Social Activities

We want our students to work hard, but also to play hard!
During your time with us, we want you to have a great experience in Leeds and the surrounding area.

We have a great and varied programme offering events and trips to please everyone’s interests and budgets. Prices range from £5.00 to £50 depending on the activity but there are also free trips and lots of free activities available throughout the year. Please look on the upcoming events to give you an idea of how much particular trips cost.

Our Social Activities page is full of ideas to get you out and about, speaking, listening and learning with other students and local people.

Leeds English visits York Minster

What our students say…

“I’m grateful to Ruth for magnificent trips, especially to York!”

Natalia, from Russia

“A lot of activities such as trips in York and Blackpool, international day and painting. The second one was my favourite because all students shared their cultures through food, presentations and music.”

Elodie, from France

All the trips were perfect throughout my education. I don’t know how to thank Ruth. She makes an effort to please all students!”

Meltem, from Turkey

Love where you live!

We want you to love our city as much as we do!

Local activities include a trip to the Royal Armouries Museum combined with a ride on the water taxi, a visit to the Leeds German Christmas Market, a fish and chips night at the local pub, and more!

Having a happy, relaxed mind helps you reach your potential. This is why offering fun and interesting activities is a top priority at Leeds English Language School.
