What should I bring?

We have put together a small checklist of items we advise you to pack for the summer course:

Clothes – every day/casual clothes, we do not have a uniform on our courses.

Footwear – shoes suitable for walking long distances.

Sportswear (indoor and outdoor) – trainers, t-shirts and shorts.

Formal clothing – boys must bring a nice suit with a shirt, tie, and smart shoes for the formal dinner and dance.  Girls – this is your chance to dress up!  Heels can be worn.

Swimwear – there are heated swimming-pools at each of the schools.

Light rainwear – definitely bring a waterproof jacket with you!

Towels please bring your own towels

Electronics – you may bring your phone, laptop and camera ,but please keep electrical items to a minimum.  All electrical items must be tested by a school electrician upon arrival.  Schools can only accept adapters with shutters over the socket holes and half-inch insulated pins.

Money – students will not need any cash to pay for trips or sports, these are all included.  Students will only need cash for their own spending on snacks and souvenirs, etc.  £50.00 (GBP) a week is plenty of money for each student.  There are shopping opportunities whilst on the trips and throughout free time in the evenings (for students at Wellington School), but it is not necessary for you to bring a lot!  On induction we ask for students to hand in their cash (and important documents) to our staff and advise to keep a maximum of £50.00 with them at any time.  At each location students will be advised of the time and location when they can withdraw money from their student envelope.

We send out ‘Course Joining Instructions’ before you arrive at each school which informs you of everything you will need to know before the course.
