GCSE PE Courses

 

Develop your GCSE PE students skills in cycling or indoor climbing. Whether your exam board is Edexcel, AQA or OCR we can deliver the training & assessment of indoor climbing and cycling. This leaves you free to support your group, take photo/video evidence or be fully involved in the marking process.

The experience of coming to High Adventure Outdoor Education Centre helps to bond their course, increases the kudos of the GCSE PE course – giving it a higher value within their school, and helping students develop their practical skills. 

High Adventure acts as your technical adviser for these activities, providing expert coaching and advice. Your instructors will help your students develop their skills and will provide you with advisory grades based on what abilities they demonstrate whilst with us.

Trips can be used to:

  • Introduce and develop skills in cycling or indoor climbing,
  • Assess your GCSE candidates in cycling or indoor climbing,
  • Moderate grades.

Your candidates can maximise their opportunity to learn and be assessed. This will give them an excellent opportunity to score well in the practical element of their GCSE course.

Filming:

Your staff are responsible for the collection of supporting video evidence.

The instructors need all of the time they have with your students to teach and assess, this means they cannot do the filming for you. They will give guidance on what your staff need to film, if needed.

We provide numbered, coloured bibs to help identify students on your filming evidence.

We provide FREE access to cameras and tripods, which you can use during your visit. You can bring your own cameras or SD cards if you wish. We use class 4, 16GB standard size SD cards in our cameras.

If you use our cameras you can either buy the SD card out of each camera you use for £10 per SD card or you can download the footage to your own laptop. If you download the footage please make sure you hand back the SD card cleared of all footage.

**Please note that any footage left on cameras will be deleted. We cannot keep footage of the young people.

 

Road cycling:

This is an outdoor sport run on a tarmac carpark, local roads and a closed road circuit. Your students and staff will need to be able to ride a bike to a good level before coming to us. We provide the bikes, hi-vis numbered bibs, helmets and all the repair equipment needed. We recommend students come in sports clothing appropriate for the weather and if possible, cycling clothing such as padded shorts, gloves, etc..  To help students we recommend they complete the pre-trip worksheets available from our website and look up some of the cycling tips videos on Youtube. The boards expect to see varied footage. We will do our best to support this in the time you allow for the activity, however we recommend to get the highest grade bands that your students collect additional evidence before or after a trip to High Adventure.

**Please note your staff need to ride with the group so that they can support  our staff and collect video evidence.

 

Indoor climbing:

Indoor climbing is the term used to describe “person-made” artificial climbing walls. Your students may use our indoor wall, outside artificial wall, bouldering wall, mobile climbing tower or other local indoor climbing venues. We provide all safety equipment as well as access to climbing shoes if your group chooses to use them. We recommend that students come in sports clothing. If they have their own climbing shoes they are welcome to bring them. To help students we recommend they complete the pre-trip worksheets available from our website and look up how to tie the knots on Youtube. The boards expect to see varied footage. We will do our best to support this in the time you allow for the activity, however we recommend to get the highest grade bands that your students collect additional evidence before or after a trip to High Adventure.
