3 Days, 2 Nights, 15 Activties

Available at: BHDCOS

You will save at least £60 per child

Robinwood Friday to Sunday courses, whenever they follow a Wednesday to Friday term time course, are at least £60 per child cheaper than that Wednesday to Friday course which starts just two days earlier. In a number of situations this price reduction could be the difference between whether parents are able to afford the trip or not.

We increase Robinwood staff provision at the weekends

We recognise that you have an overall duty of care for the supervision of children in your group and are concerned that you have a level of involvement that you are happy with, fulfilling the responsibilities that you hold.

The care and supervision offered by the Robinwood team, and the level of support that we provide for party leaders and other accompanying adults, ensures that we make things as easy, stress free and enjoyable as we can for all the adults on the trip.

Staffing levels are always high at Robinwood, but recognising the fact that teachers who attend at weekends are often sandwiching the trip in-between two full working weeks, we always timetable additional Robinwood staff for weekend courses; available to assist whenever needed. Teachers often tell us how they really appreciate the opportunity to take a step back; observing the whole group, to see how individuals perform and interact, with Robinwood group leaders taking charge.

If you want to take steps back at the weekend in particular, we understand the pressures of your working week and that is OK by Robinwood.

There is more opportunity for teachers’ partners, parents, governors and other friends of the school to attend

Robinwood needs a nominated teacher, acting as party leader, attending with and taking overall charge of each school party. We recognise that you may also have school and/or LEA requirements to fulfil, but as long as there are an appropriate number of accompanying adults, then there is more opportunity for people other than teachers to attend at the weekend.

Weekend schools often bring a few more accompanying adults. Our normal limit for accommodation is two adults per activity group booked, but we are happy to cater for more people at meal times if someone wants to visit just for the day. All adults visiting Robinwood attend free of charge, but we do need written confirmation from your head teacher that all resident accompanying adults are DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) checked.

One key thing we would ask though is that you tell us in advance who will be attending in order that we can be prepared and able to offer the best possible service.

A weekend break at Robinwood is more relaxing than you may expect!

All of our centres are in beautiful settings; two of them have acres of picturesque grounds, whilst the Old School centre is on the edge of the moors, where Robinwood activities also take place. They offer you the opportunity for two great nights away. We go that extra mile with the meals provided and ensure we include a choice of meals to suit adult tastes, as well as those of the children. We have extra refreshments available throughout the day and also in the evenings after the children have gone to bed. If you have any special requests for your weekend visit, please let us know and we will do all we can to respond. On all of our courses we timetable Robinwood staff to do bedtime duty and night duty. This is probably most appreciated by weekend schools who know that although they always need to remain available on call, the Robinwood team is there to enable them to have an enjoyable and relaxing evening and a good nights sleep.

"Yet again, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Robinwood. The Robinwood staff made our visit so enjoyable and fun and it always amazes me how every time they do an activity it is as if they are doing it for the first time. It is a weekend where we come home completely shattered but having had so much fun: cheeks aching having laughed so much! Thank you to all staff who helped to make our visit an unforgettable one! Couldn't teach what the children learnt in the classroom."
