Working with teachers and experts in their fields, we have prepared a range of fully flexible residential options that are ideal for school groups of all shapes, sizes and abilities. Whether you are looking for a base for self-led adventures, a National Curriculum-linked package with activities delivered for you, classroom space for revision breaks or field study follow up, or an adrenaline fuelled action adventure course – we have it all, and a little bit more for good measure.

We have been enriching the lives of young people since 1932, so you can trust in us to provide you with expert guidance on how to plan a residential that is perfectly tailored to your needs. Plus, over 80 of our sites have LOtC accreditation, the most of any provider in the UK, and counting, so you can be confident that you are making the right choice for your educational school trip.

From staying in a genuine Norman castle to a stunning Victorian mansion, a £1.2 million renovated beach retreat in an old smuggler’s cove, to a £1.3 million refurbished mountainside base 1,000 feet above sea level, YHA’s diverse network offers great value accommodation in England and Wales’ most inspiring locations.

Much more than just a holiday, a few days away at one of our fantastic locations can make a massive difference to a child coping with ill health or a difficult home life. A YHA stay brings big adventure, bonded friendships and memories for life. With us, young people get to explore England and Wales and discover their own potential. For some children challenging circumstances means travel isn’t usually possible and our Breaks Programmes are here to help.
