We get loads of great schools coming to stay with us at all times of the year. We decided to interview one of our more regular visitors – Sarah Beales, Head of Art at Queen Anne’s School in Caversham. She was super co-operative, thank you Sarah!

We love… Barnoon Workshop, a dedicated space for Arts & Crafts activities in St Ives. Perfect for individuals, schools or groups; their classes range from drop-in through to more in-depth courses. Barnoon Workshop opened around the same time as Cohort Hostel so we feel a particular affinity to them.
We got together recently and had a chat with founders Pete Giles and Zoe Eaton to find out what they love about St Ives and why they opened Barnoon Workshop.

St Ives is a great place for a school trip; great art, iconic institutions, beautiful beaches and no need at all to trek umpteen children on and off public transport or coaches. Over the past year we’ve had some great schools and colleges visiting the area and staying with us: The teachers always look like they’re having a relatively stress-free time of it and the kids love the beaches and town.
Now we know there’s loads to do in the area but what does a school trip really consist of and what do you need to watch out for if you’re bringing your class to St Ives?
