Opportunities for Schools & Colleges

Calvert Trust Exmoor works with numerous schools, colleges and other educational establishments across the UK, both specialist and mainstream, and we have developed several programmes for schools to fulfil differing needs. We are also able to tailor our breaks to meet your needs, building a course around a curriculum area or theme that works for you.

At Calvert Trust Exmoor, it’s what you CAN do that counts!

School & College Residential Activity Breaks

For many students the positive effects of learning outside the classroom in this way are both immediate and long lasting.  The Calvert experience promotes physical activity, boosts self-belief, helps with social interaction, and gives pupils and staff a shared point of reference which can help with engagement when back in the classroom.

Whatever your age or ability, a visit to Calvert Trust Exmoor will provide a life changing experience; building self-confidence, developing life skills, making friends and having fun.

The centre is open year round and we welcome schools and colleges to visit for three, four or seven night breaks, and offer your pupils and students a unique opportunity to undertake exciting and challenging outdoor adventure activities in a safe, accessible environment.

After a busy day of activities, groups can access our swimming pool, sensory room, games room and sports hall for continued team-building and socialising.

Prices vary according to the season and duration of the break. Please contact us to discuss your particular needs. Pre-visit tours are also available on request.

“In my twenty years of teaching both mainstream and special needs young people, this has easily been the best, most positive experience I have been part of.”
