Go Tribal Transition

Go Tribal Transition

Immerse Your Class in Prehistory and Sleep in a Roundhouse!

3 Day 2 Night Residential School Trip

Transition from primary to secondary is an important time for new friendships in a more challenging environment, made easier if pupils feel confident and have the skills to cope with new situations.

We have five 6m diameter roundhouses that are packed with modern comforts including: radiator heating, WiFi, electricity, lighting, painted insulated floor and walls, each one has a set of soft gym mats to cover the floor so the children have a comfortable night’s sleep in their sleeping bags. We provide guest beds for teachers, so all you need to bring is a sleeping bag and pillow!

We have developed a 3 day 2 night ‘Go Tribal’  trip under the Learning Away ‘Brilliant Residential’ pledge designed to inspire and develop confidence at the start of the year.

Students develop a range of woodland knowledge on this bushcraft residential and work together on challenges, getting to know other students and building their own resilience, as they solve problems and learn new primitive skills.

Celtic Harmony is an education charity which aims to enable children to benefit from the Prehistory Experience.

We cannot ensure exclusivity during the residential visits, there could be another school on-site overnight during your stay.

Pupils are accommodated in roundhouses and teachers in bell tents and possibly roundhouses if available.


An experience that brings Prehistory to life

Brilliant Residentials

School trips with an overnight stay can be life changing experiences for young people.

We are campaigning for Brilliant Residentials to enable more young people to experience more high-quality residentials, which can lead to improved resilience, relationships, achievement and brighter, brilliant futures for young people.

Hands-on education

We not only believe in the importance of the individual, but also working as a team. All the teams worked well together and everyone went back to school very tired but happy and wanting to return for some more adventures.
