School trip to The Kingswood Trust
They guarantee your experience will be a breath of fresh air, creating lasting memories and ensuring enrichment and achievement for everyone. Their outdoor education programmes promote health and well-being as well as nurture a sense of curiosity and fascination in the natural world.
Their charity, The Kingswood Trust, is a place where history comes alive with old buildings, air-raid shelters, historical features and artefacts. Outdoor learning takes place in their woodland and natural habitats, pond areas, bird hide, climbing trees, adventure ropes, forest school base camps and gardening areas. Opportunities to meet the sheep, ducks and chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs and tortoises are a favourite with all their visitors. Their team building programme offers essential skills activities for personal growth.
Their educational adventures set in nature offer so much more than just a fun ‘school trip away’.
Their day visits, residential stays, “Forest School” and outdoor education programmes for schools are a key part of the Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum.
This opportunity to connect with nature and for residential stays, sleep overnight will provide new and exciting opportunities for a really memorable educational adventure. The Kingswood Trust and its expert team will guide, motivate and inspire everyone and provide real enrichment opportunities for the whole curriculum.
The Kingswood Trust delivers Learning Outside the Classroom activities for schools and other groups through day visits, programmes of activities and residential stays for one or more nights. Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) is the use of places other than the classroom for teaching and learning.
They hold the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge, a nationally recognised indicator of good quality outdoor education. The award combines the essential elements of provision – learning and safety – into one easily recognisable and trusted accreditation.
Supporting children from Early Years and through the Primary phase and older children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, The Kingswood Trust provides carefully planned activities that support the school’s curriculum delivery, offering challenging, exciting and memorable experiences to help children learn.
