School trips A Taste of England
LOCATION AND SOCIAL PROGRAMME
Located on the East Sussex sea front at the border of the Kent, Hastings is very well located in terms of accessibility and closeness to historical or cultural sites. It is only an hour away from the Euro-tunnel and London Gatwick international airport with easy access to all other London airports.
Cities such as London, Brighton or Canterbury are close by making Hastings the perfect place if you want to visit them all during one stay, as well as Eastbourne, Battle with its historical abbey and battle field and the medieval Rye. Cambridge Gardens College is 2 minutes away from the main train and bus station and 5 minutes from the coach park. Our team at Cambridge Gardens College can build a programme that meets your demands. You will have the choice between numerous cultural visits among which there are the historical sites of Battle Abbey, Pevensey Castle or the Royal Pavilion, entertaining activities such as Laser Quest, Bowling or Cinema or excursions to London, Brighton or Canterbury for example. We can also offer real British experience with Cricket Initiations, Golf Practice, tea time breaks or fish & chips.
Host families are selected very carefully and have to follow a thorough host family guide updated each year by the director of the school. School trip students are placed in groups of 2, 3 or 4 students per family in single or twin rooms. They will get to spend all the evenings with their hosts in full board accommodation (breakfast, packed lunch and dinner) and will be dropped off and picked up to and from school so they are never left on their own and don’t have to use public transport.
The residential accommodations are all located on the sea front 5 minutes from the school and main train station.
Students share 4 to 6 bedded rooms all en suite and leaders, single or twin rooms. Groups have access to common rooms for times of leisure and a refectory.
ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE (EFL) WORKSHOP
If you choose so, we can provide English workshops all lead by our EFL qualified teachers, where students can practise English in a fun way. Lessons are interactive and aim to improve students’ confidence, communication and comprehension and gives them the opportunity to practise every day English. Students will get to write newspapers, make interviews and express themselves in theater plays or even a flash mob.
