★★★★★ Luke Cullen, Our Lady and St Edwards Primary School
"We have taken Year 6 children on residentials for the past 12 years and can honestly say we have never been to a better place. The instructors were incredibly patient and pushed the children to achieve things they never thought they could. The accomodation was perfect for staff and children and the food provided was very nice. The range of activities on offer ensured there was something for everyone. "

★★★★★ Matt Coaker, St Werburgh's & St Columba's Catholic Primary School
"I have been coming to Conway with different schools for the last 9 years. Having visited most other providers within a 50 mile radius, I can honestly say that Conway is the best residential outdoor activity experience I have ever had. The quality and variety of activities coupled with highly experienced, caring and nuturing instructors and staff means that our children grow and develop in ways that is not possible in the classroom. I cannot recommendly the centre highly enough and look forward to returning for many, many years!"

★★★★★ Catriona Stewart, Kingsmead Primary School
"We have been coming for a Y5 outdoor and adventurous residential visit since the school opened in 2004. I booked the trip before ordering tables, books or recruiting teachers - it is such an essential part of the school's calendar. The September trip marks pupil's induction into upper Key Stage 2. Teaching is outstanding, resulting in pupils' independence, listening and following instructions practically, collaboration, respect for one another and logical thinking all are enhanced and retained back in school - in and outside the classroom. "

★★★★★ Tamzin harris, Bishop Heber High School
"I have participated on both GCSE and A-Level courses for over 15 years at the Conway Centre which in itself gives a reflection of how highly I regard the experience. The program has exceptionally high standards and aims to provide students with the best possible outcomes to help enrich their portfolios of work.For both staff and students it has proved an enduring and invaluable experience and one the I look forward to attending every year. tamzin harris"

★★★★★ Bryan Graham, Tytherington School
"I've been taking GCSE and A Level Art students to the centre for ten years. The Art courses are very intensive and student outcomes add real value to individual coursework portfolios. To tell you the truth I keep taking groups because it's my best CPD training and has had a significant impacted on my own knowledge and practise. The self contained centre has everything you need for a complete and fulfilling residential experience, plus it's set in the picturesque landscape of the Menai Straits."

★★★★★ Alan Brown, Oldfield Primary School
"I have worked with the Conway Centre for 17 years taking children from two schools. The quality of the residential experience for the children is excellent. The facilities, activities and staff are consistently at a high level, ensuring that every child has a memorable and valuable experience."
