Brilliant residentials and their impact on children, young people and schools

Since 2009, Learning Away has worked with 60 schools across the UK to develop, test and evaluate what we now describe as ‘brilliant residentials’. Residential learning is ‘brilliant’ when it is led by teachers, co-designed with students, and fully integrated into the curriculum. Our independent evaluators have found that, by working in this way, schools can achieve significant breakthroughs in learner engagement and progress, whilst achieving positive outcomes for teachers and the school as a whole. This publication shares key recommendations for teachers, school leaders, residential providers and education policymakers.
