About Inspiring Learning

We Are Inspiring Learning

Kingswood is part of Inspiring Learning, we own residential education adventure centres across the UK and France, providing educationally-rich activity breaks for schools and groups. Founded over 30 years ago, we welcome over 165,000 young people and run 1.2million activities every year. Each centre provides a safe environment for a wide range of adventurous activities and learning opportunities, both indoors and outdoors, ranging from kayaking and abseiling to problem solving and curriculum linked sessions. Tailor-made programmes focus on a selection of learning outcomes, designed to achieve objectives from team building to personal development through the use of adventure activities. Kingswood is also one of the leading providers of the residential phase of the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme.

Out of term time our specially-designed centres operate as school holiday camps (Kingswood Camps) and family adventure destinations (Kingswood Family Adventures). Also in the school holidays the company runs multi-activity day camps, (Camp Beaumont) hosted at schools across London and the Home Counties.
