Learning Away final evaluation: full report

Published: 1 June 2015 

This report details the full findings from the final independent evaluation of the Learning Away initiative.

Since 2009, Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Learning Away initiative has sought to define and evidence the impact of high-quality residential learning and to encourage schools across the UK to commit to providing these experiences for all students. In June 2015, York Consulting published its final independent evaluation of Learning Away residentials, identifying their impacts as well as what it is about the overnight stay that can bring about such positive powerful outcomes for young people long after their return to school.
