A typical day at Great Ballard School

CLAC days start with a meeting, which everyone attends to learn about the day’s programme ahead and news of upcoming events. The meeting is followed by timetabled English classes until lunchtime, with a short break mid-morning for a drink, snack and catching up with friends.  After lunch, the timetabled programme continues until 3pm with specialist workshops such as filmmaking, photography, yoga, drama, cookery and more.

After workshops, the social programme starts when students can choose from a variety of activities including arts, sports, games and local trips. These are displayed on the Social Programme noticeboard and students sign up for their chosen activities.

Evenings are for big events, famous CLAC games such as the Scary Walk, Cluedo, parties, campfires and other activities that involve the whole course. Everyone is included.

The Activity Programme provides an opportunity for students to relax, meet up with their friends and practise their English through fun activities. Every afternoon after classes there are sports, excursions and events that make the most of what CLAC and the surrounding area have to offer.  The programme is designed to appeal to different personalities and to not only interest, but also include everyone.

Each evening the Social Team arranges group challenges and tournaments, as well as CLAC quiz nights, discos and parties to entertain and involve all of the Great Ballard students. There is always something happening for all of our students to be take part in. We also understand that some free time is desired and this is included in the programme.

Accommodation is full board with breakfast, lunch, dinner, break-time refreshments and evening hot chocolate. The food on CLAC courses is cooked on-site and is homely and plentiful. There are two hot choices at both lunch and dinner, a vegetarian option and a salad bar with bread and fresh fruit.

We are also able to cater to individual dietary requirements such as allergies and intolerances if notified in advance.

Bedrooms and bathrooms are separate for boys and girls. Students are placed with similar age groups and mixed nationalities in bedrooms from 2 to 6 students, in order to encourage new friendships and maximise English speaking.

All rooms are comfortable and clean with plenty of storage and hanging space for each student. Bathroom and showering facilities are well situated for easy access throughout the accommodation areas.

There are always enough facilities for everyone. Included in the fees is a personal laundry service and also bed linen, which is changed once a week.
