Social Activities

We want our students to work hard, but also to play hard!
As a Leeds English student, you will have access to our year-round calendar of activities and events planned by our dedicated Social Activities Coordinator.

During your time with us, we want you to have a great experience in Leeds and the surrounding area. Our Social Activities programme has been designed to get you out and about, speaking, listening and learning with other students and local people!

Some of our favourite trips:

  • York
    See the largest Gothic cathedral in Europe and walk the cobbled streets!

  • Knaresborough
    Visit the famous caves and take a boat ride under the stunning railway bridge!

  • Scarborough
    Take a trip to the English seaside for fish and chips on the beach and visit a castle built 3000 years ago!

  • Liverpool
    Learn about the Titanic at the Maritime Museum and see where The Beatles used to play concerts!

    Walk the ancient moors for beautiful views of the Yorkshire countryside!

  • Bolton Abbey

What our students say…

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

“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

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

Natalia, from Russia

Love where you live!

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

Our local activities include a tour of Leeds on your first day, 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.
