Read what some of our other visitors had to say about their trip to St Michael's:

Our thanks to you and your staff for another memorable stay for our children at St.Michael's. This was the sixth year of Lady Bay School visits and a year 4 residential with you has become very much a part of our annual calendar. As I've said before, the Centre is absolutely ideal for primary aged children-in an excellent location-and what is so special about the Centre is that it supports learning across the curriculum. This year the children took part in learning experiences in history, geography, PE (outdoor and adventurous activities) and, of course, personal and social education.

Hathersage was the most fun and exciting time I've ever had! I really enjoyed my time at St.Michael's. I hoped the week wouldn't end but it did and I would really love to come back.

Great walks and curriculum links. Lots of talk about options for all (pupils).

Everyone who works in the Centre is always very friendly and welcoming! Thank you, we've had a great time as always!

Thank you for everything that you have done to make our stay at St Michael's a treat. All of my class agree it was epic and we would love to come again!

Centre staff are excellent. Always helpful and will bend over backwards to make your stay easier.

We had a wonderful family gathering this past weekend at your Centre. Voted it a big hit! All the children wanted more nights. Everything was perfect. Grateful thanks to all who prepared it for us. The high standards throughout are a great testimony to you all.

Very welcoming. Knowledge and enthusiasm helps make this visit special. An excellent opportunity for children to experience a residential in a safe and secure environment.

The whole experience is of value to our children. It is the first time many of our children have been away from their parents- so it was a valuable 2 night experience.

As ever a wonderful visit. Excellent facilities and support. Thank you so much. Look forward to our next visit.

Thanks so much for what has been a lovely weekend! The venue was fantastic and felt like home right away.

The rooms were fantastic they were not too big and not too small they were just perfect. I loved all the meals. They were delicious. They tasted as if they were from heaven, especially the rice pudding.

Superb-everyone at St.Michael's goes out of their way to make the visit a success.

I would like to thank you for running an excellent course this weekend, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The information and knowledge I gained is first class. I can take the skills forward and pass them on to future students.
