Primary Schools

We work with primary schools from across the UK, providing tailored outdoor learning programmes to meet your schools and pupils needs.

Our amazing locations are perfectly situated for all kinds of fun and inspiring adventures, sure to fuel the imagination of any young person. We have a dedicated instructor for each group who will support and challenge course participants so that they can gain the most from the residential experience.

We provide 24-hour pastoral support at all of our centres which helps to ensure the wellbeing of young people whilst in our care. In addition, health and safety is absolutely paramount. More information on our policies and procedures can be found here.

"Greater well-being can equip pupils to achieve academically. ...ensure that sufficient time is allowed for activities which develop life-long skills for well-being."
