From the magic and mystery of nearby Stonehenge to the bustle and culture of the Roman city of Bath, to the majestic beauty of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, the schools are surrounded by interesting places to visit. 

Excursions are arranged for each age group to provide an enjoyable mix of sightseeing, shopping and culture. They are prepared in class to help pupils get the most from the places they visit.

A day trip to London is included for pupils on our course for 14 – 17 year olds who stay for four weeks.
