Checklist for St Ives

“Another fantastic GCSE residential trip down to St. Ives using Cohort Hostel. Staff and facilities fantastic as usual. Clean facilities, friendly staff and great support with planning the trip. The location makes getting around the town easy and there is plenty to do for young people. The students particularly loved the deckchair film night Cohort put on for us!”
