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.

Cardiff is the capital of Wales. It’s a vibrant, cosmopolitan city but still retains its historic charm as a former trading port. Much of the waterfront area, known as Cardiff Bay, has been redeveloped, and is now buzzing with shops and restaurants.

It’s an excellent starting point for exploring the beautiful South Wales coastline and also sneaking back into England for a quick visit!

The Anglo programme includes half-day visits to Cardiff Castle, Bristol and the former coal-mining community of Blaenavin with a tour of Big Pit.

At the weekend, we go a bit further afield and there are full-day excursions to Bath and Tenby, with the opportunity to visit the magnificent Pembroke Castle.

After 11 nights in Cardiff, you will be transferred to our London Brentford centre by private coach, and spend 2 days exploring the famous attractions in the nation’s capital. Travel into and around London is either by overland train or the Tube.

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.
