Harry Potter theme
Taking advantage of Brockhurst and Marlston traditional English school with its magnificent interiors and facilities, BLA has put together an exhilarating programme designed around the Harry Potter theme, creating an unforgettable ‘magic’ experience for the young students whilst studying.
Learners will immerse themselves in the Hogwarts atmosphere recreated for them and become fully engaged with lessons and activities, learning English while having fun.
During their stay students will attend English lessons in the morning, and participate in afternoon and evening activities designed around the theme utilising the superb facilities that the school offers (theatre, music and art centre, science lab, heated indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, horse riding school, gym, to name a few).
Split into houses, just like in the film, the young wizards will compete throughout their stay to gain points and win prizes on the way and become celebrity guests at the Great Hall Banquet.
