Primary School Residential Activity Weeks & Weekends

Our Centre is Ideally Suited for Primary School Residential Trips

Two key reasons why our centre is so well suited for primary school residential trips: firstly, our small size and secondly, the experience and special approach of our staff team.

Outdoor Adventure caters for approximately 65 pupils, plus staff, which enable the instructors to really get to know and give each pupil a very personal experience. The programme is genuinely tailored to your group and is delivered with a calm and unrushed approach enabling teachers to enjoy the experience along side their pupils. As a teacher you are also given the opportunity to really get to know your pupils and make that essential bond which we are told makes all the difference when back at school. The pupils also get to see their teachers in a totally different setting and by sharing all the new experiences with them, trust and team spirit builds throughout the week.

For year groups, we can offer your school sole occupancy of our centre which is now very unusual in this industry.

These residential activity trips prove very effective in supporting many of the Key Stage 2 curriculum requirements such as key skills, PSHE and citizenship.

  • "The instructors’ understanding of the children was exemplary and they pitched the instruction level perfectly. The target setting and reinforcement at the beginning and end of each activity left the children in no doubt what they had achieved. In short, we achieved so much more than we have at other Centres."

Genuine and Caring Approach in a Healthy and Positive Setting 

For many children this is often their first time away from home and can be a very powerful learning experience. To watch some go quickly from being homesick, to chatting on our front lawn with their friends is always very rewarding. Everyday your pupils have opportunities to experience success and to celebrate their achievements, making a real difference to their self esteem and confidence.

On the teambuilding challenges we have fun looking at the vital ingredients that make up a true team and how to be positive and enthusiastic about solving problems. We look at what makes someone a good communicator and put active listening to the test! Pupils become aware that everyone’s opinion and input matters and are encouraged to look for and value the strengths in others and respect each others differences.

 

Learning, developing and reflecting on experiences

Our review and reflection area looking out across the ocean gives a great opportunity for teachers and pupils to reflect on the day and think about what everyone has learned about themselves and others, as well as how they can benefit from this back at school and in other areas of their life.
