Welcome

We have wonderful opportunities for children to achieve fantastic things. Our 3 day, 2 night residential course for the 7 – 11 year old age groups typically packs in 15 activities providing the right balance by offering activities that will challenge, develop teamwork and stimulate the imagination. We have had many requests for a shorter course suitable for younger groups and as a result have introduced a new two day residential at The Old School in 2013 exclusively for three and four groups. This new one night course offers six-taster sessions suitable for complete; these activities are designed to provide a safe introduction to adventure and teamwork activities.

We are frequently told that one of the best things for teachers at Robinwood is seeing the children learning and working together in a different environment. This will often result in a few surprises, with some children who are quieter in the classroom succeeding well beyond what had been expected.

Everything we do at Robinwood is designed to make a really positive difference in the development of each child that attends. It’s why we all go to work at Robinwood and why we are passionate about it.

Robinwood Quote of the Week!

"Another year of brilliant experiences for our Year 6 class.  All of them learned about themselves and their classmates and have a better appreciation of each other's strengths.  We all had a fantastic time together and have returned to school as a closer unit, ready for the rest of the year.  Year 6 are now better-prepared for their transition to secondary school too. So many success stories - children overcoming fears, organising themselves, realising that they can push themselves to be more independent.  Also, the value gained in realising each other's strengths. Always amazed by the way that extra staff seem to materialise out of thin air when extra hands are needed for harnesses, etc. Activities: Crate Challenge - Great challenge to co-operation and strategic thinking. Piranha Pool - The usual panic as the time ticks away - fantastic! Team Challenge - A favourite for some of the children because they liked 'seeing the teachers mess around'.  Teachers were definitely cheated though! Zip Wire - Love the new set up - very impressive."
