“53% of students said that a residential trip helped them to do better in their school work.”
“The children have a great time. They get the opportunity to do lots of new things. There is an emphasis on teamwork and challenging yourself.”
“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.”
“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.”
“72% of students said that their teacher knows them better following a residential.”
“A fun, hands on experience for children that allows them to have freedom and take risks but in a safe environment.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Our school comes to Kingswood every year and, without fail, our children gain so much from the experience. They come away more confident and more connected as friends because of the breadth of opportunities on offer led by the amazing instructors.”
“91% of students said that since the residential they find their learning in school more interesting.”
