An exciting venue for outdoor adventure and learning in a picturesque and easily accessible location, Staffordshire provides a welcoming and friendly environment
Our original Kingswood centre, where guests instantly feel at home
Particularly suited for younger students where all activities are close to the main buildings
Wide range of adventure activities available, from team building challenges and indoor initiatives, to high adrenaline experiences in the outdoor adventure apparatus
Our Staffordshire centre - the original Kingswood centre - was purpose-built for residential school visits and overlooks the picturesque beauty of the Wrekin and Clee Hills, within easy reach of Birmingham and the Midlands, just eight minutes from Junction 3 of the M54.
This compact centre is ideal for younger students and with all the facilities within easy reach of the main buildings, makes close teacher supervision easier. This ease is furthered by the close proximity of night lounges, situated at the end of each student dormitory corridor. All teacher rooms are close to student dormitories and contain en-suite bathrooms. Young people are kept safe and secure with boundary fencing and security gates around the centre.
Even though Staffordshire is more compact than our other centres, it still has a fantastic range of adventure activities to keep students smiling. Come rain or shine there is always a raft of activities from team building pursuits like team challenge and indoor initiatives, to high-adrenaline adventures such as zipwire and quad biking. The centre also has computer labs and indoor spaces.
Accommodation and catering
The centre can accommodate 200 young people in 6-12 bed dormitories.
Pupils sleep in warm purpose-built dormitory-style accommodation, with boys and girls on separate floors and gender-separated bathroom and shower facilities. Sheets, duvets and pillows are provided for all guests. Teacher rooms are at the end of each corridor.
To fuel young guests during a long day of thrilling adventure activities, we serve three hot meals per day, with lots of choice and seasonal variations. Each day there is a carefully balanced nutritional meal plan, recently updated to meet and exceed the latest Government standards on children’s meals.
Our recently refreshed teacher bedrooms are complete with contemporary furnishings, tea and coffee making facilities and a radio-alarm.
