“A fun, hands on experience for children that allows them to have freedom and take risks but in a safe environment.”
“We have been very well looked after, the kids have enjoyed themselves and the activities have been well organised. It has been a relatively easy trip for the staff as many things have been organised for us but we have still been with the children all the time so have been able to experience what they have been doing, and join in if we have wanted to. The food has been excellent and the rooms are great.”
“65% of students said that following a residential they are less likely to give up when school work is difficult.”
“Instructors subject knowledge is excellent and their understanding of the demands of the exam specification and controlled assessments is good. The instructors are also able to work flexibly around what you require.”
“91% of students said that since the residential they find their learning in school more interesting.”
“Our school have been visiting the Chateau for the last eight years and every time the experience for our children has been amazing. The tailored programme and range of activities is fantastic. Our children return from the Chateau buzzing a true trip of a lifetime.”
“53% of students said that a residential trip helped them to do better in their school work.”
“Fantastic for the children, it's like they have grown a foot taller in a week. Quiet and shy children have come out of themselves and confident children have developed leadership and group work skills.”
“We have come to Kingswood for several years. It has always been well organised, safety conscious and great fun for the children.”
“72% of students said that their teacher knows them better following a residential.”
