First Night Away – All inclusive 1 night residentials for Y2s-Y4s
Here at Thornbridge Outdoors our mission is to widen the horizons of young people through real adventures in the Peak District.
Whilst a single day visit or residential can be fantastic, we agree with the research backed Learning Away Campaign that:
“A progressive programme with a sequence of coordinated, pre-residential and residential experiences from ages 4 to 18 brings cumulative learning benefits for young people and staff, grows confidence, widens horizons and raises aspirations.”
In response to the above and interest from schools we launched our ‘First Night Away’ visits and they have been very well received with 100% of schools rebooking to date!
We are proud to be enabling younger pupils than we have typically worked with to experience an outdoor learning residential, with a focus on the fantastic heritage and landscapes of Thornbridge and the Monsal Trail, and as part of building up to a more challenging and longer residential later in their education.
