Study Based Getaways

How about combining revision/project work with outdoor activities​ and/or using our accommodation and meeting spaces for distraction free study to create a brilliant residential that helps students to achieve the best that they can?

Examples to date:

  • A focused music practice weekend for secondary school students.
  • A ‘revision camp’ with a mixture of outdoor activity sessions and teacher led revision sessions.
  • A university screen writing retreat.
  • An A-Level drama assignment; written, practised and ready to be performed in one weekend.
If you have an idea please contact us to discuss the options or come and visit us to see our facilities, meet the staff and see how we can help.
