More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider

Hooke Court in Dorset is the perfect choice for your school residential or day trips. With over 20 years experience, and an exemplary safety record, we have created two unique study and activity centres in safe, tranquil settings. Each group is treated individually and time is taken to tailor a programme to meet the specific needs of the visit.

With a wealth of experience from primary to GCSE level teaching staff, our qualified and knowledgeable tutors have enabled Hooke Court to develop a wide range of programmes that enhance and supplement the National Curriculum.

Located just 11 miles from the Jurassic Coast in the small village of Hooke in rural West Dorset, Hooke Court Dorset is a magnificent field study centre in which to stimulate and educate children.

  • Grade II listed 14th century manor house
  • Stunning historical, rural location that brings learning to life 
  • Accommodation for up to 190 
  • Camping facilities in the summer months 
  • Twenty-four acres of landscaped grounds and woodlands  
  • Playground, playing fields and low ropes course
  • All groups are fully catered for and accommodated in their own area

Programme Overview

Hooke Court provides a range of educational activities for all age groups. Our activities can be enjoyed over any number of days, with as many tutored sessions as you choose.

Our tutors are all trained to deliver high quality educational sessions outside the classroom environment. The activities are all designed to bring particular subject areas to life in a way which is not always easy in the classroom. Our aim is to ensure that your class will go back to school having learnt a lot without even realising it!

Planning your programme

You may choose a whole programme of activities based around one particular topic, or you may pick and choose from a variety of different topics. Should you wish to study something that we do not offer, please ask us – we pride ourselves on being able to provide programmes to suit everyone. If you are undertaking one of our 3 day packages you may choose the equivalent of 4 half day and 2 evening options.

If you require any assistance regarding our activities please do not hesitate to contact us. Our staff will be very happy to advise you on which activities may best fulfil your requirements and which activities will work well together to make a cohesive and enjoyable programme.
