This paper discusses the results of a survey of 210 English, Welsh and Scottish schools carried out in Spring 2009 by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation (PHF). It is further informed by the PHF Learning Away Evaluation Report (Kendall and Rodgers 2015). This reports on the findings of a five-year study of the benefits of residential experiences for young people in school undertaken with 63 schools. (Learning Away; 2015). These schools also took part in the larger survey. The purpose of the survey was to identify ‘next’ practice in residential education as perceived by school staff. These practices were identified for their intentions to respond to a number of criteria derived from an analysis of recent policy initiatives from the government department responsible for education. This paper focuses on those practices identified by the survey as outdoor learning residential experiences. The schools were self-selecting and either already offered outdoor learning as an approach or aspired to do so.
