TYF Residentials

We work with teachers, pupils, parents and educators and create experiences for the classroom and residentials that give young people confidence, creativity and the skills to shape a good life and a better world to live in. 

Our immersive, experiential programmes link adventure and impact problem solving that help pupils find meaning and inspiration whilst building the ‘backpack skills’ for a lifetime of adventurous play. 

What’s our ‘why’? A better world is needed, and possible. We believe that young people deserve it, and that we can give them some of the know-how build it That’s what drives us. 

We believe in the power of an Adventure Mindset that balances risk, choices and committed action, and we build it through carefully designed experiential learning and adventure programmes that we follow up back in classroom and community. 

Beyond the cliffs and coast, we are working with government, business and many leading teachers and educators, playing our part in designing curriculum, strategy and solutions to transform education and make it for future generations.

For over 30 years, teachers have been bringing pupils to TYF for programmes they know will change lives. Pupils learn to work and play together, speak up, solve problems, and to build their ‘Super North Star’ with the Compass for Life. We love giving life-changing adventures groups that can range from small teams through to whole-year groups of up to 180 students. 

Activity locations are close to your accommodation and full days out help make the most your time with TYF. Teachers tell us they love our professionalism, creativity and a commitment to education that goes way beyond the crag and clifftop.

Primary Schools

TYF’s primary school residential programmes give younger pupils the best possible step up into a world of adventure as they stretch their comfort zones and widen horizons on residential, day, or in-school adventure and education programmes. For many children, a trip to TYF can be their first trip away from home, and we put all of the care in place to keep them, their parents and teachers comfortable and confident. 

We have a wide range of ready-to-go courses that can be quickly tailored to fit your school’s needs as well as to stimulate, educate and inspire primary school pupils, and design fully customised programmes for the most ambitious, progressive schools we work with. 

Our adventure and experiential learning programmes connect to the KS1 and KS2 syllabus through multi-subject outcomes. TYF’s guides ensure that your students learn how to transfer the skills that they have learned with us back to the classroom. 

TYF’s in-school workshops range from 1 hour to full day exercises and help primary pupils choose a path of active, ambitious learning that gives them core skills on problem solving, well-being and making a difference. More information on our workshopshere

Pupils will be laughing, playing hard and making new friends, collecting memories and learning that they’ll remember for life. 

Secondary Schools

The secondary school programmes have been developed with some of the best educators in the world. Participants will build skills around teamwork, observation, inquiry, systems thinking and communication that pupils will need as the progress through curriculum at KS3 and KS4 and towards the world of work.

Pupils are taken out of the confines of the classroom and immersed into adventurous and experiential learning in the natural world. They build skills and confidence in one of the most inspiring learning environments on the planet, relating their insights to the real-world challenges that will shape their future. 

We’ll give them a new set of rules to bend, teach them things about themselves and they won’t have time to care about their hair. 

Further & Higher Education

TYF have more than 20 years experience of delivering bespoke programmes of adventure activities to Further Education Colleges and Universities.Students will be immersed in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. 

Adventure activities can either form part of their education (e.g. inspiration for creative writing, geology, or outdoor sports studies), as a team building adventure, or as an end of year reward of pure fun.

Whichever programme you choose, you can be assured of low ratios and the highest quality of leadership and knowledge from TYF guidesAs you stand on the Pembrokeshire coast and look out at the expansive water you’ll realise, there’s still way more to learn.
