Year 6 residential field trip
The Year 6 residential field trip is to Marchants Hill. Marchants Hill is situated near Hindhead in Surrey, just south of London. Like Sayers Croft, it is set in rolling countryside, and all the activities that the children undertake are set within the grounds of the 45 acre site.
Marchants Hill specialises in organising and leading school journeys for primary and secondary school groups and offers a wide range of adventure-based activities. All activities are specifically aimed at the age group of the students participating and led by professionally trained and accredited members of PGL staff.
Pupils sleep in dormitory accommodation during their stay. Girls sleep in separate dormitories to the boys. The accompanying staff sleep in adjoining rooms. The self-contained dormitories contain en-suite washing and toilet facilities, as well as a communal area that is for the sole use of Hampden Gurney pupils.
Marchants Hill offers a menu with a range of options for breakfast, lunch and evening meals. With foreknowledge, it can also cater for children who do not eat particular foods. This includes those who do not eat meat at all, as well as those that may only not eat a particular type of meat (i.e. beef, pork, lamb or fish). Vegetarians can also be catered for, as can vegetarians who do not eat fish, and vegans.
More information about the centre and the site can be found on the Marchants Hill website.
