Locations

All of our residential school trips are held at our private woodland outdoor centres. The great outdoors has been a source of inspiration for us since the beginning, and we continue to develop new activites, workshops and games each year, all inspired by the places we work in. Each centre offers unique characteritistics, but all of them have the same magical sense of remoteness, allowing our students to become fully immersed in their environment. You won't find wooden dorms or dining halls at our centres, but vast expanses of beautiful countryside, dotted with roaring campfires, safari style camps, and stunning white bell tents. If you have a real passion for the outdoors, our centres will be your perfect places to work.
