Our experience has taught us that students on Half Term or Easter holidays are
usually ready for a break from the routine of school. Some want a certain amount
of structure to their holiday, whilst others simply want the freedom to do what
they want and when they want. It is with this knowledge and understanding of our
students that we have devised a flexible programme that has proved to be a winning
recipe for all students attending.
An important part of preparing for examinations
and taking a break in routine, should involve plenty
of sleep. For this reason, students on Relax and
Revise can lie in and take a leisurely breakfast in the
dining room between 8.30 and 9.30 to suit them.
Study like you are at home
When students go home they feel relaxed and study
where and when they want. We aim for our Relax
& Revise students to feel at home. They benefit
from a relaxed and secure enviroment where they
can chill out all day if they like, relax and study in
the comfortable bedrooms, a classroom or, if the
weather allows, out in the gardens.
Each weekday morning a nominated classroom is
available to students for private study. The college
operates an ‘open door’ policy to its Academic
Director who is on hand to give planning support
and study guidance.
Relax & Revise 1:1
For those students who need assistance and
support in a specific subject or subjects, then they
can opt for Relax & Revise 1:1 at time of booking
and benefit from 1:1 tuition from tutors qualified in
a wide variety of subjects.
Take a break from revision
There is nothing like a change of scenery to help
de-stress and focus the mind. Cambridge Melchior
College is 15 minutes from central Cambridge
by bus and the centre has a mini-bus that takes
students into Cambridge at agreed times, so there is
always plenty to do in the afternoons.
Relax & Revise students have a dedicated Group
Activity Leader who supervises them during the
day and takes them on their afternoon visits. Every
week, students can take part in a full-day outing to a
city of interest in the UK.
There are optional evening events and activities for
those who wish to join.
Going out Rules
All students who are 13 or under need to stay with
the group at all times. 14 and 15 year olds will
be allowed to visit the local town in pairs or small
groups during the day. Students of 16 plus may
travel further afield unaccompanied, as long as their
parents are happy with this. Students must adhere
by our curfew rules for returning to the centre. Any
student leaving must sign in and out and keep their
phone switched on and fully charged so we can
keep in touch.
