School & Student Groups


Over twenty years of working with schools gives us an understanding of how best to meet your needs. Many of our schools return year after year as a base to explore the City of York.

Your coach is able to park just outside the door and the children can enjoy the landscaped space; safe from traffic and away from the general public.

Inside the main building you will find a Dining Room with seating for 100 as well as a Common Room with digital television that is ideal for group meetings, games evenings, or just as a shared lounge.

All rooms in the main building are part en suite, offering a hand basin and W.C. 

The recently refurbished shower rooms on each floor can be allocated to Girls/Boys and provide further hand basins with 16 individual shower rooms.

21 bedrooms in the main building are twin bedded with purpose built bunks converting each room to a capacity of four, so a total occupancy of 84 students and staff.

Additional bedrooms and washrooms are available in our annex building.

When it comes to meal times, most of our school parties choose Full Board and enjoy the locally based menus created by Brian Mann, our resident chef. We are happy to provide packed lunches and to accommodate any dietary requirements or special requests.

Our themed "party nights" have proved a highlight of many school visits, please ask for more details.

A Duty Manager is based at the Centre 24 hours a day and all our relevant team are subject to appropriate CRB processes.
