Here at Stonyhurst we are committed to delivering an enjoyable learning experience and providing language students with the opportunity to use their newly improved English language skills in practical and interesting ways.

All our programmed excursions (including entrance fees), activities and evening entertainment are included within the course fees. The exceptions to this are the optional extra activities of horse-riding, golf lessons, swimming lessons and clay pigeon shooting.  The cost for these will be £20.00 for swimming lessons, £38.00 for golf, clay pigeon shooting and for horse-riding.  Parents will be given the opportunity to sign up their children for these extra activities nearer the start of the course.

Students are supervised by a committed and well-organised team of activity leaders, led by our Activities Director, Miss Corinna Atkinson. We take pride in our very low student to staff ratio, (about 9:1 throughout the day), and we prioritise the safety and well-being of all our students.

Our leisure programme of sporting activities and fun evening entertainment enables students of different nationalities to mix, work together, communicate in English, and make new, long-lasting friendships.  Please see our downloads page for a copy of the latest Activities & Excursions timetable.
