What we offer on a school trip
Arvon offers five-day residential writing courses for schools and groups, tutored by two professional authors, and held in historic writing houses in countryside locations. At the heart of Arvon is the desire to encourage anyone, regardless of background, to find their voice through writing; whether you want to bring talented writers, or individuals who need more support, each week is shaped around the participants? needs and interests.
An Arvon week provides a chance to develop writing and language skills, alongside imagination and creativity. The experience can also improve participants? communication skills and self-belief. For many, these five days can be life-changing.
The 19th century building has been given a thoroughly 21st century renovation. All 16 bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, the main workshop room has a hand crafted table for twenty and a growing library, and a lift gives accessibility to every bedroom. The house sits within 26 acres of woodland, with a spring-fed lake and inspiring walks.
