Today marks the release of our new study ‘The state of school residentials in England: 2017’. The study, which assesses the quantity and quality of residentials currently delivered in schools, is the first of its kind in England.
Based on analysis of data from tens of thousands of schools and educational establishments over the last five years, it has found that residentials in schools are generally of high quality. However, far too many children are missing out on these powerful learning and life experiences, with only one in five children experiencing a residential every year. Worryingly, the study found that young people in the poorest areas are the least likely to participate.
