Young People's Courses

Teenagers 13 to 17 yrs

This year, there are a number of new and exciting courses included in our teenage programme. Teenagers can also enjoy a varied and exciting range of entertainment during the early evening. These activities may include treasure hunts, swimming inflatables, Capture the Flag, Jailbreak and much more. So, there's always plenty to do!

Jonathan Bass will once again be leading the Teenagers activity programme. Jonathan qualified as a teacher in 2010 and has been teaching History for the last eight years in both senior and prep boarding schools. He currently teaches at Cheltenham College Prep school. Outside of the classroom he enjoys a range of sports and outdoor activities and aims to use these interests to help create a great environment for the teenagers at the Summer School to relax and enjoy themselves in.

The Summer School Office will issue a Parental Approval Form for all students aged 17 and under, which must completed prior to arrival.

Courses marked with a C indicate combined courses for both Teenagers and Young Adventurers.
