Social Programme

Learning English at our school is not just about hard work. We believe that after your studies you need to relax and enjoy yourself in your free-time, using your English to meet people, make friends and learn something about our way of life and culture.


We have an active social programme, which includes everything from museum trips to city visits. Every Friday afternoon we all go to the pub, and we also organise regular restaurant outings. In summer we enjoy the Victoria School Barbecue, Sports Day, and International Day.


Many of these activities are free. When you do have to pay entrance fees or excursion costs we negotiate the lowest possible price for our students. Naturally you will also probably arrange activities yourself with friends and classmates from the school.
