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
  • Classroom-based English language 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.

Activities
