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.

York is perfect for this!

It’s home to one of the most visited cathedrals in the UK, the famous Castle Museum, and the National Rail Museum. You can also shop along the Shambles, a cobbled street which dates back to medieval times. York is also ideally situated for exploring thebeautiful county of Yorkshire, with its impressive dales, stone walls and quaint villages.

The Anglo programme includes half-day visits to York Minster, Harrogate and Rippon.

At the weekend, we go a bit further afield and there are full-day excursions to York (including Castle Museum), Castle Howard, Scarborough and Durham/Newcastle. 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.

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.
