“The Classroom on the Coast”

There are plenty of things for primary school groups to do in Robin Hoods Bay – many of our groups say that 4 nights isn’t long enough!

The rocky coastline, with large tidal range, provides a safe environment for rock pooling. Schools are guaranteed to find many examples of crabs, fish & other sea life. The beach is also renowned on the east coast for fossil hunting with ammonites regularly unearthed in the sand & shingle.

Many of the cottages in the village date from the 16th Century making it an ideal venue for urban schools to compare & contrast RHB with their own locality.

There are several circular walks from the village that vary in length from 1 up to 8 miles. The walks utilise the beach, the Cleveland Way coastal path & the disused Whitby to Scarborough railway line, all of which run through the village.

The vista of red roofs & the beach provide excellent subjects for sketching & other art-based activities.
For the evenings we can supply details of guest speakers who will visit the centre.

The Old School House has excellent facilities for Primary School residentials.

Our classroom & dining room can both accommodate up to 40 people. The classroom has the usual group centre resources of a flip chart, chalk board & a projection screen. We can arrange wireless broadband access as required but you will need to bring your own laptops & projectors.

A comfortable lounge area is provided for teaching staff to relax in the evening, along with a kitchen for making unlimited tea & coffee. Our bedrooms are ideally laid out to accommodate & supervise groups whilst still providing teaching staff with comfortable sleeping quarters.

We offer full board accommodation consisting of a cooked breakfast, packed lunch & three course evening meal.

We guarantee sole use for schools & can provide sleeping accommodation for up to 42 people in 9 bunk-bedded rooms.
