Standard Programme

A social programme full of fun and exciting activities and excursions to famous locations, available to all Twin Summer Centres students.

Standard Programme

  • Visit famous locations such as London, Cambridge and Brighton
  • Visit iconic UK tourist attractions
  • Students can take advantage of being able to stay in the UK
  • Activities are led by fun and enthusiastic Twin staff

Our activity programme at Twin is designed to keep students active and entertained outside of their English language lessons, and is offered at our Leamington Spa, Chichester and Eastbourne Twin Summer Centres. We want to ensure that all students in our English summer schools have a great experience with us. Therefore, we packed our activity programme with daytime activities as well as half-day and full-day excursions to famous locations in the UK. We have a different activity programme in each of our Twin Summer Centres, allowing students to take advantage of what each area offers. The activity programme helps students to experience typical British culture and make new friends.

During the day, students will be kept entertained with local visits, sports activities and scavenger hunts, to name a few. Programmes are designed so that students explore the sites in their chosen study location, but also other popular locations in the UK. Students will go on one full-day excursion per week to key cities such as London, Brighton and Cambridge, to allow them to explore the city, visit famous attractions, and gain some unforgettable memories of amazing places.

Students staying in residential accommodation can also enjoy evening activities seven days a week, with discos, talent contests, cinema nights and quizzes, which will keep them busy!

For students enrolling at the Eltham Summer Centre, we offer a different programme dedicated to exploring London, therefore there would be less daytime activities. Please refer to our Eltham Summer Centre page to learn more.
