School Activity Days


If you want to book an event for your students, take a look through the options below. If you don’t see something that you want, why not get in touch and we could put together something tailored just for you!

  • Forest School

    Our forest school sessions can be booked for any age group, although we generally delivered it to key stage 1 and 2 groups. You can either bring your children out to our brilliant Forest School site, or we can bring our staff and equipment out to your preferred space. Book one of our woodland based sessions, specify a topic you'd like to see featured, or have us focus on a team building or woodland day. We can even do a series of sessions to feature as part of your schools regular curriculum programme.

  • Young Explorers

    Similar to the Forest School option, this is a programme that we recommend for older children. You can book your students on one or more days to do training in a variety of outdoor skills and activities. These days could be booked as part of a programme to fit within your current school curriculum, as reward days for students that have done well or incentive days for those who need something to reach for.

  • Treasure Hunts/ Crime Mystery

    Our Treasure Hunts, Mysteries and Challenges provide an excellent way for pupils to develop their leadership, teamwork and critical thinking skills as they must work to solve puzzles and navigate the game area. Our activities can also provide a great opportunity for pupils to experience museums and landmarks in an engaging and creative way as well as allowing them to explore and discover areas they might otherwise overlook.

  • Problem Solving Carousels

    These events can be run in almost any school hall, playground or local park. Small teams are asked to work together, either on a succession of diverse challenges which require lateral thought and communication to solve or on one multi-faceted problem, with the whole team designing and building a vehicle with a precise brief and limited materials.

  • Woodland Skills

    An extension of our Forest School programme, this activity works best in a small woodland but some elements can be run on school playing fields. The skills covered would include whittlings, fire lighting, campfire cooking, making natural cordage and camouflage and concealment games

  • Navigation Training

    The ability to follow a map and relate the world around you to a graphical representation is a key life skill and gives young people confidence to operate in more remote environments. Our navigation training is delivered by qualified Mountain Leaders and covers a range of navigational skills such as using bearings, pacing and topographical features.

  • Trebuchet Building

    Small groups are led through a design and realisation process which starts with research and planning, moves through making small scale prototypes and working models before culminating in the building of full scale working trebuchets!

  • Cooking Class

    Another key life skill and something we place huge emphasis on while away on Expedition, learning to cook should form part of every young person's education. We are able to set up a temporary kitchen in any well ventilated room or outdoors and teach the children a range of simple but tasty recipes which they can go away and practice at home.
