It could be said “free time is wasted time" Why not use your holiday time to boost your results but then why not combine it with a bit of rest and relaxation? We understand that for some it is difficult, expensive and disruptive to travel home for the half term week or short holiday periods between terms, therefore Buckswood St George’s College can offer the following options:
Leadership Short Courses:
Want to be more assertive, be a school prefect or a school sports captain? Do you need to improve your level of confidence? We offer a short intensive leadership course for those who want to get ahead.
Do you want to be top of the class. therefore need a bit of a top up or booster course before you go back to school again? We offer a variety of booster courses throughout the holiday periods. Tutors are on hand to offer help from subjects from GCSE Maths to A-Level Accounting. Tuition can be either on a one to one basis or in small groups.
Academic Booster Courses
Rest and Relaxation:
For those not taking up any of the academic sessions you are free…
- A time for relaxation and reflection
- Accomodation, full board (inc. three meals a day)
- A relaxed “holiday” feel but one that has a sense of purpose
