Tailor-Made English Experience

for international students

  • Tailor-Made English Experience for international children

Just as you like it

If you are booking for a group of 15 or more children, why not choose our Tailor-Made English Experience?  We can help you create the exact trip to suit your group.

You can choose any duration you like to fit your group’s wishes. You can even come any time of year.

Your group can stay at one centre or tour around, staying at different PGL centres. They can even visit the UK and France!

And of course, you can arrange any combination of activities your group will love; from cultural trips and sightseeing to thrilling adventure activities; from classroom-based learning to pursuing special interests.  Anything is possible with PGL.

Talk to us about what you have in mind – we’re here to help fulfil your group’s wishes!

How does it work?

We work with you before your trip to arrange the perfect itinerary for your students. Choose one of the following courses or any combination:

  • Multi-Activity adventure - Bring out the best in your students with PGL adventure activity sessions promoting teamwork, communication and leadership skills
  • Excursions to places of interest in the UK - The perfect introduction to the history and culture of Britain to inspire and motivate your students. Optional PGL tour leader available
  • Study courses – Modular courses in Field Studies, Maths, Science and Computing
  • English language - Classroom-based lessons

There are plenty of facilities to keep your group occupied during free time, plus fun-packed evening entertainment programmes, run by the PGL centre team, to keep your group happy and busy until bedtime.

A PGL trip has all the benefits of staying at a residential centre, including the support of our centre teams plus a free adult place for every eight students.
