My name is Jane Johnson and I am the Virtual School Head for ‘Children Looked After’ in Manchester City Council. My sister Claire Redrobe is the deputy head at Ashgate Special School and a massive fan of Ghyll Head!! It is 20 years since I last came here. It's been too long! I will be back again with young people through our fostering team and maybe with my own Virtual School Team too! Thank you

Our pupils have greatly benefited from an inspirational Duke of Edinburgh Qualifying Expedition experience at Ghyll Head Activity Centre.
The Facilities, Instructors, Location, Pod Accommodation & Activities were second to none" 

Every detail had been well thought through, planned and delivered to provide our pupils with an unforgettable and memorable positive experience. The cultural capital they have gained over just one weekend will empower them to take on challenges in the future and promote permanent and positive change in their Personal development.

As my first experience of a residential, the bar has been set high for what I expect from all others I go on, in my teaching career. I thought you were so inclusive in an environment that could easily not be. You definitely built our children’s resilience in such a short amount of time. 
Thank you again, enjoy the next few weeks before summer camps start. 

Rachel Welch- Teacher- St John Fisher and St Thomas More Primary School

What a fantastic experience and brilliant resource for our children. Our group had the opportunity to take part in so many different activities that they wouldn't usually do. It was a pleasure and a privilege to see them develop in confidence and find their 'inner strength' over the two days that they were away. Thank you to ALL of you for your enthusiasm and commitment to outdoor education.

Meryl Blackburn Assistant Head, Chorlton Park Primary School

Ghyll Head was great, I loved getting wet! Hills all around. Good scenery? You bet!
You were all so friendly which helped us have fun, Letting us do the nightline, which many had never done.
 Launching onto the zip wire was my favourite bit. Heading onto the lake, we were working as a team, Even the Dead Shed was fantastic, even though we weren’t so keen.
And so I’m saying thank you to all of you back there, Didn’t we just love the fresh air!
