Avon Tyrrell offers unique, tailored outdoor learning programmes in the beautiful New Forest National Park all year round, come rain or shine!

Residentials improve students resilience, self-confidence and well-being, so why wait until the end of the academic year to see these benefits back in the school environment? Going on a residential in the winter months builds student engagement and attainment, giving them a passion for learning to build upon for the rest of the year.

It’s also a great time for students to build relationships with each other, as well as with their teachers. According to ‘Learning Away’ 84% of students felt that they get on better with their classmates following a residential. Winter residentials help teachers understand their students, how they learn and therefore how to respond to them. Equally students build trust and rapport with their teachers in a new, supportive environment.
