Hilltop Outdoor Centre in Sheringham on the North Norfolk Coast is a high quality, family run independent Outdoor Education centre. Hilltop offers a superior and unique experience, providing developmental visits to Schools and Educational groups. Set in 26 acres of picturesque woodlands Hilltop has modern and comfortable accommodation and facilities. There are two themed centres within the grounds of Hilltop, the rustic Woodland Lodge and the coastal style Seaview House which if booked together accommodate up to 160 children.
Hilltop has attained the Learning Outside of the Classroom badge and provides an exciting array of outdoor adventure activities such as High Ropes, Climbing Wall, Super Swing and the new Amazing Air Jump along with many Field study activities including Bush Craft, Coastal Erosion, Rocky Seashore and Rail & Trail.
Challenge by choice is our ethos with the emphasis on Learning through Activity, Enjoyment, Achievement, Discovery, Responsibility and Reflection. Hilltop is purpose built to ensure high levels of participation and activity. Field studies are designed to be active and involved rather than 'look and see' We work in groups of approx. 1:8 on activity and approx. 1:15 of field studies. We offer short swimming sessions in our outdoor heated swimming pool that is open from approx. end of April to Early October (Weather Dependent)
A balanced programme of activities and discovery sessions can be selected from the many activities available to suit your school objectives, aims and the demands of the National Curriculum. Hilltop also provides a full evening programme of games and activities.
