                    WEEKENDS
                    Excursions are a mandatory part of the programme.
                    We offer students the opportunity to visit places of

                    for sightseeing, shopping and amusement.

                    Wednesdays
                    Wednesday trips are a half-day afternoon/evening visit
                    and involve visiting a local place of interest in a nearby
                    town or an off-site activity, such as:
                    Country Park                   Pier
                    Forest                         Pottery Painting

                    a cultural, touristic or recreational visit to London
                    or another place of interest such as:

                    Sunday excursions are often more relaxing trips to a
                    local seaside town, such as Brighton or Portsmouth,
                    where students can walk along the beach, have lunch
                    in the park or do some shopping. Sometimes students
                    will take part in off-site activities.

                    On selected weekends, excursions will include an
                    overnight stay in London in accommodation suitable
                    for school groups.
