Activities

Our activities are designed to positively challenge individuals to enable them to build personal skills such as; creativity, determination, teamwork, independence, confidence and communication skills. Outdoor residential activities provide a great alternative learning environment for pupils to succeed and thrive out of the classroom and experience many challenging activities in an informal and inclusive learning environment.
  • Activities will start after lunch on the first day or your school must arrive at 09:00 if you would like a full day of activities on the first day.
