Summer Programme

Our summer programme varies from year to year and is dependant on students' needs and demands. Previous summer programmes have included classes in the mornings, with activities outside of college so that students can discover what Sheffield and the surrounding area has to offer.

Previous years' activities have included:

  • Taking part in games (football, badminton etc.)
  • Picnics in local parks
  • Discovering Sheffield's culture and history by visiting local museums and galleries

We also organise day trips to Castleton (in the Peak Disrict), Burbage and Longshaw, as well as other social activities such as bowling or trips to the cinema. 

Please note: students will be asked to pay for a small fee (generally between £5 - £25 depending on the activity) for any transport costs or entrance fees included in the visit.
