Music sessions are organised so as to help students to Develop their personal and social skills

It is advised to have some familiarity with one musical instrument or singing (at least 1 year of experience). Workshops are divided into Small groups with a maximum of 8 participants per group.

Classes are taught by experienced, professional musicians. Workshops include musical games, music composition with added lyrics, recording and improvisation. At the end of each week students perform in a concert for the whole school.

Particular attention is paid to popular contemporary music (pop music, rock, funk, soul and jazz). Classes aim at developping individual creativity and working within a group to gain experience in playing with others. Students can choose between practicing a musical instrument or singing.

It is possible to rent instruments (between £30 and £80 depending on the instrument) during the stay, but it is recommended that each student brings his own instrument (whenever possible).

Activities

Our staff conduct evening activities designed to allow students of similar ages to socialise and have fun. The majority of these activities are on the school grounds and include activities such as “Crazy Olympics”, fashion evenings, “Coach Hunt”, “Race Night”, Casino nights, Karaoke, Cabaret, “Blind Date” and an “international disco” at the end of the week, .

For participants ages 15-16, the camp staff also organise several off-site activities like cinema, ice-skating and pizza parties. Students should have some pocket money for these activities (about £30 per week).

Excursions

Each weekend, participants staying for 2 weeks or more can participate in organised excursions supervised by our staff.

On Saturdays, students go to an amusement park, while Sundays are dedicated to tours of nearby English cities (Brighton, Bath, Bournemouth, Cambridge…). London is also possible on request, in particular for non-European students and at extra cost. Group leaders supervise the group and animate the outings but will not assume the functions of official guides during the visits and the London tour in particular.

Upon these trips, students should make sure to have some pocket money available for possible entry fees and other expenses (shopping, souvenirs, etc). Younger students of 9-12 years have non-stop supervision during the excursions. Students of 12-14 years can have some free time on their own but must be every hour at the meeting point designated by the group leaders to make sure they are under control. Older students of 15-16 years have 2 consecutives hours of free time.
