At Bishopston Primary we believe it's such a good thing to take children on a residentials. Children from Y4, Y5 and Y6 all have an opportunity to go on one...

Y4 Residential

We are taking pupils in Y4 to Llanion Cove in West Wales for two nights. Children will be able to take part in activities including: climbing, kayaking, bush craft and more.  There is boys and girls side to the building with bunk beds dorms, showers and loos. The dining room is lovely and looks out across the river. There is also some lovely spaces for children to chill, including a games room, garden area and a sports court.

Y5 Residential

We take our Year 5 children to Llain in West Wales - 

Children take part in a whole range of adventure activities available on site including: high ropes and zip wire, kayaking and paddle boarding.  We also manage a dolphin spotting boat trip from New Quay!

They stay in cabins with bunk beds. It's a great adventure for the children.

Y6 Residential

For many years we have taken our Y6 pupils to Llangrannog. The Urdd Centre there is excellent at supporting bilingualism. Children take part in many different activities from skiing, to go carting, quad biking, horse riding, archery and more. We also take the children on a good hike on at least one of the evenings. 

The accomadation is in dormitories with rooms taking between 6-8 children. All the rooms are en-suite. The food here is amazing, a great choice everyday!

Why Residentials are so Important

The benefits of taking younger children away on a residential are significant. The overwhelming change in children seen by staff is a boost in their confidence and resilience, particularly for those less confident prior to the residential. This is likely to be a result of the children:


  • Being able to try new things in a safe environment
  • Staying overnight with friends and away from parents
  • Having to be generally more responsible for themselves and each other


Residentials do wonders at supporting children to be more willing to have a go at new activities, transfer skills they've learned on residentials, and persevere with harder challenges.


In terms of children’s relationships, staff notice friendships deepen, friendship groups widen and antagonism reduce between children who didn’t previously get on.
