Social and cultural activities

On-site activities

We organise a range of on-site activities, which can include: arts & crafts; swimming; football; basketball; mini Olympics; team building games; cricket; treasure hunts; photography, and more! Students are placed in groups according to their age for the majority of our on site activities, to ensure fair and full participation.

Day trips

Students will enjoy one or two full day excursions plus one half day excursion each week, depending on their programme. We also organise other activities and local visits to places of historic and cultural interest throughout the week. Please see our individual programme pages for more details and sample timetables.

Evening activities

We keep our students busy with a fun-packed schedule of evening activities such as quizzes, movie nights, discos, talent shows, and team building games. Evening activities are included for all students on residential programmes. One optional evening activity per week is available to homestay students, for a small supplement.
