“65% of students said that following a residential they are less likely to give up when school work is difficult.”
“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 students and staff loved it and learnt so much… I was just astounded about what they learnt and could apply theory from the weekend. Thanks so much again, you really made my life so much easier knowing that the students were in hands of such knowledgeable and personable members of staff.””
“84% of students said that following a residential their behaviour will be better in school.”
“Kingswood is extremely organised and the children benefit a lot from the outdoor activities that they do not do at home. Our school has been for many years and have always had a positive experience.”
“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.”
“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.”
“91% of students said that since the residential they find their learning in school more interesting.”
“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.”
“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.”
