Robinwood Residential 2014



As you know, our Year 5 children went on a three day residential to the Robinwood Activity Centre in Alston.  They had a wonderful time, enjoying many exciting adventurous pursuits.  Their behaviour was outstanding; they represented our School Community brilliantly.  Thanks especially to Miss Graham, Mr Khan and Miss Birchenough for taking care of our children and ensuring that they all had a fantastic time!


As a school, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to ALL of the staff at Alston, who ensured we had another fantastic school residential. Robinwood is so well organised and the staff got to know the personalities of individuals in their groups really well. This then helped the children to develop their confidence more into their 'stretch zone' and achieve things that they never thought possible. The staff's enthusiasm, friendly, approachable personalities and commitment are incredible! They managed to keep the children in high spirits throughout the three days! The children left Robinwood with greater self-esteem, were better listeners and had a sense of huge accomplishment and the ability to work as a team.   We can't wait to go back next year!
