The benefits of learning outside of the classroom whatever the weather!

Today, over 1.5million children will be taking part in Outdoor Classroom Day across the country. At Avon Tyrrell we’re big believers in the impact learning outside the classroom has on the develop and wellbeing of young people.

Residentials improve students resilience, self-confidence and well-being, so why wait until the end of the academic year to see these benefits back in the school environment? We’re focusing on why attending a residential in the winter months builds student engagement and attainment, giving young people a passion for learning to build upon for the rest of the year.

Now’s the time to start planning!

Its also a great time for students to build relationships with each other, as well as with their teachers. According to ‘Learning Away’ 84% of students felt that they get on better with their classmates following a residential. Winter residentials help teachers understand their students, how they learn and therefore how to respond to them. Equally students build trust and rapport with their teachers in a new, supportive environment.

With packages starting from £125pp for 4 nights, you will get the same high-quality outdoor learning at a lower cost, increasing affordability for both schools & parents. Packages at Avon Tyrrell include accommodation, full-board catering, a full activities programme as well as optional extras to make your residential beneficial and memorable.
