Conway Centres Anglesey

School Trips @ Edsential

The Conway Centres are led by staff who are highly qualified long term educators who can differentiate between pupils, inspire, motivate and help raise aspirations.

The extensive grounds and location make it an ideal base to participate in a wide range of on and off site outdoor and adventurous activities. It's within a short travelling distance of the mountains and is adjacent to the sea, making water activities very accessible and suitably challenging.

Anglesey has an excellent range of facilities for the Creative and Performing Arts and specialises in supporting the curriculum in schools, both at primary and secondary levels.

The unique accommodation which holds 400+ can cater for a whole secondary year group in the main dormitory block, along side smaller groups in self contained buildings.

Edsential is a Community Interest Company, all profits are reinvested in to services for children.
