Adventure Cost and Timings

Adventures cost £120 for a class of up to 32 pupils and each one goes for approximately two hours. The morning slots start between 9.30am and 10.30am and go to between 11:30am and 12.30pm. The afternoon slots start between 12.30pm and 1.30pm and go to between 2:30pm and 3.15pm.

The Adventure

After a safety discussion, the adventure lead sets a team or individual challenge that relates to the topic being studied in class and the learning objectives agreed with the teacher.  These can range from expeditions to find and identify mini-beasts and predict populations to following orienteering clues to find Boudicca’s lost treasure to setting up pulleys to building Crystal Palaces with bamboo. Anything, really.  School staff and accompanying parents can be called upon to support the session lead or teams if / when required.  Adventures end with a refreshment and discussion about the session.
