.00 - £35.00 per student, depending on the destination and activity. You can also choose to stay on campus instead and participate in whole school activities such as a treasure hunt or swimming.

Full-day excursion destinations include:

  • London
  • Oxford
  • Portsmouth
  • Winchester
  • Windsor Castle
  • Thorpe Park                 

 Optional excursion destinations include:
