Education Visits

Schools and Academies

Join us for a residential or day visit and we will use your learning objectives to plan a programme suited to your needs; giving you the opportunity to enrich your curriculum and link outdoor experiences to key stage learning and pupil development. Courses are fully accessible offering an exciting and valuable learning experience for all students.

To experience the full outdoor education experience join us for the full week (four nights or more). That way groups form good relationships and there are plenty of opportunities for pupils to develop and refine strategies and skills to improve performance. If a full week isn’t what you’re looking for, a split week might be; this means your organisation is with us for the whole week but during that time you escort two groups for either two or three nights each, a great option for any school group and suitable for younger pupils or those with additional needs.

Weekend stays suit a range of client groups from schools, youth clubs, community groups and even staff groups and your stay can be extended to Monday morning.

Our new Hive Pod Camping facility provides an exciting new option for schools and youth groups. Providing a low cost option for a group of up to 45 (incl staff) the facility can be taken on a self programmed/self catered basis with the option to buy in activities using our experienced staff. Talk to us about our Tribal village course our bushcraft themed program perfect for KS2 students.

Why book with us for residential school trips and educational visits

We have been providing high quality outdoor education courses for many years. Our approach is student centred, by using experienced and well qualified staff we are able to offer continuity. Each instructor will stay with their assigned group for the duration of the course allowing them to build relationships with students that enable them to differentiate and adapt to the needs of each individual. We ensure that we liaise with teaching staff/group leaders prior to and during the course to make sure we are able to deliver fully the aims envisaged by them.
