We know that different schools are likely to have different priorities and our approach is designed to have the flexibility to recognise and respond to different priorities, through the key staff working with each school group.

We have identified three different focus areas, as follows, where we can impact on your learners in a positive and effective way:

  • Developing Social Awareness
  • Building confidence and other personal qualities
  • Team work and related skills

While you are at Robinwood you have the option to focus on one of the above themes. Although the main session objectives do not change, by letting us know your choice in advance, our staff can prepare for your visit and will focus their praise, reviews and discussion around these areas specifically for your group.

If there are any other areas that you would like us to focus on, please let us know.

What Schools say about trips to Robinwood

We really appreciate all the recommendations we get from schools who have visited Robinwood and the number of schools who come for the first time as a result of recommendations from friends and colleagues. We are constantly updating the comments from schools who have recently attended a Robinwood Course. The schools that attend come from areas of the Midlands, throughout the North of England and up into Scotland. But don’t just take our word for it, See what they have to say about robinwood.

"Educational value - I've subsequently planned about 4/5 weeks of literacy work based on our trip to Robinwood, largely linked with the knowledge of our course leader. On arrival, we sat down and discussed what I wanted to get out of the trip, and from that, she provided some great ideas and later on provided me with a resource which we have used back at school. Achieving Learning Objectives - We spoke about independence and I don't think the children could have been given much more opportunity to be independent ! All staff were very patient with some low ability SEN children. All Robinwood staff worked alongside our staff and communicated effectively to identify behaviour strategies. I think just the staff in general were absolutely fab. Every member of staff who looked after us all really well, thank you !"
