Vale School

10/10 for educational value, with particular reference to the use of growth mindsets, plus the best food I have ever had in all my years of organising residential trips.

Parent feedback, Framfield School

3 of my 4 daughters have had residential weeks at Bowles and the little one can’t wait. You give them an absolutely marvellous time – the week seems packed full of challenging activities, fun and adventure and each one has come home slightly changed by the experience – more confident, happy, settled and buzzing with tales of their experiences and team skills. Thank you. Merna

Laing O’Rourke

The ethics of Bowles also sat well with our core aims – we strive to be innovative leaders of change but with a sense of community responsibility and a desire to contribute in some way and with the charitable trust receiving all the profits from events like ours, we felt it was a small way in which we could make a difference. We had such an eventful programme that we are now planning future events with the team at Bowles!

Reigate Priory Junior School

Thank you very much for providing, year on year, exemplary outdoor education. The culture of learning is unique in a beautiful and very well maintained setting. An excellent mix of safe and inspirational, life-changing risk taking with a sense of achievement and purpose.
