CAE Social Organisers – A great team!

Our Social Organisers are responsible for organising all aspects of social activities within the school. Not only do they arrange parties, dances and excursions, they are also available to help you if you want to plan your own free-time programme. Their office is near the cafeteria, and they love to have visitors.

The motto at CAE is: “England is our Classroom”. In other words your English learning should not just be during class – it should go on everywhere, and all the time. That’s why there are all kinds of original and exciting events in and outside the school most nights of the year (and every night during the summer!). We can also help you take full advantage of Cambridge – one of the world’s great student cities – and each weekend you can choose excursions to other parts of England, or even to other countries. It’s impossible not to have a great time!

A great team!

Social activities programme

A typical week at CAE may look something like this:

Monday A night out in Cambridge e.g. cinema or bowling.
Tuesday Watch the latest DVD at CAE. Tennis courts available for afternoon use.
Wednesday Travel into Cambridge with your friends for a fun night out.
Thursday International Party at School – the Thai students are hosting tonight! Enjoy food from around the world!!
Tennis courts available for afternoon use
Friday Classes finish at lunchtime today, so you might want to use the Table Tennis, Pool or Basketball facilities at CAE in the afternoon. Or book on the 3-day trip to Paris.
Saturday Day trip to London
Sunday If you’re not on a day trip, CAE is open 12-6pm for self-study, Internet use or you may want to watch a DVD on the large screen in the common room.

But don’t miss out, as each week is different!!
