Social Programme

Multi-Campus Events

Two campuses, one family!

On the Millfield English Language Holiday Courses action-packed activities and events provide a memorable experience for all.

Both campuses are brought together for large events to participate in a wide variety of exciting activities such as the Rock Festival, Millfield the Musical, International Food Festival, Summer Fete and many more.

Please note that the activities on offer change daily and not all activities will be available every week.

Evening Activities

A full social programme is provided at each campus, making every moment special. This ensures that every student is kept busy and has maximum opportunity to practise English whilst making friends with students from around the world, in a fun and enjoyable environment.

An impressive programme of evening activities provides the fun that delivers the true ‘Millfield Experience.’

At some of the big evening events, all campuses join together giving students the opportunity to meet up with friends and siblings based at other campuses.

Evening activities include the Millfield Extravaganza, Water Olympics, Discos, Talent Shows, House Song Competitions, and so much more. On Mondays each house will hold a House Party with fun games to help students to get to know each other.

Please note that the evening activities on offer change daily and so not all activities will be available every week or at every campus.


Students enjoy one full-day and one half-day excursion every week. A careful balance of active, historical, fun and educational excursions are provided. Students are accompanied by Millfield staff who provide help and guidance and ensure students are using spoken English.

Teachers incorporate excursion experiences into lessons, enabling students to take their education beyond the classroom.

Examples of full-day excursions:

Theme Parks - Legoland and Thorpe Park
City Tours - Oxford, Exeter and Bristol
Seaside Trips - Bournemouth and Lyme Regis
Castles and Museums - Cardiff Castle and Science Museum

Examples of half-day excursions:

Longleat, Wells, Bath, Wookey Hole Caves, Fleet Air Arm Museum.

Please note that the excursions on offer change weekly and so not all of these will be available every week or at every campus.


Following the afternoon programme, there are a variety of clubs on offer for students to enjoy. This is an opportunity to try something new or join with friends in the same activity.

Typical club activities:

Badminton, Football, Tennis, Netball, Frisbee, Dance, Yoga, Drama, Music, Basketball, and much, much, more..!


Prizes are awarded throughout the courses to students who show outstanding progress, or whose effort in sports or competitions is exceptional.

There are a number of T-shirts awarded to the best students of the week including Top Banana, Duck Guardians and our coveted slogan T-shirt. There are opportunities to become a member of Mark's Crew and a Prefect and the ultimate prize is Head Boy/Girl.

Students are also rewarded for completing their organiser, among other things.

At the end of the courses we hold a Review Night to look at everything the students have achieved during the summer, with awards given to students who have performed particularly well.
