What will students see and do?
A beautiful location, overlooking the picturesque Wrekin and Clee Hills and close to Birmingham, this Kingswood centre was purpose-built for school residential trips and all facilities are close at hand, making it a perfect destination for primary school groups, in particular.
A fantastic blend of excitement and creative learning opportunities await you at this centre – among the activities on offer, you can try abseiling and archery, a challenging low-ropes course with zipwire, and bushcraft in the grounds.
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.

The maximum number of students per activity is 15.
