A Valuable Trip for our Children

Danes Hill School is widely recognised as one of the leading co-educational day preparatory schools in the country. Situated in the village of Oxshott, Surrey, Danes Hill provides boy and girls aged 3 to 13 with a broad and balanced curriculum. Danes Hill children are characteristically self-confident and outgoing and, in addition to the emphasis on academic work, they have plenty of opportunity to develop sporting, musical, dramatic and other non-academic interests.

The Challenge

Danes Hill aim to take every child in their care on a most extraordinary journey and one which can nurture the talent and provide the skills and experience to last a lifetime. Cumulus Coast residential was therefore ideally suited to support and complement that journey, delivering a programme to provide new learning and skills combined with an unforgettable experience while heightening self-esteem and confidence through fun, stimulating and challenging outdoor adventure experiences.

The Solution

Set in an exclusive, secluded camp on the edge of Poole Harbour, with 24 hour on-site pastoral care, the Cumulus Coast tailored residential programme combined traditional bushcraft workshops, evening games plus adventure activities, including Coasteering, kayaking, waterpark and mud run plus mackerel fishing and beach games. The programme provided the students with the opportunity to experience an authentic outdoor adventure on the beautiful Jurassic coastline of Dorset.

“Thanks very much for looking after us again last week, it was a huge success and all the children really enjoyed it.  I think this is such a valuable trip for our children and we are really looking forward to returning next year”

The Result

Approaching their 5th year with Cumulus, the Residential programme continues to meet the objectives of Danes Hill School to provide a valuable experience for the students while creating memories to last a lifetime.  As a matter of policy, Cumulus Outdoors continues to look at ways to improve the programme still further.
