Worried about residentials or camping? Advice from Learning Away schools

Key features

  • Impact of residentials on staff
  • Advice for those unsure about residentials
  • Advice about camping

During the first phase of Learning Away, many staff experienced their first school residential, and sometimes their first camping trip to boot.

We asked some of these staff, from Bulwell and Canterbury partnerships where camping residentials have become the norm, to share their advice for other staff. If you are considering going on a residential, especially one that might push you out of your personal comfort zone, or know someone else who is thinking about it, you may find this film useful.
