Kingswood welcomes a wide range of schools every year, from inner city comprehensives to small primary schools and international students. Working alongside you, we use our experience to tailor our programmes to your group's learning objectives, to give all your students a brilliant residential experience, maximising their potential and inspiring them to go on and learn more. We believe residentials are an unparalleled opportunity for young people to learn and develop outside the classroom.


Residential school trips for primary schools

We offer a whole range of programmes specially designed to fire imaginations and stimulate the minds of our younger students.

All our programmes are tailored to your groups individual needs. We have a number of programmes that are ideally suited to younger students including our Young Explorers module that’s a perfect introduction to outdoor learning for KS1 students and our popular Transition programme specifically developed with the start of a new school year in mind.

Residential school trips for secondary schools

Kingswood residentials for secondary schools give students the chance to take away more than just fantastic memories. Each residential is uniquely tailored to fit your class' learning objectives and support your curriculum. And that's not all, a Kingswood adventure builds confidence in young people to try challenges in new environments, increases engagement back in the classroom and develops essential life skills for the next stage of their learning journey.

Learning Away and Brilliant residentials

As a result of working over five years with partner schools, Learning Away, developed by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation has begun to understand what high-quality residential learning means, and have coined the phrase 'brilliant residentials' to describe these experiences.
