Residentials are an important part of life at New Bridge and offer our young people valuable opportunities to experience new activities and surroundings.

We are careful to stagger our residentials across the time a young person spends with us at New Bridge to give them the maximum ongoing benefit.

  • In Year 8 all pupils are offered a place on our holiday to Euro Disney.
  • Year 11 students can enjoy our Center Parcs residential.
  • In Year 13 students are very adventurous and go to the Calvert Trust in the Lake District.

These residential holidays are open to all the young people in the relevant year groups, and always prove very popular and extremely enjoyable.

Other residential opportunities are also available. Last year Activ8 completed Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award expeditions and spent the weekend in Cardiff to attend the Rugby World Cup Opening Ceremony. Lumenus joined them in Cardiff and contributed to the Rugby World Cup Opening Ceremony, in addition to a week’s residential visit to Finland where they participated in an Arts and Music Festival in conjunction with Oldham Theatre Workshop. Students from Bridging the Gap attended various seminars and lectures promoting employment, visiting Westminster, London University and Bristol University.
