New Residential Packages for schools

Hill End has been providing quality residential experiences for children of all ages for decades and we strongly believe in the positive outcomes for students – for their learning, confidence and life skills.

We also understand that it is often difficult for schools to find time to arrange these trips and all the activities that go with them. We are pleased to offer new tailor-made packages (accommodation, catering and activities) that take the stress out of planning a school residential! Choose from:

  • The wild sleepover (in the characterful High Dormitory)
  • The campout sleepover (in our beautiful Bell tents)
  • The summer stayaway – stay for one, two or three nights (dormitories or tents, your choice!)

Our new Covid-19 guarantee means you can book with confidence – see our Covid-19 page for more information.
