KS3 Outdoor Education

Students generally access Outdoor Education one day a week, where they will be offsite and taking part in various activities to build up their ASPIRE skills.  We utilise local outdoor activity centres such as Avon Tyrell and New Forest Activities to deliver high quality sessions that get students out of the classroom, but still allow them to learn and grow. This gives the students an opportunity to develop essential life skills which are linked to our ASPIRE curriculum in school. It also allows the students to experience new things in a different environment and be pushed out of their comfort zones to build up their resilience. Activities include climbing, abseiling, bushcraft, paddleboarding and kayaking.  All of these sessions will have an underlying focus on a different aspect of ASPIRE each week. Whether that be a teamwork challenge in which they must build up their relationships with others or build up their resilience.
