Campaigning group ‘Learning Away’ have launched a new campaign to encourage schools to provide more educational trips with an overnight stay in the autumn term, when the benefits are greater and the costs are often lower.


Learning Away’s action research spanning five years with 60 schools described residentials as “providing opportunities and benefits/impacts that cannot be achieved in any other educational context or setting.” This research found that residentials can improve students’ resilience, achievement, relationships and engagement with learning, often playing a “transformational role” in re-engaging some of the most disadvantaged pupils with their studies.
