As the sun set we set up a fire and had music going around laughing and joking like we had all been friends forever....
That feeling really encapsulated the whole journey, and who we are at Robinwood. We're positive. We're enthusiastic. We want to go back, and try and try again, because we love to have fun and push ourselves, develop ourselves, do our best. ...

To make a really positive difference developing children.
We are enthusiastic and positive.
Through supporting each other we achieve more as a team.
We see things through the eyes of our customers and provide excellence.
