What will students see and do?
A superb cliff-top location, overlooking Whitecliff Bay and with excellent direct beach access, this Kingswood centre on the Isle of Wight is approximately a one-hour-45-minute journey from Portsmouth.
Set in 100 acres of beautiful fields and woodland and also part of the Jurassic Coast, this area is of special scientific interest, with a fascinating geological past.
As well as the variety of sea-based activities available, including kayaking and bodyboarding, there is a great high-ropes park with a 3G swing for a big adrenaline rush!
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.
