About our English & Multi Activity Programme
Our English and Multi-Activity programme combines our English language programme, with activities provided by Ultimate Activity Camps, all with local British children. English classes take place during the morning, which includes our hour long Buddy activity integrating our local English speaking students with our international learners. They work together in small groups on a structured communication task fostering the natural development of English language skills.
During the afternoons, a range of activities are offered, suitable for all interests. From sports, through to creative or adventure activities our Ultimate Activity Camps programme ensures that students can choose something they know or try their hand at something completely new, all the time with local English speakers. Our Ultimate Activity leaders are highly trained to ensure students have fun, are safe and get to try new experiences – as well as making sure English is the only language spoken!
We round off each day with our evening activity programme which sees students from all courses come together for larger group games and activities.
Each week our excursions run on a Friday and Sunday taking students to famous cities or popular attractions.
The activities within the timetable change on a weekly basis to ensure students have the opportunity to take part in lots of different activities, choosing more of what they love or trying something new.
Extra Choice Activities
These are perfect for students wanting to add a little extra activity and excitement to their English and Multi Activity Programme. Delivered by qualified instructors at venues specific to the activities, they run for two afternoons per week. These optional extra activities are available every week for all ages and carry an additional cost. Please also note that students will miss the timetabled multi activity sessions whilst taking part in their extra choice activity.
Our venue, Cothill House School has its own 9-hole course so some of this Extra Choice Activity will be based on-site with a visiting Golf Pro. We will however also get students off-site to a full course to put into practice the skills they have learnt. We will help students perfect the fundamental skills including swing, grip, stance and ball position.
Students will be able to see rural England on horseback, riding through the beautiful countryside around Oxford. Led by qualified instructors who are experienced in teaching riders from beginner to advanced level, this Extra Choice Activity is ideal for both the novice rider wanting to do more and the experienced rider looking to further their skills.
Experience the thrill of being in a harness amongst the tall tree tops and go wild on the water in the great outdoors around Oxford.
