Five years of research

As a result of working over five years with partner schools, Learning Away, developed by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation has begun to understand what high-quality residential learning means, and have coined the phrase 'brilliant residentials' to describe these experiences.

Since 2009 Learning Away has been working closely with sixty primary, secondary and special schools to demonstrate the positive impact that high-quality residential learning can have on learner engagement and achievement, on peer and teacher student relationships, and on the powerful professional development opportunities it can provide for staff.
