Activities and Excursions

We aim to localise our leisure programme as much as possible to give students the chance to explore the culture and history on their doorstep.

Guildford is the county town for Surrey. It’s a small vibrant town with its own special character. You will be able to explore the castle, the cathedral and the cobbled streets and alley ways with their boutiques and coffee shops.

Guildford is also an ideal base for exploring London. The train station is a 10-minute walk from the campus and you can be in the centre of London in half an hour.

The Anglo programme includes several half-day trips into the city with a visit to the Sky Garden, museums and walking tours through some of the most popular parts of the city.

At the weekend, you can spend a full day in London, with the chance to do a river cruise to Greenwich too. There is also a full-day excursion to Arundel Castle. Travel is by train and private coach.

In the evenings, there’s the opportunity to participate in talent shows, find new friends in speed dating, play bingo, test your knowledge in the weekly quiz and show off your dance moves at the disco.

Caring and Attentive Teachers and Staff

Our summer team have been selected for their experience in and suitability for working with young people.

Anglo centre mangers are responsible for ensuring the smooth-running of the programme and most have had many years of experience on summer courses.

Quite a few of our teaching staff have worked with us for several summers as well, and have been involved in developing the syllabus by contributing ideas they have tried and tested at centre.

We are also proud that many of our activity team are returners and that some move into management positions, using their experience to make the programme better and safer each year.
