THE LOCATION

Myerscough College dates back to the 19th century, when it was known as Lancashire College of Agriculture. Located in rural Lancashire, it boasts wonderful sports facilities, and is a safe haven for students to fully immerse themselves in their activities.

Location

Myerscough College is easily accessible from two airports and a railway station. It is:
  • 1 hour from Manchester Airport
  • 1 hour from Liverpool Airport
  • 30 minute drive from Preston Rail Station

Travel and Logistics

All airport transfers and pick-ups can be arranged by Challenger Sports at an additional cost. We use a reputable travel company to assist us in transporting students to and from camp. We have staff waiting at Liverpool and Manchester Airports to welcome students. We will also escort students back to their departure points and ensure that they board safely.

Upon arrival, we will check in all students and make sure their passports, pocket money, and travel tickets are kept in a safe place. They will also have the opportunity to call home.

If you wish to bring your child to the camp or collect them, we can provide directions upon request.
