Once a week, we are able to wash clothes in the laundry. If your child wishes to use the laundry, please label their clothes with their name.

Bed linen and towels are provided.

Upon arrival, passports and travel documents are collected by the Course Director and are locked away until departure day. We are also able to look after pocket money which is kept in a safe and collected at specific times during the week.

Pocket Money

As the course is all-inclusive, we do not recommend that students bring a lot of pocket money. All they need is some money for sweets from the tuck-shop (maximum spend of £2.00/day) and any presents/souvenirs that they may wish to buy. We recommend around £40 pocket money per week.
