What we offer

We offer full day visits (five hours between 10am and 3pm), half day visits (morning or afternoon activity), and regular progressive sessions for schools to learn a sport within the PE or Games sessions, for example. Students typically participate in two activities in a full day, and one activity in a half day. The activity days/half days generally focus on trying new activities and having fun. Regular sessions enable development of skills following syllabi set by National Governing Bodies, with certificates awarded where achieved.
