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.

Our Stirling centre is the perfect base for exploring both the cities and the highlands of Scotland. Stirling city centre is only 2 miles away, and Edinburgh and Glasgow are within easy reach. However, with its surroundings of hills and forests, the campus makes you feel as if you’re already in the highlands.

The Anglo programme includes half-day visits to Stirling and Edinburgh. At the weekend, there are full-day trips to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Loch Lomond and the Callander and Fort William, via Glen Coe. It’s a stunning itinerary. All travel is by 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 and ceilidh.

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.
