What will students see and do?
A former manor house set in 50 acres of grounds in Ashford, Kent, Grosvenor Hall is situated close to transport links and areas of cultural interest.
Just a 30-minute drive from Canterbury, this attractive centre offers an array of adventure and recreational adventure opportunities, with some great educational programmes and fantastic classrooms.
For thrill seekers there is an extensive ropes park with triple zipwire, while for those keen on having fun on the water, rafting and canoeing are available for a small additional fee.
Teaching resources provided
Kingswood, in partnership with Enrich Education, provide visitors with pre- and post-trip activity packs.
Packs includes a selection of activities that support PE, English, maths, science and geography curricula, taken from the Enrich School Orienteering and Outdoor Learning Digital Hub, which is home to over 200 cross-curricular physical activity plans. Each activity links with one of the six Kingswood curriculum categories (Challenge, Play, Explore, Discover, Social, Reflect). All activities include a teacher’s plan and children’s resource sheets where required.
The packs enable schools to create opportunities to introduce outdoor adventurous activities to children, developing their initial orienteering skills and helping to foster a love for outdoor learning.
In addition to the activity packs, Kingswood offers schools a unique ‘confidence tracker’ tool, created in partnership with insight specialists Spike and with counsel from Dr Alice Jones Bartoli and Professor Justin Dillon, to enable them to evidence and evaluate the success of a trip. This is a fantastic take-home to share with parents or carers after a trip and can also form a wider project on character education or development.
Minimum and maximum group size
The maximum number of students per activity is 15.
Kingswood can usually accommodate smaller groups with complex SEN requirements on request.
