A new study examining ‘the state of school residentials in England: 2017’ has been released this week by Learning Away.  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 found that 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. More worryingly still, the study found a picture of patchy and inequitable access with young people in in the poorest areas the least likely to participate. Furthermore, only around half of teachers said they believed the residentials they delivered were affordable to all pupils.
