We are blessed to have the Diocescan retreat centres of Alton Castle and Soli House in this area.  Both are situated in the beautiful village of Alton (near Alton Towers) in the Staffordshire Moorlands.  The retreat centres offer our students the opportunity to stop and reflect on their faith and personal relationship with Christ.


Alton Castle 

Alton Castle is actually in a Castle.  The Castle has a history going back to Medieval times and strong links with the Church.  In 1996, the Castle reopened as a retreat centre where, students from St Margaret Ward were the first to visit.

The Castle offers our young people the opportunity to come together and reflect on their faith.  It offers them the opportunity to pray and worship.

Soil House

Soli House was originally in Stratford-upon-Avon but moved to the village of Alton in recent years.  It offers students, from year 9 onwards the opportunity to reflect and grow in their faith.
