Safety and responsibility

For all our juniors,  safety is our number one concern  (followed closely by  having fun and learning English, of course!).  It is  important  for us to be able  to offer parents complete peace of mind, and  we provide the following to this end:

  • Host families carefully selected by the school team - all families are  inspected regularly and all adults in homestay accommodation for under 18 students are DBS checked

  • Professional, experienced and qualified supervisors for all outdoor adventure activities

  • Minimum of 1:15 supervision on all excursions and activities 

  • 24 hour emergency phone number

  • We use public transport as much as we can to protect our environment.  Where we do need to use a car or coach, we offset our carbon footprint through planting trees.

Junior English - the Explorer 11-15 years

 

This course centres around daily topics related to everyday life experience of young learners and teenagers.

Lessons take place in the mornings or afternoons on a weekly zig zag timetable, with activities and excursions taking place on the opposite stream.

Our activity programme is specially designed to make the most of being in Totnes, a special community full of creative, sustaining and exciting ideas and people. The programme offers:

  • Three half-day sessions per week focused on building resilience in mind, body and spirit. Examples of activities include story-telling, dance, singing, meditation, mindfulness, yoga, foraging, forest bathing, quizzes around the town, group art projects, visiting old age homes and helping out in community projects.

  • Three evening activities per week focusing on shared performances, parties and presentations.

  • Two half-day excursions outside Totnes on public transport where possible to the South Devon coast for coastal walks and beach activities and to Dartmoor National Park for walks, history projects and environmental visits

  • One full day Saturday excursion further afield to the Eden Project, the North Devon coast or Bath for example.
