You will learn English through sports, activities and excursions

Each week you will have a full programme of sports, activities and excursions. To make sure that everyone has fun we make sure that we have a wide variety of sports for you to choose from. We also use the best watersports centre in Exeter so that you are in the hands of their professional instructors at no extra cost. You will have qualified instructors and referees for Tennis, Basketball, Football, Yoga, Wall climbing and more!
We also include activities for students who are more interested in history and culture – a favourite is always a visit to our beautiful cathedral with a Devonshire Cream tea in the Cloisters or a visit to the underground passages in Exeter!

We want you to feel that you are learning English even when you are having fun and are always looking to improve your social programme.
