We are really excited about our two day residential which involves adventure from the very beginning. We believe experiences like this, act as an amazing step towards increasing independence, resourceful thinking, resilience and decision making, in a truly unique environment in which to learn and interact.

Students will work in small tribes of approx ten to fifteen and each tribe will be assigned a TGM leader. This allows every tribe member to contribute and feel confident to express their ideas. The ancient woodland offers children and young adults the opportunity to excel out-with of the confines of a conventional classroom, inspiring an increased positive attitude towards learning, dependence on their peers and the opportunity to learn new skills.

Taking away distractions of everyday life gives a natural sense of well being which improves mental health and gives pupils an increased sense of achievement, which can then be transported back to school. This Green Moon is a safe environment where we can offer the time and inspiration to make everyone who comes to us feel empowered and  leave with a huge smile on their (dirty) face.
