Me Club Update – Summer 2017

July 26, 2017 by Minerva Tutors,

Me Club has already had a fantastic first two weeks, full of brilliant workshops, exciting trips and (of course) useful studying in the mornings – whether that’s learning English, or covering the 7 Plus and 11 Plus syllabus.

Hard at work.

Me Club is running throughout the summer holidays for another three weeks, and the good news is there’s still a few places available! So far, we have already taken trips to the Natural History Museum, British Museum and Science Museum – and if you want your kids to have amazing experiences like these, Me Club is the place.

Our trip to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre includes not only a guided tour, but a whole Shakespeare workshop – with vocal exercises, warm-up games and reading through a script. And it’s all hosted by a Shakespearean actor!

Other fun-filled workshops so far have included teamwork, etiquette and manners, and public speaking – followed by some inspirational speeches from the kids about how they would change the world. Children from all over the world came up with different ideas; highlights included saving the sharks from ending up as shark fin soup and ridding the ocean of rubbish.

And best of all, they can learn while having a great time!

We have some incredible activities lined up for the next few weeks – including more fun, interactive tours of London’s world class attractions. Beyond those we’ve mentioned, there’s also any number of brilliant art galleries, Kidzania, the London Bridge Experience, Greenwich Meantime and the Royal Observatory still to come.


As well as world-class teaching, amazing cultural activities and life skills workshops, children attending Me Club will now also be able to learn coding – the only truly future-proof skill.

Coding classes will be run by Thomas Magnitis, Minerva’s top expert coding tutor, who will teach an introductory course in some of the fundamental programming languages. These include Scratch, Ruby, Python and more – you can read an interview with Thomas here, discussing why coding will be so important in the near future.

August 14th – 18th
