A residential school trip to Cornwall offers your students the exciting opportunity to explore a county full of fascinating attractions, unique culture and spectacular scenery!

Cornwall is the perfect choice if you’re looking for a residential school trip to boost students’ wellbeing. Staying on this spectacular coast, where they’ll be able to breathe in the sea air, take a moment and reconnect with nature. And that’s the case whether you choose to soak up the sun in the summer or take advantage of Cornwall’s warmer (and quieter!) winters.

There is an almost endless list of activities to enjoy once you’re in Cornwall. Lots of our groups choose to see some of the county’s highlights, with visits to the iconic St. Michael’s Mount and Lizard Point. If your students are interested in art, you could choose to visit the Tate St. Ives or even visit the workshops of local artists. And, of course, you can’t come all the way to Cornwall and not spend some time at the Eden Project, where you can choose to add workshops on sustainability and eco-tourism!
