The Adventure Service believes that learning outside the classroom, whether on the hills, in woodland or on the school field or playground, provides an exciting and stimulating change for learners.
We provide bespoke learning packages based on a Person Centred Approach for students from Foundation to Post-16, in mainstream and special schools.
Through our experience of delivering outdoor adventure, we feel that outdoor learning provides an opportunity for those involved to take acceptable levels of risk, develop the ability to deal with uncertainty, develop new skills and independence and raise their environmental awareness.
Activities include Forest Schools, Mountain Biking, Climbing, Weaselling, Bushcraft, Archery, Canoeing and much more!
The Adventure Service is regulated by NCSEP (Nottingham City Schools Education Partnership).
We work with nurture students, students at risk of exclusion and students with learning disabilities.
Students will work towards individual targets set throughout their time with The Adventure Service. They may also work towards nationally recognised qualifications such as AIM Awards, NNAS (National Navigation Awards Scheme) and Gears Mountain Bike Awards (MIAS)
Schools we currently work with include St Giles School, Bulwell Academy, Bracken Hill School, Yeoman Park Special School and Stubbin Wood School.
We also run taster days for Post-16, to see if our Day Service is something they may be interested in when they move on from school. We have previously run taster days for Newark Orchard School, Yeoman Park Special School, Stubbin Wood School and Redgate School
