learning away consortium

Learning Away is a £2.25 million special initiative born of The Paul Hamlyn Foundation. Learning Away encourages schools to make a significant shift in their commitment to providing high-quality residential learning experiences for their pupils. 

Residentials are school trips with an overnight stay, which are led by teachers, co-designed with students and fully integrated into the curriculum. They are a ‘multi-tool’ for achieving vital educational outcomes, have a huge impact on students of all ages and can help to deliver whole school change.

Working closely with over 60 primary, secondary and special schools in 13 partnerships across the UK, Learning Away aims to enhance young people’s learning, achievement and wellbeing by developing, piloting and evaluating the impact of residential experiences as an integral part of the curriculum.

Learning Away is one of PHF’s five current Education and Learning special initiatives.
