Why are Kingswood great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

trip icon

Every Kingswood centre offers a range of residential programmes and day trips. Your programme will be tailored to suit your needs; begin by choosing a programme such as Transition and Team Building or Wild Adventurer, which will act as a theme for your visit, then choose your desired learning outcomes and activity categories and Kingswood will design a programme for you.

Kingswood is one of the leading providers of the residential phase of the NCS (National Citizen Service) Programme, welcoming around 15,000 young people every year to complete the residential element of the programme. The NCS programme helps 15-17 year olds build skills for work and life through a series of exhilarating challenges.

Is there first aid on site?

trip icon

All Kingswood staff go through health and safety training and there are first aiders on site at all times.

Do you offer access for visitors with disabilities?

trip icon

Kingswood endeavour to make centres accessible to as many young people as possible. Experience has taught us that the best way to understand the extent, and limitations, of the provision centres offer, is for party leaders to visit the centre itself and discuss the requirements with the management team on site.

Do you cater for visitors with Special Educational Needs (SEN)?

trip icon

Kingswood’s provisions for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities including learning difficulties, hearing, visual or mobility impairment and behavioural issues can be found on the SEND page of their website along with risk assessments for SEND. However, Kingswood encourage party leaders to contact the management team to arrange SEND provisions.
