Residential Programmes

Take the classroom outdoors with the Adur Centre and see what a difference we can make!

We use the outdoors to challenge, engage and inspire students; key skills, which will help, raise aspirations, motivate and achieve more.


The Adur Centre is set within the South downs National Park -an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and next to the River Adur. The centre is a wonderful space for learning and self-discovery in the natural environment.


Each day brings a new adventure and the chance to try something new with the encouragement of their friends.  Bringing out the best in young people is what we excel at and you can be sure you will get the very best support for an amazing school trip.


There are no hidden extras with us – all activities, safety equipment, accommodation and food is included. Each team will have a designated Adur Group Leader on hand 24/7 to support your group alongside running lively entertainment sessions in the evenings so you can relax after a busy day.


A residential experience at the Adur Centre is one they will never forget.


Activities can be adapted for some disabled groups, please contact us for further information. For FAQs, please click here.
