Benefits of Residentials

Residentials should be both fun and educational. Youth professionals speak powerfully of the great good that can come from a residential trip.

Benefits are seen in terms of increasing individual confidence, resilience building as well as improving the trust between peers and relationships with leaders. We offer bespoke courses to meet the particular needs of visiting groups, and work with accompanying adults over many years to ensure experiences at Woodrow reinforce learning and development back home.

Our belief in the value of what Woodrow offers is based not only on our own experience and observations, but also on the extensive work and research carried out by Learning Away.

Learning Away campaigns for Brilliant Residentials. The evidence provided by the campaign is undeniable. High quality residential experiences enhance learning, improve relationships amongst peers and the leader-pupil relationship, as well provide an incredible opportunity for all pupils to shine in a new environment.

Learning Away have a huge number of free resources available to help you plan your own Brilliant Residential, so why don’t you take a look at their website here for ideas and inspiration.
