Premium activities | Premium accommodation

Land & Wave school trips are perfect for teachers looking for a quality school trip experience for their children. Our ethos is to deliver REAL outdoor experiences within the natural landscape. We climb on limestone cliffs, we swim in the salty sea, we embrace the smell of wood smoke from the campfire. You won't find any artificial climbing walls here.

Low stress | High quality

Teachers we applaud you. It's miraculous that you've even found the time to research this school trip. We know how valuable your time is, so we work hard to make the organisational process as smooth as possible. We've even built bespoke school trip software to make your paperwork and planning a breeze. We're also listed on the Evolve recommended suppliers list and are accredited by LOTC and AALA.

Day 1

Arrive at midday and bring a packed lunch. After a quick tour of the Centre, we launch straight into activities.

Day 3

Today we swap the salty sea air for a secret woodland wonderland. Survival skills and bushcraft is the order of the day.

Day 4

Now it's time for the kids to see their teachers step outside of their comfort zones.

Day 5

Time for one final adventure. You'll be heading home with amazing tales, weary bodies and incredible achievements.

Great rooms and food

The Swanage Centre is the perfect comfy base for a school trip. Spacious rooms, excellent shower facilities and top-notch food are all reasons why we love it and know you will too. It's a 5-minute walk to the sandy beach in Swanage. Security is paramount with keycode entry systems for bedrooms and building lockdowns at 10pm. There is also CCTV and 24-hour staff on duty. 

Premium sports facilities

As if a full adventure programme isn't enough, you'll have full access to all the sports facilities at The Swanage Centre too. There's an indoor heated swimming pool, movie theatre, table tennis, sports dome with astro turf pitches, basketball court, tennis courts, aeroball, pool tables and more. We can block book areas for your group to use in your downtime and each school is also given a box of sports equipment to use for the week.
