It is our team’s professionalism, experience and enthusiasm which contributes to the overall success of your stay with us. That’s why all our activity providers are professionally trained and qualified, with full DBS checks, and First Aid certificates. For further peace of mind, there is also a 24-hour First-Aider available at the Centre. We hold the AHOEC Gold Standard quality mark which goes beyond the standards set by the other badges that we hold. This demonstrates our high quality provision encompassing not just safety, but also the quality of service and learning. It is important that young people are given the opportunity to take risks and experience the thrill of adventure sports and activities in a controlled and safe environment. Consideration for your pupils’ safety and security is inherent in everything we do. Our centre undergoes regular risk assessments and health and safety checks, carried out internally by our team and by external organisations to ensure we remain at the forefront of good health and safety practice.
We think it's important that everyone should be able to enjoy the outdoors - For this reason, our Centre is adapted to suit young people with additional learning requirements and physical disabilities. We have two wheelchair accessible rooms with full ensuite wet room facilities, and can arrange for additional equipment to be hired depending on the level of ability The majority of our activities are also inclusive - we work with each individual medical requirement to ensure that the sessions are suitable.
We do our absolute best to cater for any Special Educational Needs - please do give us a call to discuss your requirements so that we can provide further information on how our activities and accommodation will be suitable.
We are huge advocates for the benefits of outdoor adventure and learning in young people. Through our engaging activities your pupils will develop important skills from leadership and teamwork, decision-making, and problem-solving. These experiences will broaden their horizons to new, undiscovered opportunities, expand their appetite for learning and education, increase attainment, and will equip your students with valuable social skills which will last a lifetime.
Our flexible approach means we can offer your pupils a programme of activities which will meet your learning objectives and aims.
Our modern Centre has 140 beds all with ensuite bathrooms with 40 beds in additional glamping pods, three classroom areas, an outdoor classroom, full catering facilities, and even an indoor climbing wall. All our rooms are equipped with en suite facilities, and secured with special access key cards. There are also lockers available in the rooms to keep valuables safe whilst your outside having fun!
The Centre is self-sustaining and eco-friendly using solar power to heat water and generate electricity, rain water to flush toilets, and harness waste heat to warm the rooms.
We believe that residential trips offers students an unparalleled opportunity to develop their confidence and independence away from home, whilst creating some fantastic memories with their friends.
