This LOtC-accredited school activity programme has been designed to help children develop their communication and problem-solving skills, grow in confidence and create lasting memories with their classmates. 

Our Learning Adventures offer a packed itinerary of fun, adventure and learning activities for school groups of children aged between eight and thirteen years old.   

All group activities and evening entertainment is led by the trained Learning Adventure team, which means you can relax and enjoy yourself too. As the teacher, you can get as involved as you like. Gear up and try out the high ropes course or sit back and relax instead - whatever you prefer!

The resort is used for family breaks during the school holidays, which means your group will enjoy a high standard of modern en-suite accommodation and resort-quality dining, not normally associated with school breaks.


  • Indoor waterpark with high-speed flumes, bowls, slides and lazy river
  • Thrilling fairground rides and traditional seaside attractions
  • Aerial adventures such as high ropes, climbing and zip wire
  • Circus skills, fencing, silent cinema, bowling, rocket building

This school residential programme is based at the Butlin’s resort in Minehead which means that your group has resort-standard accommodation and facilities. Nestled in the beautiful hills of Exmoor, the Minehead resort has plenty of open, green space for your children to roam. Iconic chalets and a sandy beach. Dunster Castle is nearby, with the West Somerset Railway open for a nostalgic trip on the steam train.

Your group will be safe and sound in a self-contained accommodation block, with dedicated 24/7 security,  where children stay in modern en-suite rooms and teachers are accommodated in comfortable en-suite singles.

The school programme is delivered by the Butlin’s specialist Learning Adventure team and organised through our sister company, COGO Travel, the exclusive provider of school residential trips to Butlin’s.
