advantage of being only an hour and a half away from London by train and from Heathrow by road.

classroom, but also in workshops and during study trips. Students will also gain invaluable study skills by taking part in
multi-disciplinary lessons in many other academic subjects.
The course will be set up so that each week will have a specific theme, with trips and activities relevant to each theme
being co-ordinated on the set weeks. The four themes will be: ‘Young Inventor’, ‘Young Adventurer’, ‘Young Citizen of the
World’ and ‘Young Creator’. The trips included will be a visit to Warwick Castle, Brunel’s world famous Clifton Suspension
Bridge and a trebuchet making activity; private access to Bristol Zoo followed by a formal dinner in their pavilion and a
