Typically we have classes in English, Spanish, French, German, Arabic, Mandarin, Japanese, Portuguese, Korean and more…

We also often run non-language classes such as Yoga, Salsa, Tai Chi, Drawing amongst others…

Cultural Events

The International Society hold cultural events throughout term time. Our wonderful volunteers will teach you about all about their country and culture, provide you with several courses of home-cooked traditional food, as well as entertaining you with traditional stories, dances and games.


As well as our trips, classes and events, the International Society also organises various projects for you to get involved in. International 16 is a group of 16 students from 16 different countries who meet all year and are involved in all kinds of interesting and exciting activities. The RocketWorld project will take you out to local schools to share your culture with 7 to 11 year olds; we have two further school projects and you can find out more by clicking below.
