  • Residential trips for schools



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 during residential trips for schools, 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. Residential trips for schools to South Cerney Outdoor offer invaluable benefits to young people in every age group.

The locations of outdoor residential centres for schools can be as important as the facilities they have to offer. Taking part in activities in an inspirational countryside setting makes the experience all the more pleasurable and memorable for the children and young adults involved.
