The orientation programme and welcome reception on 1 July will give you the chance to meet your fellow students and the summer school staff.
We also arrange a number of evening social activities and optional trips during the programme.
There will be two long weekends (three days) during the summer school, giving you the chance to undertake independent travel. In previous years we have worked with a tour company that provided optional trips to Scotland or Paris. We will find out closer to the time if the company can put on any trips for Summer 2021.
The other two weekends provide free time for exploring London and the area closer to Kingston.
There will be the opportunity to attend a one day British Classics cooking class on Monday 12 July. You will learn to make three courses of traditional British dishes, then sit down as a group to enjoy the meal.
The three dishes are:
The kitchen is 100% gluten free.
The link for booking will be confirmed here nearer the time.
If you are not taking the British Culture class, you may still have the opportunity to participate in its field trips, paying a fee per trip (space permitting). Whether this is possible depends on your schedule.
Full information about the trips will be available at the start of the summer school, but in the meantime you can see details of last summer's trips below for an idea of what to expect:
