Secondary Schools

Albert PritchardTypically our courses are based around a mix of activities that are adventurous, progressive, innovative, challenging and exciting.

The activities themselves often require commitment, endeavour and resilience. As a result, many young people develop leadership qualities and grow in self confidence and self respect.  No matter what the activity, staff recognise that every person has a different start point and will need support to enable them to progress and achieve as much as possible.  By using real life settings and experiences, young people have the opportunity to develop an understanding of risk and consequence in a stimulating and challenging environment.
