In partnership with Peak District Survival School, we provide outdoor education provision on a Thursday. Our Survival School will be led by an experienced outdoor education team from Peak District Survival School and their lead instructor Mark Fox, who has over 20 years of experience in outdoor education.
Peak District Survival School is regulated by The Adventurous Activity Licensing Service and holds endorsements including: Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge, Adventure Mark and delivers teacher/ Outdoor Education training accreditation under the NCFE.
Lessons will include a range of activities including:
The programme will run each Thursday, with each class participating for half a day each. Each class across the whole school will engage in the program for half a term on rotation throughout the year.
