Residential Courses in your School Grounds

Working with a huge number of residential providers throughout the UK, we get a great insight into how residential school trips change year to year and how new ways of engaging children outside the traditional classroom environment are made available to teachers. Over the last few years an amazing variety of innovative products have been shared here on PlanMySchoolTrip, and we are constantly discussing the best ways to share new ideas with you. We created our Bushcraft page and our NCS page on the back of increased requests for this type of trip. While the traditional residential school trips are still the most popular type of residential, there are certainly far more options available to teachers today.

Bring the Adventure in school
Did you know that your children can enjoy an adventure-filled residential without leaving your school grounds! We decided to create this page for a product that isn't often requested, yet we feel can offer a fantastic alternative to the residential school trip. We work with a handful of specialists who have years of experience in bringing the residential experience to your school. In school activities might include the likes of Mountain Biking, Archery, Catapult Building and Bug Hunting and the activities can be tailored to your group's individual needs. Children can sleep in luxury tented accommodation and everything from risk assessments to National Governing Body qualified instructors is taken care of. Have a browse through the options below and see whether one of these on-site in school residential trips would be a good option for your school.
