Activities and Excursions
Bucky Kid’s timetable is planned and organised by a dedicated Activity Manager, who is responsible for choosing and coordinating weekly activities and excursions. One of the key responsibilities of an Activity Manager is to respond to student requests and ensure that all students have a fantastic time during their stay.
Each week, there are two full-day excursions and one half-day trip to a variety of destinations. Students are accompanied by staff on all excursions, and can be given free-time if appropriate. Popular visits include:
At least one excursion per week will take students to London. In previous years, students have gone all over the city, to an assortment of museums, landmarks and attractions.
All students go on the ‘Politics & Royalty’ tour of central London, seeing world-famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Horse Guards Parade, Trafalgar Square, Downing Street, Westminster Abbey, The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.
Students on Bucky Kids also go to see a West End Musical in London or Chessington Theme Park.
Founded in the year 1542, Oxford’s historic rivalry with Cambridge dates back more than 800 years. On a tour of the city, students will see land-marks such as Carfax Tower, Bodleian Library, Christ Church Cathedral, and the ‘Bridge of Sighs’ and many Oxford University Colleges.
This seaside town is based on the South coast of England. Known for its Brighton Pier, students get the opportunity to visit the Sea Life Centre or go on the Brighton Wheel where they have sky views of England’s coastline.
The social programme is an important part of any summer school experience, and is great way for students to socialise and practice their English with each other. In addition to traditional activities such as sports tournaments, talent shows and discos, other examples of Bucksmore activities include:
Our fantastic magician comes to the school and holds a spectacular display for the students. Our Bucky Kids then take part and learn how to do some extraordinary magic tricks for themselves!
Save The Egg
For this activity, students are put into small teams where they are then provided with an egg for which is then dropped from a height. The teams need create a device in order to save their egg. The aim of the game is for the egg to be dropped and arrive safely without being broken.
Clues are set in and around the school grounds which students follow, overcoming obstacles and challenges along the way in order to win a prize!
