Learning does not end when lessons finish. There are many hours of useful practice time before the end of the day and we want to make sure that everyone doing our courses has the opportunity to make the most of them.
Our evening and weekend events programme offers several events a week designed to allow you to enjoy yourself and experience a bit of London while continuing to practice English in a more relaxed style – and getting to know fellow delegates better.
In addition, we offer a useful information service at our front desk which is open from 08:30 until 17:30 Monday to Friday. We encourage students to make use of this free service for assistance with booking tickets, making reservations, etc.
You may wish to plan some activities before you arrive in the UK. Just email us telling us what you would like to do and we will do our best to organise it. Please note that this service is only available to students who have already registered on a course with us. We will need your credit card details to make a booking. All tickets will be held here until your arrival.
The social programme at Holland Park Gardens is an opportunity for professionals on all of the courses here to meet and socialise together. Typically in a week we will take you on a mixture of social evenings to local pubs and restaurants and cultural evenings in central London where you can enjoy the sights and visit London's most famous gallaries and museums.
On average we have three or four social events per week at Westcroft Square. These typically include pub tours, restaurant evenings, cinema and DVD nights in the evening and every Wednesday afternoon we arrange a guided tour or a cultural visit in London. For those wanting to do something a bit more active there is usually football in the park after lunch on Wednesday.
Unlike many other schools, almost all of our events are accompanied by our own staff, although trips out of London are organised for us by another company as this gives much more choice and flexibility.
On arrival, each course participant is given a folder with information about the school and about London, as well as our own pocket sized guide to the capital. We spend a great deal of time advising individuals about how and where they can pursue their own interests (sport, music etc) and have a full booking service for theatres, musicals, football matches etc.
