 ‘Outdoor activities such as sea kayaking provide exceptional opportunity ’

OFSTED 2012

The school promotes adventurous approaches to learning, both inside and outside the classroom, becoming the first special school to receive Adventure Learning status in 2010. A highly skilled and experienced outdoor education specialist within the school creates a rolling programme of outdoor education linked to thematic learning within the class, covering hill walking, canoeing, climbing and abseiling, sailing and sea kayaking, leading to residential opportunities.

Approaches used within adventure learning foster independence and practical thinking skills. Adapted equipment is used, and activities differentiated, to ensure these activities are as inclusive as possible, with links back to the curriculum in school.
