Residentials that inspire, educate and are just brilliant!

Going on a residential will give your students a passion for learning which can live on throughout the year. 72% of primary pupils said that their behaviour at school is better after a residential and 71% of secondary pupils felt more strongly motivated to learn. *

At Allnatt we have always recognised the benefits of simply being away from home and school, in a place of natural beauty, to build relationships between children, and between children and their teachers. We know the sooner a teacher gets to know their pupils, the sooner they can ‘set them up for success’. Residential trips allow relationships between staff and students to become more trusting and respectful back in the classroom. Students get to know teachers as individuals; staff gain a better understanding of their students and how to respond to them. 79% of primary pupils said they know their teacher better as a result of their residential *

Going on a residential allows time for learning and development to be embedded back in school. The Outdoor Activities and Outdoor Learning programmes available at Allnatt help you and your students build deeper relationships which are sustained back in school. Join us on your school journey in 2018.

An organisation with vision

Our vision for the future is to provide brilliant residentials, both indoor and outdoor,  all the year round and further increase our permanent team of people with exceptional knowledge and experience who will make a positive contribution to society. We will continue to operate with a vision; always planning ahead and developing our approach of engaging with young people in a meaningful and positive way. Our NCS programmes, School Camps and Autism Friendly Holidays are the next stage of this development.


At our Swanage Centre we have 5 seaside guest houses providing for a variety of group sizes. They each offer a perfect base for groups wanting to explore and learn more about the world famous Jurassic Coast. Just a stone’s throw from the beach, or a short trek out into the open Dorset countryside, Allnatt Outdoors Swanage can’t be beaten for its location. Take a look here.

Isle of Wight

On the Isle of Wight we have a Victorian mansion, original Coach House and a Summer campsite. Set within 5 acres of woodland, with an outdoor heated swimming pool and a host of activities to stretch and challenge or simply enjoy. Nearby Monks Bay is ideal for rock pooling and beachcombing, there is a beautiful flat walk into the seaside resort of Ventnor and a more challenging coastal walk via Nansen Hill to Shanklin.

A very positive experience for both students and staff. All Allnatt’s staff were professional, welcoming, helpful and us feel at ease. The out of classroom experience was a very good positive learning experience for all.

A fun-filled week for the children where they were encouraged to develop independence and enjoy activities which they normally wouldn’t be able to do.

An Allnatt School Camp is an amazing few days which we will all remember forever!

Padbury School

The group leaders were truly excellent, the programme is interesting and we will definitely be back!

Comments from the children – It was an exciting trip. It encouraged us to mix with others. Everyday there were adventurous elements. We learnt other people’s qualities. Our leaders were absolutely amazing and funny! The food was gastronomic!

St. Dominic Catholic Primary

A lovely visit. Despite the rain, all the children loved their stay. The staff were fantastic and made our visit even more enjoyable. Thank you! See you next year!

Holy Rood / Divine Saviour

All of the children really enjoyed their stay & learned lots from the experience. My class loved making sculptures in teams on the beach, they enjoyed building a mini stone wall at Durlston, they loved the mini safari, and looking for wool ‘worms’ in a mini lesson about camouflage…and they loved the pool and their instructors!

Cranborne First School

Abi and the leaders were amazing. They were very knowledgeable, patient and had all the girls focused and motivated. All the other staff were very friendly too and made us all feel very welcome.

An excellent base, with excellent staffing from which to do A Level Geography Fieldwork.

Havering College of Further & Higher Education

Allnatt is well resourced with caring, competent staffing, creating a very enjoyable & informative visit.

Locks Heath Junior School

Very enjoyable, superb food, great experiences, overall extremely fantastic experience for all. Samantha was absolutely brilliant – all leaders & staff friendly & helpful, also accommodating with children needing additional support.

Binstead Primary School

Your fantastic passion for field work has always resulted in positive outcomes and life-long experiences for many of the students we have brought down to Swanage over the years. Geography would never be geography without the experiential learning that your centre provides.

Geography Teacher, Biddenham School

The children have absolutely loved their first residential. They have learnt a lot & not just from the curriculum. It was good to be able to send our learning objectives in advance so the programme was tailored to our needs. We have several children with learning & behaviour needs & all staff have been great. It’s great as a teacher to be able to just turn up & everything is taken care of. Thank you for a fantastic trip!
