The programme of social activities at both schoolsprovides an opportunity for students to relax, practise their English and have fun. Every afternoon after classes students have the independence to choose what they would like to take part in.
Students can decide between a huge variety of sports, art based activities, and trips to local attractions. Due to great locations of both of our centers there are plenty of activities to choose from such as trampolining, historic walks, go-karting, visits to the theatre, cinema and much more.
Once a week there is a full day excursion. Typically, students visit London, Cambridge, Oxford, Brighton, or Portsmouth. This full day outing allows students to experience the magic of some of the major cities in the UK.
Students can choose between sightseeing activities and specific visits for example going on the London Eye, or visiting an impressive museum, there is always some time for shopping for souvenirs too! Some of these activities may have a charge but there will always be a free activity available at the same time.
Students choose a supervised activity in the morning such as a sightseeing tour or visit to a museum or place of interest. In the afternoon supervised free time is given for shopping or more sightseeing as students wish. A free packed lunch is provided.
CLAC also offers a variety of sporting, cultural and leisure excursions for a minimal extra charge. Popular examples include: Sightseeing, Shopping trips to nearby towns, Cinema, Theatre, Paintballing.
Through this experience, students are able to develop courage as they take risks, strength while displaying finesse, competitive intensity while exhibiting generosity of spirit, and mental as well as physical endurance. While the focus is to facilitate the development of each student’s athletic potential, the greater hope is to instill motivation to continue lifelong physical activity.
The on-site sports programme typically includes a selection of: Cricket, Swimming, Tennis, Badminton, Volleyball, Football, Rounders, Basketball, Aerobics. All of these activities are included in the course fees whenever they are part of the social programme.
For certain sports, students may need to be taken off-site to use the facilities in the local area. These will be charged to students at cost price. Examples include: Horse Riding, Indoor Swimming, 10 Pin Bowling. Whenever paying activities are offered, there is always a non-paying alternative.
The aim is to provide a varied programme that will suit all tastes. Whatever a student’s interests, there will always be something to do! The Social Team for each course organises a wide a range of free on-site activities that is available to all students.
A typical social programme includes as many as possible of the following: Team Games, Arts and Crafts, Quizzes, Cookery, Village Walks, Beauty Therapy, Treasure Hunts, Movie and Popcorn Evenings, Drama Activities. CLAC also offers a range of off-site optional activities which are available for an additional charge (cost price).
CLAC days start with a meeting which everyone attends to find out exactly what is happening throughout that day and also other plans for the week. After their meeting students go to their English classes. Students can meet up with their friends at break time after their first classs and then there are two shorter skills classes before lunch.
In the afternoon students choose from the many activities including arts, sports, games and local trips on offer. These are displayed on the Social Programme and students sign up for their chosen actitivies.
