Sport and activities


A variety of sports and activities

The programme of activities on offer will differ in each Kings Summer location, but will always be extensive and varied. 

Children taking Residential Summer Courses with us will take part in primarily campus-based activities. The exclusive nature of the schools where they are hosted means that they will have access to some first-class facilities, including climbing walls, swimming pools, tennis courts, volleyball courts, athletics tracks, gymnasiums, and even dance studios.

Those taking a Vacation Extra course with us will enjoy activities that take place both on and off-site, including swimming, team games, discos and karaoke.

Specialist activities at UK residential summer centres

In addition to our standard range of activities, the excellent facilities and expert staff at our locations means that we are able to offer a range of specialist options.

These activities are designed to broaden our students’ interests and teach them valuable skills which can be used in either an educational or recreational context. They take place during normal activity sessions and are available at our Cheltenham, Bath (Downside) and Moreton Hall Residential Summer Centres, and London (Beckenham) Vacation Extra Centre.

Please see the specific course pages for details of each activity.
