School Groups


The Isle of Wight, for many years, has been a popular and successful venue for educational school trips, and Westbrook is a perfect base for such a trip. We have been providing accommodation and tailored visits for the last 20 years and the majority of our schools return year after year.

Here at Westbrook we want to make your stay with us as stress free as possible. To achieve this and help you get the best out of your visit and we can plan an itinerary to suit your requirements.
Once here, there is a wide selection of venues to choose from dependent on your curriculum demands and choice. These include the island home of Queen Victoria - Osborne House,Carisbrooke Castle, Fort Victoria Planetarium, Havenstreet Steam Railway, Dinosaur Farm (including guided field trips) and much more. For help with this please e-mail Helen at for more information and ideas of what you can do on your residential. 

As part of our ministry as a Christian centre we can also offer relevant and stimulating assemblies enabling you to meet your statutory requirements.

For more information about booking a residential at Westbrook please see our 'How to Book' page. On this page you will find loads of downloadable PDF's for things like Prices and Leaders Information.

We have tried to make it even easier to come and stay with us by providing a 'Making Life Easier' page which is full of useful tips and information about how to get your holiday started. We have also developed basic package holidays to make organising a trip away that little bit less stressful. 

We are pleased to be able to offer Residential visits for schools in two different ways.

Firstly, we can offer you a price (per person/per night) for full board and use of the many on-site facilities, leaving you to set your own program for the week.

Alternatively, we can offer a fully managed package which would include many worthwhile educational trips to Isle of Wight’s notable places of interest, plus use of our many excellent on-site facilities.   

A KS2 four night residential week at Westbrook would include the following:

Full bed and board
Hovercraft travel across the Solent and coach travel around the island
Daily offsite educational trips
Onsite activities run by our centre staff

All this would be organised by us with your input and approval.

The cost of the package will vary according to the activities chosen for the week.
