Battisborough House is an impressive south-facing, detached Victorian house with outstanding sea views.
Owned and operated by Hall Grove School as a residential Field Study Centre, it is located in an idyllic location overlooking the sea on the South Devon coast.
From Year 4 (age 8+), boys and girls visit Battisborough annually to carry out fieldwork projects. This has proved to be an excellent way of enriching their classroom studies and helps prepare them for Common Entrance and future exams. The children learn about living away from home in a community which is of enormous benefit to all pupils and of special importance to those going on to boarding senior school.
There are 6 acres of grounds, including a hard tennis court, a riding arena, a small football field, a badminton and croquet lawn, woodland for making dens and a large terrace which runs the length of the house.
The school has a close relationship with the neighbouring dairy farm. Each visiting year group learns about life on a modern farm and see its workings over the changing seasons. Farm-made 'Surfing Cow' ice cream is always a particular highlight!
