Residential trips to Cobnor 

For many of the children who come on a residential trip to Cobnor, it is the first time that they have stayed away from home. We see it as our duty to ensure that they have a positive, fun and safe experience. We hope that they will end the week with enhanced confidence and improved self esteem.
