For nearly 50 years we have welcomed guests of all ages, backgrounds and cultures. We simply ask that all groups respect the Christian faith and traditions that lie at the heart of the Priory and its 850 year old history.
We seek to encourage and develop self-respect, respect for others and for the natural environment we all share. This is achieved through a range of activities that promote participation, teamwork, personal challenge, independence, friendship and personal responsibility.
Whether groups follow an active or reflective programme we aim to provide a positive and enriching experience of heritage, countryside and community life in a Christian environment that will be remembered for a lifetime.
I have been working at Marrick Priory since 2001. I was fortunate to have some great role models as a youngster through school, church and voluntary organisations and I got involved with Outdoor Education from a young age. I am always inspired when I see people achieve things they never thought they could do!
I’ve been a Deputy Head at Marrick Priory since 2011. There are so many reasons I love what I do, but I particularly enjoy introducing people to new experiences and challenging them to realise their full potential. When not working I spend my free time around the Yorkshire Dales sharing my love of the outdoors with my husband and young family.
I have been involved with coaching, in some form, for around 30 years. I love seeing people achieve that 'magic moment' - when they accomplish something they never knew they were capable of. In my spare time, I enjoy sharing it with my family; telemark skiing, sea kayaking, climbing, and walking our wonderful hills.
