What we offer on a school trip
Our popular programmes are designed to enhance the national curriculum in subjects such as history, science, geography, English, etc. as well as team building and communication programmes.
With over 20 years experience, and an exemplary safety record, we have created two unique study centres in safe, tranquil settings. Each group is treated individually and time is taken to assess their needs to provide a range of stimulating educational activities with comfortable accommodation.
The historical settings of both field study centres are truly inspirational; a 12th century Manor House provides the centrepiece for Hooke Court Dorset and the 18th century Georgian Manor House at Hooke Court Wales stands proudly above the sea in Carmarthenshire. These historical characters are used to their full potential to enhance the expansive range of educational programmes that we offer.
With a wealth of experience from primary to GCSE level teaching staff, our qualified and knowledgeable tutors have enabled Hooke Court to develop a wide range of programmes that enhance and supplement the National Curriculum allowing children to access learning at their own level. We pride ourselves on providing excellent opportunities for children to develop their team work, communication and negotiating skills through stimulating and fun activities.
Beyond our extensive landscaped grounds at Hooke Court Dorset, just 11 miles away, lies the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and some of West Dorset's finest attractions, which provide yet more opportunities for fun and exciting ways to learn and grow. In contrast just a short walk from Hooke Court Wales you will find the most beautiful estuary where you can wander for miles on sandy beaches, explore rock pools and enjoy magnificent views of Llansteffan Castle.
