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.

Canterbury is an excellent location for this. It’s a small vibrant city and has an exciting selection of things to see and do all within easy reach of one another. The Anglo programme includes half-day visits to the famous Canterbury Cathedral and the Beaney House of Art and Knowledge, and students also get plenty of opportunity to explore the cobbled streets with their attractive boutiques and cafes.

At the weekend, we go a bit further afield and there are full-day excursions to London and Leeds Castle, amongst others. All travel is by private coach, and there is the option to have a travel card and use the Tube in London, if desired.

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.
