Conway Centres: Anglesey is a large, short term, residential arts and outdoor education facility set in idyllic surroundings on the Island of Anglesey, North Wales.
Originally the centre was designed as a merchant marine training school for boys. It was opened in 1964 by His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in order to replace HMS Conway a three masted, two deck sailing ship. As such the centre is unusual in having a wealth of indoor teaching/work facilities together with a wealth of on site locations situated in an unrivalled environment.
Please click here for an OFSTED example which shows how Neston High School secures high attainment and levels of progress through a well-integrated curriculum with a broad programme of Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC). This includes many residential visits (Conway Centres: Anglesey), day trips and activities in the local environment. A ‘can do’ culture, more than any of the formal systems, adds the most value to enabling students to achieve well and thrive.
'Please do share with your team at Conway Centres: Anglesey that St. George's children had a memorable experience that was based on a true commitment to providing a quality programme that was safe and highly engaging. It was always a risk to change venue and approach but bringing our year six group in one go was certainly worthwhile! Our job is even more rewarding when we encounter like minded professionals.'
