Inspiring a lifetime of adventure
We love to embrace the opportunity provided by the shorter days and bracing weather to enjoy activities that simply don’t work in the longer, hotter days of the Summer term. Our Autumn/Winter residential school trips are available from September through to the end of April, making an Outdoor Adventure possible at any time of year. This is just a flavour of what your pupils can expect on their Autumn/Winter residential:
Situated in natural woodlands, at easily accessible outdoor centres close to the M1 and M25.
Bushcraft and Outdoor activities that are designed to inspire a love of adventure.
The Brilliant Residentials campaign highlights the benefits of taking a school trip outside of summer.
Affordable trips include accommodation, meals and outdoor activities delivered by Wildchild instructors
The Learning Away Foundation recently launched a campaign to raise awareness of the many benefits to schools and pupils of choosing a Winter residential. These are just a few of the reasons why schools shouldn’t discount the quieter Autumn / Winter months when planning their pupils’ next residential:
"Thank you so much for a phenomenal trip – we couldn’t have asked for anything more. All children and staff have not stopped sharing stories about our experience. We’re definitely coming back next year!"
"We had a brilliant three days – a real highlight of the year for children and adults! One teacher summed it up as “the highlight of my career”. The children loved it and are already excited about the next trip"
"Just wanted to thank all the Wildchild team. We had such a great time! Everyone loved it. You have a great team. Everyone is so passionate and our kids felt at home, safe and looked after. They told me on the bus they did not even miss their parents. When you are having fun, time flies!"
"I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you for all the hard work you put in for us this weekend! We had such a good time and the children have been buzzing about it today, despite being very very tired!"
"A fantastic fun packed day with a lovely group of very enthusiastic instructors. Thank you to your team for making our outdoor adventure day such a positive experience."
"When we chose Wildchild to deliver our Year 7 transition residential the idea was for our new pupils to get to know each other, learn to work together and the importance of our natural environment. The trip did all of that and so much more – since returning to school we’ve noticed a real bond among pupils and teachers alike, and a big improvement in communication and teamwork. It was a fantastic experience and we look forward to doing it all again next year!"
