School Residentials

The small and personal residential experience is so valuable for many young people. It provides:

  • The less confident with the support and personal attention to  overcome their anxieties, 
  • The more able with  the extra opportunities and details of knowledge to immerse themselves 
  • The less able to have repeated opportunities to understand in small groups
  • The numerous practical applications that support outdoor learning 
  • The unique activities that create the excitement and desire to share the experience with others in public speaking.
  • Repeated learning experiences that grows confidence, independence and great sense of achievement.

A time away from home in a safe and secure environment provides that first stepping stone to independent living. At Shallowford Farm the caring staff, the homely surroundings and the fireside setting encourages a sense of community and belonging.

The small and intimate environment at Shallowford encourages listening to others opinions, sharing different stories and understanding different viewpoints. This then nurtures a caring group and tolerant outlook.

Residential experiences create life-long memories, at Shallowford Farm these will be positive and life-changing.

And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so.

Gen 1:24
