Lifelong memories from seaside adventures
We believe a great residential is an important part of growing up. Nothing beats that first taste of independence and the sense of achievement you feel. For many pupils, it’s the highlight of their year, when friendships are made and sealed, new activities are tried and exciting new places are experienced.
The top five life skills your pupils will gain with us are:
- Becoming more independent and resilient through time spent away from home.
- Improving self-confidence and self-motivation.
- Broadened horizons and sense that the ‘whole world is out there’.
- An understanding of how outdoor play improves their health and wellbeing.
- Environmental awareness and understanding how their actions impact the Earth.
Our beachside location in Cullercoats offers a wide space for fun, learning and taking in the fresh seaside air.

With this diversity of activities and environments you can really maximise both enjoyment and learning outcomes for your group.
