Language holidays for young people with music or singing

This programme enables young people aged 10 to 17 to meet other participants from all over the world and develop each student’s musical techniques and creative potential through English lessons, singing workshops and music classes.

Our music/singing centre has rehearsal rooms and a recording studio, a computer room, as well as modern classrooms, sports facilities, play areas and a theatre.

Seaford College (10-17 years)

Seaford College is situated between Brighton to the west and Eastbourne to the east, in the county of East Sussex. The famous Seven Sisters cliffs are on the coast to the east of the town.

The College has seven tennis courts, a nine-hole golf course, a hockey pitch, several football pitches, squash courts, sports halls and an outdoor swimming pool. Local facilities include 9- and 18-hole golf courses, a tennis centre with indoor courts and riding stables.

Capacity: 170 students per week


Standard English music or singing

Per week :

  • 15 English (morning or afternoon)
  • 15h music practice*

Level required: A2

*All instruments accepted.

Language course (15 hours)

At the beginning of their stay, students take a test to determine their knowledge of English and to place them in the appropriate level. The language programme is divided into five different levels and children receive a report card signed by their English teachers at the end of their stay. The minimum level of English is A2 (a minimum of one year’s school English).

The learning of English continues outside the school, as sports and social activities are organised in English.

Classes have an average of 10 students and a maximum of 14.

Minimum language level: 1 year of school English

Music and singing workshops

The music/vocal classes are designed to help students develop their personal and social skills.

It is advisable to already have experience of playing an instrument/singing(at least 1 year of practice). Workshops are given in small groups of a maximum of 8 participants.

Lessons are given by professional, experienced musicians. The workshops include musical games, songwriting and lyrics, recording and improvisation. At the end of each week, the students perform a concert for the whole school.

The emphasis is on contemporary popular music (pop, rock, funk, soul and jazz). The courses are designed to develop both individual creativity and the ability to work with others to learn to play in a group. Young people can choose between playing a musical instrument or singing.

Instruments can be hired (between £30 and £80 depending on the instrument) but it is recommended that you bring your own instrument (wherever possible).

Minimum level: Elementary to Advanced

Evening activities at the Education Centre offer a varied range of events to suit all interests, including dance competitions, friendly Dodgeball competitions and a “Has Got Talent” talent show.

Students can also immerse themselves in cultural diversity at the International Evening, celebrating different cultures through international music, dance and cuisine. Evenings full of laughter and excitement await students, with thrilling treasure hunts to explore the camp and a vibrant social space in the Clubhouse to relax in free time.

Weekend excursions for students staying longer than a week include two full-day outings. Saturday is devoted to more recreational activities such as visits to Alton Towers, Chessington World of Adventures, Legoland, or THORPE PARK.

On Sundays, cultural excursions take students to historic British cities such as Bath, Brighton, Cambridge, Oxford, Portsmouth and Southampton, offering an opportunity to experience British culture, natural attractions and famous monuments.

Permission to leave the country for minors – see below

Visa information

Authorisation to leave the country for minors

Authorisation to leave the country is compulsory for minors who are not accompanied by a parent or guardian. It must be presented by minors at border crossings, together with their identity documents (passport or identity card) and a photocopy of the identity card of one of their parents.


When a minor child travels abroad alone, in the company of persons other than his or her parents, it is necessary to draw up a“parental authorisation” attesting to the parents’ agreement to the trip in question.

This document can be requested from your local council.


Authorisation to leave the country (AST) for a minor unaccompanied by a holder of parental authority has been reinstated since 15 January 2017. The AST forms are available on the Service Public website. Further information: Service Public.

The young unaccompanied minor will therefore need to present the following 3 documents:

  • The minor’s identity document: identity card or passport
  • AST signed by one of the parents with parental authority
  • Photocopy of the identity document of the parent signing
