We recognise that the cost of residential trips is currently a big factor for parents, alongside the obvious importance of the quality of the course offered. We believe the quality of our courses is second to none. Our website, explains how we achieve our key aim of making a really positive difference developing children.

Slide background
      We invest a lot of money in delivering Robinwood courses but the fact that we operate our courses all year round means that we can offer very competitive prices on certain course dates. The most expensive Robinwood 3 day courses are £253 per child and take place during May and June. We have the same courses available on many different dates, for less than half the price, as you can see from the prices below.

    • Lower price courses
      Most of our lower price courses are either over the winter months or are at weekends. We have been working really hard and listening to feedback from schools, to ensure that we provide an outstanding course for you whenever you attend.
    • Robinwood weekends
      You can save £60 or more per child by booking a Friday to Sunday course from March to November, instead of coming in school time on the Wednesday to Friday course just two  days earlier. We do recognise and appreciate the commitment of teachers  who give up a big part of their weekend, to take children on a Robinwood residential and we do all we possibly can to make the weekend experience as enjoyable and stress free as we possibly can for visiting teachers, including  providing some additional Robinwood staff for weekend courses. More details of our weekend provision are given in the Robinwood brochure.
    • The Robinwood Old School Centre – Two day courses for years 3 and 4
      Feedback tells us that one night away from home for this age group is often enough. This new course is designed to provide a good introduction to the residential experience for younger children with 6  exciting activities – Archery, Caving, Climbing, Crate Challenge, Night Line and Piranha Pool with the same group leader throughout. Please contact us on 01706 814554 for more information.
    • Robinwood courses over the winter months with outstanding indoor provision
      We continue to invest and improve our indoor activity area provision and now  have the option for over half the activity programme to take place indoors at all  centres. We have indoor climbing walls, caving areas, crate challenge rooms,  trapeze halls, themed problem solving areas including; piranha pool and the  dungeon of doom, team challenge halls and indoor archery ranges. Fantastic  activities to challenge and develop children, whilst ensuring they stay warm.  The children also have plenty of outdoor challenges interspersed with their  indoor sessions. For their outdoor sessions each group leader will ensure the  children in their group are appropriately kitted out for the weather conditions,  so they can gain the most possible from the activities they do. Courses are  adapted, as needed, according to the weather conditions.

"Another fantastic visit. We always have a super time. If I was younger I would seriously have considered applying for a job ! Thanks to everyone - all the staff work hard and I love that you share out roles so everyone sees how the centre works from all roles and responsibilities."
