What will students see and do?

Set amongst the beautiful hillsides of Abbotsham, this activity centre in North Devon is approximately two hours 10 minutes away from Bristol.

It’s easy to see why this part of the country is known as England’s Adventure Coast, and a visit will offer an array of watersports, some breathtaking views, and a picturesque coastal walk to Westward Ho! if you have time to squeeze it in.  

The centre boasts the highest high-ropes course in the south-west along with the ultimate water assault course. Have a go at mountain boarding or try your hand at surfing, SUP or kayaking.  

Night trails and movies are part of the offering for evening entertainment. 

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.
