Travelling From Overseas?

We understand why you are sending your child or teen to XUK. You want them to improve their English and their fluency of the Language.You also want them to have fun and be safe in a different country, experiencing different activities and tasting the British culture.

We have been welcoming children from all over the world for the last twenty years. Our success in creating safe and exciting camps has helped establish XUK as an international brand.

We understand that you are sending your children to camp to improve their English Language fluency and we try to achieve this through various means including sports / games, activities, sightseeing, social activities and EFL lessons for those that choose.

Therefore, as well as having a fun time and being safe – our intention is that your kids improve their English during their time at camp.

Our qualified English teachers on site not only teach EFL classes but also help improve English levels throughout activity time and trips.

The structure of the camp is also designed for this same goal - more specifically:

  • mixed nationality classes and activity groups
  • limits on student numbers from the same native language
  • mixed nationality bedrooms
  • all children encouraged to speak English throughout their time at camp
  • children immersing themselves in the English culture - all children can enjoy what they are doing, make the most of their time and naturally learn the language
  • mostly native - English speaking staff
  • mixing where possible with native English speaking children

We also continue to offer online English classes during the term time and the camps are a great opportunity to build upon concepts learned during the school year and put that learning into practice.

If you and your child would prefer a traditional English school XUK English is the perfect place.

Airport/Train collection

We organise collection from Heathrow, Bristol and Gatwick as well as St Pancras International Station. We meet your child at the arrival gate and take them to camp where we’ll do everything possible to help them settle in. On departure we take them to the appropriate airport, check them in and make sure they get home safely!

For more information please look at our "Getting to XUK Excel" section.

We make sure that your child makes the most of their time at XUK. We include a weekly trip to visit a beautiful English town! This is a great chance for children to have a trip off site, choose what they’d like to do for the day, and get to taste a bit more of the British culture (and shops).

There is also an option of a trip to London. We explore the sights, hear the sounds, taste the food and sample the London life. We even take campers to a show in the west end!


Non-EU students may require a VISA to enter the UK. Should you require a VISA, we have an ‘Invitation’ letter that we can scan to you. This will include details of our certification and your child’s stay. We will need to have received a scan copy of your child’s passport so we can include the relevant details. If you require, we can also courier this document to you for an additional charge.

Most our non-EU children / students arrive to the UK on a Standard Visitor VISA. Feel free to consult us if you have any questions. However, we are not able to advise on the VISA application process and recommend that you consult the UK Government Website or your local UK embassy.
