The Kilve Court and Charterhouse Centres are four residential and outdoor education centres. There’s Kilve Court itself, The Outdoor Centre, Great Wood, all in the Quantocks Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and Charterhouse on the Mendip Hills, 20 minutes from Bristol.
We enable young people to discover what they can do – rather than focusing on what they can’t. Every child is encouraged to imagine, discover and achieve, with 100% support from our fantastic instructors.

You can come for the day, a weekend or a week. and there may be some bursaries to give a helping hand if money is tight.
