& Excursions

We have many excursions during the summer courses. Every week there are two trips for all students to enjoy along with additional optional trips that students can sign up for. These trips can be to local towns, cities or places of interest.

On Wednesday afternoons there is a half day excursion to the local towns of Shrewsbury or Telford. At the weekend the students attend a full day excursion to places such as Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Chester or Liverpool. The locations of our excursions may change throughout the course in response to information shared by our national security forces.

There are various additional optional trips arranged such as a visit to the university cities of Cambridge or Oxford or William Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-Upon-Avon. All students enjoy a full day at a Theme Park such as Alton Towers or Drayton Manor.  We also arrange optional theatre trips, museum visits and heritage trips for example to Severn Valley Railway.
