• Description

In 2012, Paul Hamlyn Foundation (PHF) commissioned York Consulting to evaluate the effectiveness of Learning Away. The evaluation had two overarching aims:

- to test and evidence four key Learning Away propositions focused on the belief that high quality residential learning: has a strong, positive impact on academic achievement and provides a wide range of student-level outcomes; can transform the learning experience of students; can help to transform schools; and does not need to be expensive;

- to generate new insights and understanding about how and why residential learning can and does achieve these outcomes.
