Students have English lessons at school each weekday morning and 3 hours of sailing lessons in the afternoons from Tuesday to Friday. The sailing takes place with professional instructors in the safe environment of Weymouth Harbour, a large harbour where the sailing events in the 2012 Olympics took place.
All equipment is provided by the school, including wetsuits and buoyancy aids. Students must be able to swim at least 25 metres and they must wear buoyancy aids at all times when on the water. If the weather is too windy, alternative water sports activities will be arranged as far as possible.
At the end of the course the students will receive a Royal Yachting Association Certificate of at least stage one in the Young Sailors' Scheme.
In the evenings and at weekends the students have a full programme of activities.
There are ...
4 evening activities each week - eg. talent show, karaoke, pizza & games, disco, barn dance, cinema, quiz night, fashion show, blind date and more
1 full day trip each Saturday - eg. London including sightseeing; Oxford including punting; Salisbury und Stonehenge; Bath and the Roman Baths; Cheddar and Wells
All the costs of this programme are included in the course fees.
Before the students even come to Weymouth, we will send them access details for a special page on our website where they will be able to choose some of the activities they would like to do. They can book and change their activities via a PC, tablet or smart phone at any time up to 24 hours before the activity starts.
Each student ends up with an individually designed programme.
