THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED
The UK – long summer days There are some awesome things going on nearer to home in the UK in residential camps, courses and academies that provide sports and activity programmes like football, rugby, golf, tennis, multisports, rowing, dance, acting, music and so much more. Such camps are perfect for children with lots of energy, creativity and dedication; allowing them to show independence and giving them a chance away from school and home to develop talents or simply to have fun.
Some of these courses are often held within the most beautiful surroundings of English public schools, enabling children to take advantage of the outstanding facilities that these schools have. Everything is in place for the children so that they are able to have unforgettable experiences within a safe and secure environment with vetted, qualified staff.

Exsportise is one such company that Eds Up were extremely impressed with. In their Sports Academy programme, the children receive six hours of coaching a day, followed by time to chill out, make friends and get involved in evening entertainments.
Experienced sports coaches, many of whom have played professionally or performed at international level, help children develop their sports skills along
with providing an insight into the psychology of performance, the demands of practice, breath control, flexibility, physical strength and teamwork – laying the foundation for a lifelong relationship with sport.
If your child is a musician or singer, they can combine their love of sport and music at Seaford College. In partnership with the renowned Eton Place Music Company, Exsportise offers expert tuition from experienced musicians in Choir, Jazz and Orchestra.
Students come from all over Europe, the US, and beyond, so that children can broaden their cultural understanding alongside children from around the world and learn that music, art, drama and sport can bring people together wherever they are from.
Hurtwood House, which you will have read about earlier in this issue, also shares its own phenomenal performing arts facilities in its summer school programmes offered to teenagers. These include residential and non-residential dance and acting workshops with professional tutors. In addition, Hurtwood welcomes language students in the summer, providing expert tuition interspersed with activities like horse riding, basketball, volleyball, hockey, squash, laser war games, boating on the river, ice skating, dry skiing, go-karting, table tennis, swimming, ten pin bowling and so much more you would not believe it!
And another thing . . . Those who start their holidays more concerned about getting a job later in the year rather than having fun, may value a new personal service that’s just become available: Michael Barratt,
broadcaster (Panorama, Nationwide etc) and author (“Making the Most of the Media” etc) is now offering personal tuition in the home on how to make the most of job interview opportunities. As you can see from his website www.mbarratt.co.uk
he has some marvellous references from pupils who’ve already been helped by him.
