School Residential Trips – The Small and Personal Approach
Since 1981 we have resisted the pressure to expand so we could remain one of the small residential activity centres in the UK, catering for up to 70 pupils and provide a now rare, truly personal and quality experience. This ensures every pupil gets the maximum personal development from their residential school trip and also provides a powerful teambuilding opportunity for your school.
Spectacular and wild coastal centre location
Since 1981 we have resisted the pressure to expand, determined to remain one of the small activity centres in the UK. We only cater for up to 70 and can even offer your group sole occupancy. It’s this that enables us to provide a truly personal and quality experience to your children. This gives your school a rare alternative to the large impersonal adventure centres, ensuring every child gets the maximum development from their Residential. It also provides a powerful team building opportunity for your group.
Real activities in real environments
Using spectacular activity locations, we are committed to getting children away from man-made simulated activities, out in nature, experiencing the real activity in its true environment. This gives them the precious and now scarce chance to be grounded for a while and benefit from the awe-inspiring moments only nature and true adventurous activities can provide. All activities are within walking distance or a 10 minute minibus drive, so there is no time wasted and children are given an unrushed, worthwhile, quality activity session.
Fully customised residential for your school
We provide a genuinely tailored programme for your school, and ensure we spend the time talking with you before your trip, to design a week which achieves exactly what you are looking for. As a small activity centre we can even remain flexible when you are with us. Teachers say that these two things have played a major part in making their trip so successful and memorable. We also understand how challenging it can be for teachers under time pressures, to organise a residential trip and work hard behind the scenes to make the whole experience run as smoothly and stress free as possible.
Sole occupancy available
The moment you arrive with us, you become immersed in a magnificent naturally wild coastal environment. In a breathtaking setting for your Residential each morning you will wake up to the roar of the surf and incredible views up and down the coast. This creates a very special experience and we are told that this really focuses and engages the children in why they are here. It also helps take away the obsession to be constantly on-line. The Centre is perched on the cliff top within 10 acres of beautiful grounds, designated a European Area of Conservation and Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Special staff that make such a difference
Said to us so many times now over the years, we never underestimate the importance of having the right team with the right coaching experience and attitude to deliver your residential. Yes, they are highly qualified and vetted, but what makes the real difference is that they love what they do and have a genuine passion for the outdoors. Our instructors enjoy sharing their enthusiasm with your children and have the drive to show them how much can be gained from their Residential. They have made this their career and you will find them worlds apart from gap year instructors.
Outdoor Adventure is situated on the unspoilt, rugged north Cornwall coast. It is easy to get to and only 1 hour from the M5 junction at Exeter
