Exciting, dedicated, current and engaging topic-based classes

Workshop classes for 1 hour and 15 minutes after lunch are included in the course fees.  These are topic-based classes, designed specifically for CLAC students to motivate them to practise their English through an interest-based subject, enhancing their range of English skills in an interesting way.

The different classes offer a perfect chance to learn new expertise and allow students to benefit from natural opportunities to use English, increase their confidence and therefore accelerate their progress. We have chosen subjects that are exciting, engaging and current.  Students choose each morning from a variety of workshops e.g. Filmmaking, Yoga, Photography, Drama, Cooking and more.

Students will be taught by a BAFTA award-winning filmmaker to produce, film, direct and edit a short film or music video using the very latest 4K broadcast camera equipment.  Depending on the project, elements of photography, acting, and dance may included, utilising all the talents students may have.  The finished project will be shown at the end of the week and made available to parents via the CLAC website.

Our qualified Yoga Teacher, who specialises in practical yoga and meditation classes specifically for children and teenagers, teaches yoga techniques and how to appreciate life through mindfulness.  Classes also include essential oils, smoothie making, juicing and making healthy snacks.  Perfect for all students, male and female, to complement sport, study and relaxation.

Football Academy

Led by professional coaches from Premier League football club Brighton and Hove Albion.  Classes are part fitness, skills, tactics and training matches, using modern training methods to suit the level of the students.  The classes are for all levels and are fully inclusive, as per the club’s ethos:  “We believe that football is for everyone, regardless of their age, ability or background.”

Dance and Drama

Students will be shown professional techniques to develop their skills and talents.  Professional teachers will use modern, contemporary and street dance, as well as musical drama, to quickly enable students to perform short pieces.  They will be able to exercise their creativity through the actual performances, which may be recorded for the whole course.
