Amazing places on your doorstep


One of the great things about our centres is their location right in the heart of England. This means we can really explore some amazing places. Students get to visit some of the most historical and famous places in the country including London, Oxford, Cambridge and Stratford-upon-Avon.

Our aim is to make the excursions as fun and educational as possible and so for every trip we have special written lessons, delivered by our teachers, to explain what will be seen and done during the trip.
