About us

Working together for young people for over 130 years.

We are Woodrow High House. As part of the charity London Youth, we’re on a mission to improve the lives of young people of all backgrounds and abilities, challenging them to become the best they can be. Young people need opportunities outside school to have fun with their friends, to learn new skills and to make a positive change in their communities.

Woodrow High House is a grade II listed manor house buried deep in the Chilterns. But that’s just the start. Explore 26 acres of grounds, dive into the pool and speed around our off-road mountain bike tracks. Stay with us for a residential or make use of our leisure facilities: the choice is yours.

London Youth has owned and operated Woodrow since 1945. Each year, more than 7,000 children and young people visit us. We give each and every one of them the experience of a lifetime.

Our vision is that all young people grow up healthy, able to express themselves, navigate a fulfilling career and make a positive contribution in their communities.

Our mission is to support and challenge young people to become the best they can be; developing their confidence, resilience and relationship skills.
