CURRICULUM FOCUSED DAYS

Bring your classroom days to life with our curriculum-linked activities. We ensure learning outside the classroom is engaging, fun and relevant. 

  • ECOSYSTEMS (KS1/KS2). 
    Learn about ecosystems and how to protect them. Be curious and gain a lifelong connection with nature. Perfectly suited to work alongside bushcraft sessions.
     

  • RIVERS (KS1/KS2)
    Discover the importance of rivers and learn about the water cycle, waterways, river-dwelling flora, and fauna. These sessions can be delivered from the bank or on the river.
     

  • ROCKS (KS1/KS2)
    The geology of the Mendips is stunning. Through practical exploration learn about rocks, their history and their uses. Mix with rock climbing or caving.
     

  • CLIMATE CHANGE (KS1/KS2)
    Explore what climate change is and take part in practical projects to learn about our impact and our positive action.

  • HISTORY (KS1/KS2) 
    Explore our historic mineral mine Sandford Levy, to embed a wide range of topics including history, geography and science; the mine was not only mined for minerals, it was also used as a secret station for a Home Guard Auxiliary Unit during the Second World War.

CLIMBING TOWER

Let us bring the adventure to you!

Our climbing tower is an accessible and easy way of ensuring lots of students can try the amazing challenge of rock climbing. Once they've soared to the heights on our transportable tower, they'll be ready to try real rock climbing at our private limestone quarry, Sandford Quarry.

The Climbing Tower is available at a set price rate for the whole day.

SKI LESSONS

The only ski slope in Somerset!

Learning on an artificial slope is perfect for students about to head on a ski trip. We'll put together a package of lessons to help them make the most of their trip.

Ski lessons are run at a ratio of 1:8 and we can have 3 beginner ski lessons taking place at the same time. Snowboarding beginner lessons are also available with more limited numbers.

Programme

PROGRESSIVE ACTIVITY PROGRAMS

We are able to put together an activity programme for your students over a term or school year in a range of activities to build resilience, confidence and a passion for adventure.

There are opportunities to develop a particular skill set through progressive sessions in all our activities. Many of them have national governing body awards associated with them. Examples include:

Caving
Students get to explore progressively more adventurous caves in the Mendip Hills and even South Wales learning about geology, exploration and even ropework.

 

Paddlesports
Stu
dents can learn to kayak, paddle board and canoe over several sessions and finish the programme with an exciting river expedition on a local river such as the River Avon or River Exe. Students can achieve the British Canoeing Paddle Explore or Paddle Start award.

 

Climbing
On a climbing programme, students will climb and abseil on a wide range of venues throughout Somerset and, by the end of the course, be able to safely climb with a partner with minimal supervision.
