Brilliant residentials – the impact on one student

Key features

  • Learner re-engagement
  • Student leadership
  • Raising aspiration

In this film case study Tony McDaid, the former Headteacher of Calderglen High School in East Kilbride, talks about one student on the cusp of disengagement, who was re-engaged by a sports residential and then went on to take a leadership role in the school. He finally left to study Sports Coaching at university; just one example of the many transformative stories staff can tell of the impact of residential experiences.
