What makes a ‘brilliant residential’ at Rippledown

Connect with nature

The Outdoor Classroom needs children visiting it. The unique experience of an outdoor residential connects them with the natural world and opens up ways of living more sustainably.

Away from home

Being away from home is a learning tool in itself. Pupils develop life skills and improving team and class dynamics as well as self-awareness and individual confidence. Explore our hostel and grounds. 

Sensory learning

Awakening all five senses can provide a profound and fun-filled experience. Pupils can make sense of their surroundings in a way that’s not possible in the conventional classroom.
