Our mission is to ensure each student is encouraged to realise their full potential during the course , by exploring the limits of their ability and learning to thrive outside their own comfort zone.
We aim to ensure that all aspects of the course provides a rich educational experience – whether this is improving their English in the classroom, interacting with the local community or in personal development through outdoor pursuits, teambuilding activities and our cultural excursions. We provide a range of opportunities that allow students to develop existing talents and discover new passions.
Each student becomes well-known to our staff, who in return expect our students to seize the opportunities on offer or, better still, create new ones.

As well as our ‘Student of the Week’ Awards, we will also be offering students the opportunity to win SPIRIT awards – anyone who displays the skills above will be able to win this additional prize.
