The Chatsworth is a stone’s throw from Swanage Bay, perfect for schools wanting to discover the Jurassic coast and visit the seaside.

The centre is in Swanage, Dorset and has a rich tradition. Opened in 1972, it is made up of traditional Seaside Guesthouses. With the Jurassic coastline and open countryside right on the doorstep, it is an exciting venue for outdoor adventure and focused learning in a picturesque location.

With the focus firmly on Education, Inspiration & Play, The Chatsworth is the perfect centre for any age group of students, with superb facilities for outdoor adventure and coastal programmes.

Field Study courses take advantage of the World Heritage Site and rich local environment available for Geography GCSE and A Level students. Old Harry is just around the corner students do not have too far to go to study. Venture further afield for the natural wonders of Poole Harbour, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

The main building incorporates dormitory and recreational areas including an all-weather outdoor area, dining hall, as well as five study rooms and classrooms. Although made up of 5 separate buildings, the centre is compact and all the facilities are within easy reach. The centre has its own swimming pool.

Do you have any testimonials from previous schools we can include?
I just wanted to convey my wholehearted thanks to all the staff at the Chatsworth Centre that we came into contact with during our recent stay. At all times from the pre arrival to being with you in Dorset all staff were friendly and approachable... This made a massive impact on the success of the field work programme and learning of all the staff and students involved. We had a trip that will remain within our students for the rest of their lives.
