What we offer on a school trip
It is now an outdoor education facility offering groups a chance to take part in challenging activities or a living historical experience.
The centre is located on the Hog's Back high above Guildford and not only offers a wide range of centre based activities but also the chance to explore the surrounding countryside and the Wey Navigation (canal). The Victorian Fort provides a stunning setting for our WW2 Home Front history days and Evacuee Residential visits - perfect for KS2.
Our activities are delivered by qualified and highly experienced outdoor education instructors. Whether you book for one day, a week or a weekly programme, our staff will facilitate a structured outdoor experience and engage with your group to maximise their learning opportunities.
Activities available at Henley Fort include: adventure/night walks, archery, canal boating, canoeing, challenge course, climbing and abseiling/bouldering, mountain biking, orienteering, team tasks, woodland skills and the 1940's World War 2 Home Front experiences - both day and residential.
Activities can be adapted for disabled groups including archery, orienteering, team tasks, woodland skills, canal boating and WW2 Home Front living history experiences.
Henley Fort is part of Surrey Outdoor Learning and Development which is a not for profit organisation focused on the personal development of young people.
SOLD is proud to be supporting the campaign for #Brilliant Residentials as a Learning Away champion. This campaign highlights the benefits of learning through high-quality residential experiences (backed by compelling research created through the Learning Away programme www.learningaway.org.uk ). The aim is to increase the number of residentials taking place across the UK, and improve the quality of the residential experiences. Ultimately, this aims to lead to improved resilience, relationships, achievement and brighter, brilliant futures for young people.
