Learning outside the classroom

St Ives is the perfect place to bring a class whether you’re studying the arts, humanities, sciences, sport or just want a great learning-outside-the-classroom experience.

We will work with you prior and during your stay to ensure you and your students have everything you need to make the most of your time in St Ives and don’t forget to ask about the free stay for trip organisers.

Go to our Planning your school trip page for more information.

Art & Design trips

Be inspired by the art in St Ives. Artists, students and just people who love painting flock here to sketch the views that can be spotted from every corner, visit the Tate and Barbara Hepworth Museum and soak up the town’s famous light and artistic appeal.

Located in the centre of St Ives and within walking distance of all the art institutions and galleries we are the perfect place to base yourself for an inspirational art trip.

Visit our Art Trips page for more info.

Activity & Enrichment trips

From watersports to beach cleans and cycling to sand sculpture workshops, we can help you organise a fantastic activity itinerary for any age group. With plenty of lounge space for collapsing into at the end of the day we are the ideal place to stay if your days are packed out.

See our Activity Trips page for more info.

Geography trips

The physical and human geography of the region; its coastline, geology and industrial heritage make Cornwall a great destination and base for geography field trips.

Geography trips to St Ives not only benefit from the town itself, with all its facilities and activites, but also from its location in a truly diverse part of Cornwall.

See our Geography Trips page for more info.

Primary School trips

We offer everything from accommodation-only to full board options and everything in between, we are also small enough to ensure that your pupils are the only guests in the hostel; this makes us particularly well-placed to host your primary school residential.

Go to our Schools & Colleges page for more information or get in touch to arrange your free stay which we offer to primary school trip organisers in advance of any trip being booked.

Group use of Cohort Hostel

If you’ve got a large educational group why not take over the hostel? Group use of the hostel starts at just £650/night for up to 54 people, this could be as little as around £12 per person per night depending on the size of the group.
