An adventure to remember, a taste of independence, a rush of adrenaline, a breath of fresh air, – more...a sense of achievement and making memories that last a lifetime. That’s what we’re here for.
We are raising the bar to provide the very best outdoor learning experiences. A Kingswood adventure utilises experiential education and non-academic ways of learning to provide a taste of independence, the chance to make lifelong memories and gain a sense of achievement. The experience equips pupils with skills for their future and broadens their horizons to the opportunities available to them.
Who we are
We are one of the most experienced providers of outdoor education in the UK. We were founded over 30 years ago and run over 1.2 million activity sessions each year. We now welcome over 165,000 young people from more than 35 countries around the world annually.
What we do
By taking pupils out of a formal classroom environment and into fun and exhilarating experiences focused on challenge and adventure, we encourage whole classes to bond and be captivated, the shyest to shine as leaders and the unmotivated to become the most enthusiastic about developing a new skill.
Using the outdoors and a selection of adventurous, challenging and high-adrenaline activities, we support young people throughout their learning journey.
Where we do it
With nine inspiring centres across the UK, plus a Château in France, we provide unbeatable learning experiences outside the classroom. Some of our locations have a friendly campus feel, with spacious buildings sprawling a large area, while others are smaller with all facilities close by, ideal for younger groups. From Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to nearby Sites of Special Scientific Interest, an array of learning environments are available at Kingswood. – less
