"Thank you for accommodating us so well at Barrow House. The hostel is amazing and we had an absolutely fabulous time. Thanks to all the fantastic staff there. I certainly wouldn't hesitate in recommending you as a venue."

Revision residentials

Many schools find it highly beneficial to take small groups on revision residentials, particularly for students on the borderline of a D/C grade at GCSE.

We hope that our spacious grounds, delicious meals, quiet location, friendly staff, and inspiring views will motivate students to fulfil their potential. Revision residentials allow teachers and students to concentrate effectively, working together for long-lasting benefits.

An itinerary which includes free time in the grounds, a local walk, or some adventure activities (such as kayaking on the lake) makes revision fun and rewarding. In addition, a residential experience, no matter how short, fosters co-operation and respect between students and leaders, with personal confidence and stronger working relationships developing beyond the residential.

We expect groups to provide their own tuition for revision residentials, but please let us know if you require help with a particular topic.
