Schools and young people's groups
What we can do to support the curriculum
We are ideally placed to make the necessary links between all stages of the national curriculum and the outdoor aspects of the GCSE, A Level and BTEC qualifications. Our aim is to support you with your school curriculum as flexibly as possible.
Early Years and Key Stage One
We offer a range of exciting, action packed days designed to introduce the very youngest pupils to the outdoors, adventure, creativity and teamwork.
Key Stage Two
Borwick Hall - a listed Tudor Mansion is a fantastic venue to bring your Key Stage Two class to. Find out how the Tudors lived at the Hall itself.
We can cover the national curriculum requirements for outdoor and adventurous activities and offer field studies programmes.
Transition programmes – supporting the move from primary to secondary school
Pupils undertake activities that foster self-esteem and self-confidence, encourage lively interaction with group members and give opportunities to develop mutual support, empathy with others and team co-operation.
Key Stage Three
Pupils can benefit from the comprehensive and personal feedback that they will receive from our staff team and acknowledge a student's place within the curriculum.
To support pupils and schools following a course of study in GCSE PE, all the Centres have qualified, experienced staff able to deliver activity modules. We can develop techniques and skills for pupils in paddlesports, mountain biking, rock climbing, orienteering and mountaineering and, in real environments, consider the important aspects of Health and Safety, risk management and examine the environmental impacts of using the outdoors sustainably.
Discovering the natural world around us is an integral and vital part of what we do and our Centres are able to offer a range of field study activities. River studies are extremely popular with primary school pupils whilst we are also able to provide 'A' level biology field work programmes, moorland and coastal studies and even venture underground to investigate limestone scenery and processes.
The Duke of Edinburgh Scheme
We provide a range of support and expedition preparation; including tent-pitching, camp cooking, map and compass skills and route planning to help your students through both training and qualifying expeditions at each level. We can provide experienced supervisors and assessors and a fully inclusive fast track service for your students allowing them to complete both their training and qualifying expeditions in one residential visit.
