									UK'S LEADING EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITY SCHOOL TRIP OPERATOR WELCOMES
GOVERNMENT'S ANNOUNCEMENT

Today's announcement by the Government that it is preparing an outdoor learning manifesto,
recognising the benefits of school trips to children and will support education staff in the face
of compensation claims, has been welcomed by the UK's leading operator of educational
activity centres in the UK, The Kingswood Group.

Oliver Wiley, Managing Director of The Kingswood Group, which handles 130,000 school
children each year at its six UK centres, commented: "Kingswood hosts thousands of school
groups every year, led by dedicated teachers, who passionately believe in the educational
benefits of residential school trips. We are delighted that Education Secretary Ruth Kelly has
announced an outdoor learning manifesto and hope that children will no longer be denied the
undoubted benefits of participating in school trips because the overall risk has been
completely taken out of context."

Staff at Kingswood's six educational activity centres are highly trained and meet all audits in
health and safety. www.kingswood.co.uk.
