When children reach Years 4, 5 & 6, they will have the opportunity to take part in a 2 night stay residential at Ghyll Head.

Ghyll Head is a large country house set in seventeen acres of its own grounds, with extensive views to the Coniston and Langdale Fells. It is situated on the east side of Lake Windermere, about three miles south of Bowness. Down at the lake shore, there is a barrier free boathouse with jetty and launching facilities. The house is centrally heated and pleasantly furnished following our recent £1.5 million investment.

Accommodation includes a lounge, games room and dining room together with student’s bedrooms of sizes varying from four to eight beds. Rooms are en-suite or with shared bathrooms, again all newly refurbished to high standards. As an essential part of the learning at the centre - students are required to help with routine tasks around the Centre, e.g. keeping rooms tidy, washing dishes, laying and clearing tables, cleaning and taking care of any equipment loaned to them

A provisional programme is planned in advance, but the final choice of activities is arranged each day to suit the needs of
the group and make best use of the weather.
During the course, the students will take part in some of the following activities:

Hill walking, gill scrambling, orienteering, ropes course and adventure activities in the grounds, problem solving team exercises, rock climbing/abseiling, caving, Environmental Study, zip wire, All Aboard & Trapeze ,archery, canoeing, kayaking, raft building, sailing!
