That’s why our activities programmes, as well as being fun-filled, offer opportunities for you to practise your English, develop your soft skills and learn about British culture. On this page, you can find out a little more about how we organise your trips and on-site activities, and how they link to your learning.
For many of our students, the trips are the highlight of our programme!
Each trip has a learning theme that we explore during English lessons and then reinforce during the trip. In this way, you are prepared with the knowledge and vocabulary to help you get the most out of your visit, making it a more vivid and memorable experience.
On each trip, our Activity Leaders bring to life the sights of the city with interesting stories and facts, as you discover British culture and attractions first-hand. It’s interactive, too! You will have a specially designed multiple-choice quiz for each trip, so you can practice your English and record what you have learned. At our summer centres these quizzes will be inside your Lewis Passport.
Safety and Welfare on Trips
Your safety and well-being are our top priorities. On all trips, our Activity Leaders accompany you at a ratio of 1:20. All our Activity Leaders are trained in welfare and safety issues and many have qualifications in first aid. We supervise you at all times. We also provide you with a map for each trip and there is a 24-hour telephone number that you can call if you are lost or in difficulty. To find out more about our welfare procedures, visit our Welfare page.
What Will We See and Do?
For each centre, there is a document for you to view online called ‘Your Guide to Trips’ (for Group Leaders, we also provide a printed copy on arrival). This gives you information about all the full-day and half-day trip destinations, including itineraries, themes and any entries included. There is also a brief guide to each of the Optional Sunday trips on offer.
