Use winter to prepare for the challenges of summer

By taking your pupils on a residential course with The Outward Bound Trust during December, January or February you will reap the rewards of teaching pupils who have improved self-esteem, are more confident and more resilient throughout the rest of the school year.

We make the most of winter conditions to challenge our participants even further, resulting in greater benefits seen back in the classroom. So even if you have already booked your next residential course, get in touch and find out how we can help you the following year.
