Go Tribal Transition
Go Tribal Transition
Immerse Your Class in Prehistory and Sleep in a Roundhouse!
3 Day 2 Night Residential School Trip
Transition from primary to secondary is an important time for new friendships in a more challenging environment, made easier if pupils feel confident and have the skills to cope with new situations.
We have five brand new 6m diameter roundhouses that are packed with modern comforts including: radiator heating, WiFi, electricity, lighting, painted insulated floor and walls, each one has a set of soft gym mats to cover the floor so the children have a comfortable night’s sleep in their sleeping bags. We provide guest beds for teachers, so all you need to bring is a sleeping bag and pillow!
We have developed a 3 day 2 night ‘Go Tribal’ team building trip under the Learning Away ‘Brilliant Residential’ pledge designed to inspire and develop confidence at the start of the year.
Students develop a range of woodland knowledge and work together on challenges, getting to know other students and building their own resilience, as they solve problems and learn new primitive skills such as:
- Outdoor Cooking
- Tracking and Camouflage
- Woodland Orienteering
- Wilderness First Aid
- Shelter building
- Water purification
- Primitive Pottery
- Target and Field Archery
- Mini Raft Building
- Tree ID
Sleeping in the Roundhouses
- Each roundhouse sleeps 12 pupils on comfortable matting on the floor, don’t forget your sleeping bag
- BBQ Dinner and Evening Activities of Marshmallows and bat walk when it’s dark!
- Continental Breakfast including yoghurt, croissant, juices, cereals
The unique opportunity of sleeping in a roundhouse in the UK’s largest reconstructed Iron Age settlement, gives students a common experience to build on during their academic journey.
A sample programme
“An element of the residential that benefited pedagogical practice the most was the leader that inspired and motivated, and was empathetic and understanding. There was a fabulous variety and the delivery and pace of activities worked well” – Sarah and Denys, Soaring High, October 2018

School trips with an overnight stay can be life changing experiences for young people.
We are campaigning for Brilliant Residentials to enable more young people to experience more high-quality residentials, which can lead to improved resilience, relationships, achievement and brighter, brilliant futures for young people.
We not only believe in the importance of the individual, but also working as a team. All the teams worked well together and everyone went back to school very tired but happy and wanting to return for some more adventures.- Teacher
