Residential Visits and Experiences




The Charterhouse Outdoor Centre – October 2023 – Year 6

The year 6 children and staff visited Charterhouse outdoor centre in October,  where all the children had the opportunity to complete a range of out door activities.

“Charter House was really good as it was a wonderful experience to have, I felt like I was pushed outside of my comfort zone, but in a good way and I was challenged.”

Poppy, age 10 years.

The Charterhouse Centre

Located 30 miles south of Bristol on the top of the Mendip Hills in one of Somerset’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) the Charterhouse outdoor centre has been providing school residentials since the 60’s!

Superbly updated, it is within walking distance of the spectacular Cheddar Gorge which is named as the second greatest natural wonder in Britain!

Charterhouse offers the more usual exciting outdoor activities; however, it also offers the opportunity to get ‘up close and personal’ with the impressive local geology with our expert caving instructors. Caving at Charterhouse allows exploration of the Mendip cave system evoking feelings of a Tolkien-esq landscape where there is always the possibility of spotting a Hobbit or even Gollum!

There will be opportunities to take part in a range of outdoor activities including:

  • Rock Climbing
  • Caving
  • Archery
  • Low Ropes
  • Rock Abseiling

Further information regarding the cost and more detailed information will be sent out in January / February 2024
