Out and About with Global School of English

Global School of English - Edinburgh wants you to have a great time and learn about Edinburgh and Scotland by organising school trips and social events. From October to May there is 1 social event each week, from May to September we will have 2 social events each week.

Teachers go with you to the event, answer your questions and help you practise your English outside of the classroom. It is also a good time to meet and speak to students from other classes.

School trips are usually in or near Edinburgh and you will need between £5 and £10 to cover the cost of any public transport costs and entrance fees. If you would like to do something or go somewhere in particular, please recommend a destination to us.


Local Trips

 Recent trips have included;

  • The Trossachs
  • Arthur's Seat (a well-known lookout over Edinburgh)
  • The oldest pub in Edinburgh
  • The Writers' Museum
  • The National Museum of Scotland
  • Carlton Hill


Social Clubs

We have a free weekly conversation club for all students at Global School of English - Edinburgh. This is the opportunity to practise your speaking skills by taking part in conversations with teachers and other students. It is a relaxed, informal environment with tea and coffee facilities. All students are welcome.


Discounted National Trips & End-of-Term Parties

At the end of each term we celebrate your hard work by visiting places outside of Edinburgh. The cost of getting there and back is free as we pay for the transport costs. On these longer distance trips approximately £20 - 25 will be needed to cover the cost of the activies and food for the day.

We recently went to Loch Katrine in The Trossachs and Callander in Stirlingshire for some local culture and beauty.
