Why and How we do what we do


Outdoor residential centres for schools provide a welcome break from the formal, fairly regulated school day. Life-long interests in new activities and sports can be forged along with skills in problem-solving, team-working, communication and leadership. Socially, children experience living with and sharing with their peers and learn how to compromise, to listen and to respect others. All of these skills, experiences and interests are excellent preparation for the next step in children’s lives – secondary school, higher education or the world of work.

As one of the most scenic residential activity centres in the Cotswolds, South Cerney Outdoor offers a range of outdoor residential programmes for schools, on either a self-catering or fully catered basis, including

  • the two-day Explorer package with a range of taster activities to choose from
  • the Adventurer package which includes both daytime and evening adventure-based activities
  • the Discovery package , a progressive learning programme focused on developing children's confidence through communication, team working and problem solving through a carefully selected programme of outdoor challenges.
  • the Engagement package, a programme specifically developed to explore behaviour management, relationships, problem solving and communication.

South Cerney Outdoor will ensure that the correct balance is struck between providing the right environment for fostering independence and ensuring all children are safe. We can draw upon a coaching team with over 100 years of collective experience and which is expert at designing bespoke programmes for individual schools.
