The Brilliant Residentials campaign encourages schools to provide more residential experiences for children and young people of all ages and from all backgrounds. It promotes and champions school trips with an overnight stay and disseminates the compelling findings of the Learning Away programme, which has produced overwhelming evidence about the numerous positive impacts a residential experience can have on pupils, staff and the wider school community.
