Northeast AND Northwest holidays at Queen Mary’s

In 2019 our Northeast AND our Northwest holidays will be held at one of our most established (and most beloved) venues: Queen Mary's.

Queen Mary’s School is in a picturesque area of North Yorkshire. It is situated near Topcliffe which is a Christian girls’ boarding school during the rest of the year.

There are excellent facilities at Queen Mary’s including their fantastic swimming pool.

It is very close to lots of local attractions which makes days out even better, although journeys are long enough for a good old coach sing-a-long.

The catchment area for Queen Mary’s is usually centred around Middlesbrough, Stockton, Darlington and Newcastle, although we have accepted children from other surrounding areas too (within 40 minutes of Middlesbrough).

Our volunteers are amazing people who come from a variety of backgrounds, teachers, nurse, doctors, physios to name just a few of the many talents brought to the holiday, and all with an enthusiastic and caring nature.
