About Grosvenor Hall
Following a multi-million pound upgrade, Grosvenor Hall near Ashford opened its doors to visiting schools and colleges in 2010. The former Police Training Centre has been hailed as one of the best educational activity centres in Europe. The centre is just minutes from J9 of the M20 and consists of almost 200,000 sq ft and 50 acres of educational, adventure, sports and recreational facilities within a fully secure site.
Grosvenor Hall represents a new standard in the provision of learning outside the classroom with superb teacher and student accommodation, a 25,000 sq ft sports hall, a 25m swimming pool and a £1m high-adrenaline activity park. The activity park includes some of the most exciting sessions available in the UK including the unique Sky Climb installation which can cater for an entire school group, a double-power fan, triple zip wire, climbing and abseiling towers and double 3G swings. We also have a Blu-ray cinema, radio station, indoor and outdoor laser arena and recreation club.
