Let your pupils reap the benefits of tackling challenging times at school with a re-invigorated growth mind-set and improved self-image. A residential with us in the late autumn or early spring term has all the benefits of an Outdoor Residential at any time of year but comes with the added bonus of being targeted to boost confidence and attainment in the run up to key terms in the academic year.
We know from our own research that all pupils improve their sense of well-being as a consequence of taking part in one of our courses and those benefits are taken with them back into the classroom.
The Education Endowment Foundation has collated research that agrees with our findings and also concludes that: “On average, pupils who participate in adventure learning interventions make approximately four additional months’ progress over the course of a year. There is also evidence of an impact on non-cognitive outcomes such as self-confidence.”
So, ask yourself, when in the academic year would this boost in attainment be most desirable for your pupils?
