Primary School Residential Activity Trips
"Learning Away has shown that a residential learning experience provides opportunities and benefits/ impacts that cannot be achieved in any other educational context or setting."

A Mount Cook residential isn't just about having fun (although, that's very important!). We are dedicated to engaging young minds with the great outdoors, expanding each pupil's appetite for learning and encouraging curiosity. Our residential trips help to enhance relationships between pupils and their teachers, whilst increasing motivation, self-confidence and engagement.
We know that the best outcomes in outdoor learning are achieved when the activities we offer relate to your desired outcomes and classroom teaching, whilst encouraging positive personal and social development. Our wide range of exciting outdoor activities, from high ropes and archery, to bush craft and water sports, are designed to develop key skills such as teamwork, communication and resilience, boost attainment and promote intellectual curiosity.
We also know that no child is the same. All of the activities we offer are differentiated to cater for all abilities and skills, allowing each pupil the opportunity to progress and grow.
