MORE THAN JUST ENGLISH

Social life and activities at Loxdale

An exciting social and cultural calendar … it’s not all work!

At Loxdale we offer our students a fantastic social programme. We make sure you have every opportunity to socialise with your fellow students and enjoy a wonderful social life. You will also get to know the teaching staff outside the classroom environment.

On-site facilities

Out of the summer, the School pavilion and sports hall (both on the School site) are open for students to use Monday to Thursday in the evenings, between 17:30 and 21:00.  Here you can play pool, table tennis, board games, sports, watch TV or a DVD or just relax and chat to friends in a comfortable common room. We encourage our students also join local sports teams, clubs, societies or choirs.

*This facility is not available for adults during the summer.

Afternoon activities

Various activities are organised by our Social Manager such as sports competitions, visits to local museums, arts and crafts, baking, and local trips to Beachy HeadLewesDevil’s Dyke and Rottingdean where you can enjoy a traditional English cream tea.

 

Evening activities

Each week there are at least two evening activities organised in conjunction with the School staff. These may include games evenings, barbecues, sports activities, class events, film nights, quizzes, wine and cheese evenings, traditional English barn dances and many more.

The majority of these activities are free but may in some cases be charged £1 – £12.

Weekend Trips

Each term students have the opportunity to take part in a variety of different weekend trips. Some are free and others cost between £10 and £25. Throughout the year we also offer additional trips which are more expensive, these include trips to Paris, the Warner Brothers – Harry Potter Studio Tour and Thorpe Park.

Students also have an opportunity of visiting Chartwell (home of Sir Winston Churchill), Salisbury and Stonehenge, Portsmouth, Cambridge, Oxford, Bath, Lewes and many more towns and cities in the area.

Trips To London

Trips To London

There are a range of trips available to London. Amongst the various options, students get the opportunity to visit The British MuseumThe National GalleryThe Tate BritainThe Tate ModernThe Natural History Museum and The Science Museum.

 

Students studying for the whole term visit London on a cultural visit as part of their course fee.  In the morning, students visit the Natural History Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum or the Science Museum.  In the afternoon they either go on a South Bank tour, visit the Imperial War Museum, visit the Houses of Parliament or the National Portrait Gallery.

The Local Community

A number of our students also join local sports teams, clubs, societies or choirs. This gives you an excellent opportunity to meet more local people and to practise their English in a natural setting.  At Loxdale we are always happy to help you find an appropriate group if we can.
