Leisure Programme

At SSC, we believe don’t stop learning English when you leave the language classroom! We provide a variety of sports and leisure options on Wednesday afternoons to develop your physical and mental abilities and to give you the opportunity to practice your English outside of the classroom.

We have a wide ranging programme of sports and leisure to ensure that all students have the opportunity to extend existing skills and to learn new ones. Students are offered team sports, solitary sports, adventurous sports, creative activities and activities that those less physically active (for example, due to physical impairments) can take part in, learn from and enjoy.

Participation in the Leisure Programme is optional for all English courses students, and fees are applicable. If you are interested in taking part in the Wednesday afternoon Leisure Programme, please tick the box on the application form and we will send you more information about the fees.


Once a term, SSC will organise a whole-college (GCSE and A Level) outing to fun and/or educational sites in Wales and further afield.
