“69% of primary students said that following a residential they get on better with other pupils in their class.”
“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.”
“91% of students said that since the residential they find their learning in school more interesting.”
“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.”
“72% of students said that their teacher knows them better following a residential.”
“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.”
“The centre is outstanding. It caters for the needs of all of our students, gives them skills for life, builds confidence, enhances leadership skills and gives them an experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives.”
“A extremely helpful team who made us feel very welcome. The site was ideal for our group and the activities were pitched at the appropriate level for our participants. We were kept well informed of future activities and this was a great benefit to us.”
“84% of students said that following a residential their behaviour will be better in school.”
“I have been coming to Kingswood for a few years now and the centre is getting better and better. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the activities have been great for the children.”
