A typical day at Slindon College

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.

In the evening is when the big events happen, famous CLAC games such as the Scary Walk, Cluedo, parties, campfires and other activities that involve the whole course. Everyone is included.
