Excursions & Activities
An extensive and varied programme of activities awaits children who join Highfield Summer School. All activities and excursions are led by our own professional staff who care deeply about education and guiding children on their own journey of discovery.
Highfield has fantastic facilities, extensive sports pitches, and 175 acres of beautiful, safe, private grounds and woodlands, all of which are enjoyed by our Summer School students. The main activities sessions are in the evenings after supper, and on Tuesday afternoons, and these provide the opportunity for our overseas guests to experience an exhilarating range of fun boarding school activities.
We always provide a variety of outdoor physical activities as well as less energetic activities, or just the option to curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book if they are in need of some quiet time after a busy day. We make the most of warm summer evenings with BBQs, or special Theme Nights and there is a Farewell Party on the last evening of the course. Given the ages of the students attending the course, activities are group activities and children are supervised at all times.
Photos and examples of just some of our popular activities are below:
|Tennis||Arts & Crafts||Music Groups||Bushcraft|
|Swimming||Pottery||Singing/ Karaoke||Water Slide|
|Football||Cookery||Movie Making||Adventure Playground|
|Rounders||Jewellery Making||Cinema in the Woods||Inflatables|
|Golf||Pamper Nights||Nature Walks||Quiz Nights|
|Watersports||Martial Arts||Darts||First Aid Training|
Over the course of the three weeks the students will go on two full day excursions and two half day trips. Our excursions are primarily focussed on visiting places of historical or cultural interest, though there may be some limited shopping opportunities available in their on site gift shop. The exception to this is the first half day excursion, when we usually visit an Outdoor Pursuits Centre where students have the opportunity to get to know each other better and develop their team-building skills.
NEW DATES FOR 2021: 17th July - 7th August
