Let the sea inspire
What better way to motivate and engage your students than with a PGL trip to the Med?
You’ll bring back confident, positive students who have enjoyed a packed itinerary of watersports off superb beaches in France or Spain; students who have benefited from the opportunities to learn new skills and experience a new environment; students with a real sense of their own achievement who understand how perseverance leads to success; students who have learned to believe they can.
When you choose a watersports course with us, you'll get an action-packed adventure in the most inspiring surroundings.
All day is spent on the water with each activity session normally scheduled for half a day. This allows your students to try out two different watersports every day; they’ll be using a range of craft including catamarans, dinghies, windsurfers and sit-on kayaks.
One day of your itinerary is set aside to change the pace and give yourself some time to relax. Explore the culture and history of the local area or enjoy the thrills and spills of a popular waterpark.
If you’re staying at La Fosca in Spain you have the option to include a second day’s excursion so you can do both!
The fun doesn’t stop when the day’s activities are over. Our centre teams lead evening entertainment to keep your students occupied, including a nightly disco.

Your students will have the chance to learn specific sailing and paddling skills; they can also obtain qualifications that can contribute to GCSE and BTEC coursework.
