Taking the Classroom Outdoors

05 March 2018

There’s nothing quite like a fun and memorable school trip to make the learning experience more enjoyable, and here at The Manor House we pride ourselves in providing top-notch activity courses for school children.  If you’re looking to take your students on a trip with a difference, why not consider our field study or activity holidays?

We are located in beautiful North Cornwall and can offer quality, individually tailored courses with a high instructor-student ratio. Treat your students to a more interactive, hands-on and (most importantly) fun way of learning with one of our school courses.

These trips, as well as being a fantastic learning experience, are also a great way to encourage team building within the classroom. Come and visit us in the Autumn Term and use the scenic great outdoors and our action-packed activities as an icebreaker for the new school year! Our Centre offers a variety of fun experiences; including surfing, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. These serve as an amazing bonding experience for both students and teachers, and are certain to set the school year off to a memorable start!

Choosing to host your trip with us offers that extra authentic feeling of being close to nature for the children. While most centres use an artificial climbing wall, we are proud that our rock-climbing activity is held on sea cliffs in a secluded cove – a great chance to spot seals and basking sharks! If you choose to cycle, the Camel Trail is the most beautiful place to do it, with breathtaking views along the Camel estuary and a chance for everyone to stop for tea or even an ice cream! We also offer evening activities, including a beach bonfire to toast marshmallows and give the students a chance to reflect on their experiences and cement their new bond.

We are AALS (Adventure Activities Licensing Service) licensed, as well as being approved by the BC (British Canoeing), RYA (Royal Yachting Association) and the BSUPA (British Stand Up Paddleboard Association). We also hold the LOtC (Learning Outside the Classroom) awards and the Adventuremark. We guarantee a professional service, with courses tailored to each group’s individual needs, and we can help your students develop skills that can only be taught outside of the classroom. The children are divided into small groups, so that we can give them the most individual attention and offer the best personal development.

We also provide accommodation, so a booking with us neatly wraps up all your organisation. The only thing you need to arrange is transport to and from the centre when you arrive and leave – we will take care of everything else for you. We will even collect you from Bodmin Parkway Train Station or Newquay Airport at no additional cost! Meals throughout the week are also included! Teachers also get a free space (ratio 1:10), so there will be no extra charges for them. At the moment we are offering 10% off Autumn Term bookings when you book before 1st March, so don’t miss out on your spot – this is sure to be very popular!

Prices are very competitive, and there are no hidden extras when you book with us.  We will give you a quote and agree a timetable for the tailored course for your students beforehand. Treat your students to a memorable week in the beautiful surroundings of the Cornish coast and countryside, enjoying hands-on activities and learning positive life skills.
