The Wetherdown Lodge is part of our site, and gives you the opportunity to stay over and get the best from The Sustainability Centre.

We provide full catering including buffet breakfasts, packed lunches and evening meals. All meals are home made by our on site chef of the Beech Cafe with local organic ingredients- a favourite with teachers and children alike!

With the wealth of opportunities in our grounds, we can arrange activities ranging from night walks and bushcraft courses to camp fires.

The Lodge: sustainability in action

The Lodge was once home to Royal Navy recruits. It has since been completely renovated and equipped with green energy technology that meets all the heating needs of the building. Pupils can monitor the output of the photovoltaic (solar energy) panels on the roof, and find out how much woodchip is needed to provide all the heat and hot water for their stay.

Pupils also recycle their lunch box waste, help to feed the chickens, use the low-flush option on toilets, and discover how hot the water can get thanks to those solar panels.
