School Residentials at Fort Purbrook, Peter Ashley Activity Centres in Portsmouth.

The Peter Ashley Activity Centres welcomes a wide variety of school residentials every year from comprehensive and inner city schools, primary schools and private schools along with everything in between. From the initial enquiry, we listen to your needs and using our experience we tailor our packages to your group’s learning objectives. We believe in residentials as a brilliant opportunity for young people to study and grow outside the classroom.

You can choose whether to stay inside the 19th century Fort which can cater for up to 100 people, or camp on its parade ground in our new camping facilities. Whilst staying with us, we offer a wide range of catering options. You can also choose to hire out the facility on a self-catering basis or relax and enjoy our fully-catered option during your stay.

Our programming team will work with you to develop your Fort Purbrook visit to create a truly unique learning opportunity and support your curriculum. From stage one we work together to produce an exclusive programme that offers a truly inspirational learning experience. That’s not all, even a day visit to the Peter Ashley Activity Centre builds self-esteem in young people to try new challenges. All our sessions are designed to enhance students’ confidence and can be developed and combined to meet your curriculum and learning needs.

Feedback

“We bought a small group of school students, aged 13-16 for a one night residential and can’t thank the Centre enough for their hard work during our stay. The facilities were superb – bedrooms and showers were spotlessly clean and much more than adequate for our needs. The food provided was home made and delicious. Served piping hot with plenty of it – perfect after a long day of activities. We had chosen which activities we wanted to do before we arrived and they didn’t disappoint. The staff were knowledgeable and delivered each session in such a way that everyone got a chance to have a go, even the most reluctant of students were encouraged to take part. The staff were always on hand and engaged brilliantly with both students and staff. We honestly cannot thank you enough for making our residential a success. Book us in for next year, we will be back!” – 5* – Zoe Adams, Admiral Lord Nelson School
