Information for Parents

All Kingswood residential centres are safe and secure destinations, offering an authentic 'British' feel, that creates a great environment for students to express themselves.

Accredited learning

Our quality English language and adventure courses give students the opportunity to improve their language skills in a vibrant and exciting environment.

Our classes are taught by qualified English language teachers and we provide a varied learning programme, combining classroom learning with exciting adventure activity sessions and excursions where students can put their new language skills into action.

Grosvenor Hall in Kent and the Isle of Wight centre in Bembridge have Trinity exam status. Additionally, Grosvenor Hall is accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English in the UK, and is also an English UK member.


Our accommodation ranges from twin rooms to larger multi-bedded rooms and luxury camping adventure lodges. Many of the centres offer a choice of en-suite or standard (shared bathroom) accommodation.

We aim to split children into age-specific groups for accommodation, classes and activities. If siblings, of the same gender, would like to share accommodation or there are specific requests for a child to share a room with a different age group, then this can be discussed on a case-by-case basis.

All of our accompanying leader rooms are en-suite, with the majority being single.

Please note all rooms are 'same gender' and it is not possible for brothers and sisters to share accommodation. We are also unable to offer single rooms to any children.

Whilst we work closely with our groups to ensure they receive the accommodation requested, we cannot always guarantee their first preference.

There’s no doubt that school residential memories can last a lifetime, and creating unforgettable experiences is what we’re here to do.

For nearly 40 years we have ensured that a Kingswood residential encourages the development of life skills and helps everyone to reach their full potential in a way that’s inclusive and puts personal development at the core of what we do. Through taking young people out of the classroom, we believe that school residentials have the power to make the primary and secondary education experience more real, more tangible and even more memorable.


Over 35 years of transformative trips, encouraging both adults and young people to build confidence and resilience

Frequently asked
Questions for Groups

How do I add an extra to my trip?

To add an extra simply get in contact with one of our Experience Experts who can talk about what's available at your centre and how to get more from your trip.

Can we change our programme?

If you've chosen our Adventure programme, then it's a pre-built programme including a broad range of activities supporting our core learning outcomes of confidence, resilience and life skills. Adventure programmes can't be customised.

If you've booked Adventure Plus, your programme will be designed around the learning outcomes and objectives you gave us at the time of booking. If you want to make changes, our programmer would be happy to discuss your needs. We welcome activity requests and although first choices may not always be available we will offer suitable alternatives.

Can I add more guests to my booking?

Changes can be made to the number of guests up until room allocations and activity groups are set eight weeks prior to the trip. Changes after this point will depend on accommodation and activity availability on centre and it may not be possible to accommodate additional guests.

Can we have smaller or larger groups?

The maximum number of participants is 15 per activity group. Our risk assessments are written to this number. In special circumstances, such as groups with complex SEN needs, we may be able to operate smaller groups, these will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
