Visits and Residentials


At Gillas Lane, we provide opportunities for all of our children to experience a range of visits and residentials to ensure they have rich, wide experiences.

We also know that these opportunities can come at a cost that can be prohibitive to some of our families. To ensure full inclusivity, we work with partner agencies who are able to subsidise and fund these essential elements of our Gillas Lane curriculum – we are extremely proud that the vast majority of our visits are at NO COST to our families.

The Sir Tom Cowie Charitable Trust are incredibly understanding of the barriers facing our families and they fully fund the vast majority of our visits – we’d be lost without them!
