Visits and Excursions

Brooke House’s excellent location in the heart of England means that our students are able to visit most of the major attractions that the country has to offer. There are full-day excursions on Saturday and Sunday and a half-day excursion each Wednesday. Our programme provides a unique blend of educational, cultural and recreational trips and, of course, our students always find a little time to shop for those essential souvenirs, presents and treats. Pre-trip briefings in the classroom ensure that each and every student is aware of the relevance of a particular destination and work sheets and organised tours make sure that our students obtain the fullest possible benefit from the outings. Here is the excursion schedule for Summer School 2017.
