All our students enjoy 1 full-day excursion plus 1 half-day excursion each week. Manor Courses is based close to some of the UK’s most popular tourist destinations allowing us to offer exciting and educationally stimulating excursions to destinations which include London, Oxford, Cambridge, Brighton and Bath. All entrances to tourist attractions are included in the fee.

"We spent two wonderful weeks in Hurst and everything went really well with the experienced academic staff in terms of language education. MC was well organised in creating extensive and fun activities every day and able to make my students' days more colourful with the energetic and friendly activity leaders."

"Our daughter had spent 14 days in your summer school. She was so happy there and she liked it very very much. She was even sad to come home, because she missed her new friends and the school…and everything. I want to thank you so much for what you do for all these young people. It’s such a good organisation, you have my great respect and my congratulations."
Odile and Robert – parents of Caroline, student, 2015
"My school has sent our students almost every year since 1989. I like MC because they take good care of us. All the students who took part in MC say that they had a wonderful experience there. The staff always care about the students’ safety. I think it is a warm and comfortable atmosphere to experience summer courses."
