the creative arts For all students, the more formal English and academic classes are complemented by a programme of Creative Arts, including Art and Drama Clubs. There are also opportunities for individual Music lessons and one-to-one tuition in Art (on request). These activities encourage speaking and listening and help build confidence and develop self expression.

trips and excursions As well as our on-site activities, we organise a stimulating and varied programe of fully supervised trips and excursions at weekends. Some allow students to discover places of cultural, geographical and historical interest; others encourage students to sample the great outdoors, through walking, hiking, cycling and other physical pursuits. Sightseeing, cultural visits and even shopping provide contexts within which speaking and listening skills are put to the test; they are also great fun and provide memories to last a lifetime. The College makes full use of the importance of Bath as a local cultural centre (and UNESCOWorld Heritage Site), with regular visits organised for students.

Trips and excursions may include: • London museums and art galleries • Cycling and orienteering in local forests • Outdoor activity centres • Trips to the beach and coastal walking • Visits to neighbouring towns and cities, including Bath, Bristol, Salisbury and Oxford

“Being able to pursue a wide range of subjects at Bishopstrow, including Drama and Music, helped prepare me for the broader curriculum that I would have access to at my next school”

“Rudi regained his self-esteem and is happy and motivated. I believe that Bishopstrow College is a wonderful place for international students to start an English boarding school education. We will be pleased to update you on Rudi’s experiences in the future”
