Excursions Programme

Each week, our students enjoy two full days visiting some of the UK’s famous tourist attractions. The Excursions Programme at SBC Canford Summer School combines a mixture of cultural and historic visits, with fun-filled days out and a little time for souvenir shopping.

The SBC Canford Excursions Programme includes:

Bournemouth & the Beach

Students will spend the day exploring the coastal town of Bournemouth, just a short a journey away from the school. With seven miles of golden sand and sparkling sea, plus a vast variety of shops, cafés and gardens, there is something for everyone. In the afternoon, students head to the beach to relax, play sports and can sample some ice cream!



A trip to the picturesque university city of Oxford, also known as the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’. During this excursion students will go on a walking tour of the city exploring the famous university colleges and buildings. The day also includes a traditional punting boat trip on the River Thames and time for collecting souvenirs at Oxford’s impressive Westgate shopping centre.



Students will get to enjoy the historic city of Bath, visiting the famous Roman Baths and learning about their 2000 year history. The day continues in this wonderful city with its stunning architecture and students can soak up the atmosphere with time for some shopping.


Thorpe Park

Enjoy an exhilarating day out at one of the nation’s most popular theme parks, with over thirty extreme rides and attractions, and one of the world’s most exciting roller coasters!



A trip to the UK would not be complete without a visit to the international city of London. All SBC Canford Summer School students will have the chance to see some of the world-famous attractions London has to offer and will enjoy at least one fully-supervised excursion to the capital city, depending on their length of stay.

The London Day

This is a really exciting day out for our students and one of the highlights of the course! During the excursion, students will spend the day in the capital exploring some of its many great attractions, such as Big Ben, Trafalgar Square and the London Eye. There will also be time for shopping in some of the UK’s top high street stores in famous areas such as Covent Garden. The day will be complete with dinner in a London restaurant before returning to SBC Canford Summer School.
