Over The Wall Children’s Charity is delighted to announce they are due to take occupancy of the former Ockbrook School as its new headquarters and national location to run its award-winning residential camps for seriously ill children, and their families.

1 in 10 children in the UK are living with long-term illness, and this number is growing.
Imagine a place where every child with a long-term illness is supported and empowered to live their best life. This is the vision that drives us to undertake our biggest project yet. Our transformational residential experiences will serve over 100,000 children living with long-term illness during the 40-year lease. We will encourage them to see beyond their challenges and will help put the child back into childhood.


Our Future in Ockbrook

Join us on Thursday 16 May at the former Ockbrook School, learn more about who we are, ask your questions and be a part of our journey.


What to Expect on The Day

We’re holding two sessions to allow you to hear Over The Wall’s aspirations for the former school. We’ll give you a brief overview of the timeline for the renovations and how you can stay updated throughout our journey. There will also be the opportunity to ask our CEO and the team any burning questions. Refreshments will be provided.

No need to reserve your place, drop in on the day. Parking on-site is available.
