SECONDARY SCHOOLS

At High Adventure, we’re dedicated to supporting students with their development.

We offer multiple educational services for secondary school from adventurous residential trips, to facilitating GCSE PE groups and providing technical advice. 

Every programme is curriculum-linked and focussed on both personal and social development. 

We provide an all-inclusive service, ensuring bespoke programming guaranteed to include appropriate activities, the security and standards needed to create a unique educational environment. 

Given our unique background, we understand how daunting planning a trip can be for teachers and group leader, so we do our absolute best to make it a simple process. All relevant paperwork is available online in our Resource Centre and we are always on hand to walk you through your booking, giving you more time to focus on what matters!

Multi-Activity Trips

Our multi activity programmes are designed to challenge and motivate people of all ages and abilities.

We aim to promote independence of thought and action and give pupils, as they will perceive it, a significant amount of responsibility. As well as learning a lot about the outdoors and the activities on offer we hope that each person will go away knowing a little bit more about themselves.

We offer a number of options from day trips to week-long residentials and everything in between! Each residential visit is all-inclusive with all dietary needs catered to and we ensure high-levels of activity with maximum participation.

For more information on the activities we can offer – please visit our Activities page.

FEEDBACK FROM OUR SECONDARY SCHOOL VISITORS

A fantastic and enjoyable weekend for our students

The trip was brilliant, I couldn’t have been more impressed with how professional and helpful every single one of your staff were. Abbie was brilliant, really enthusiastic and helpful, and led one of our groups exceptionally well on the climbing activities. Steph was equally as brill, and supported one of our weaker students excellently. Both of them were so good and they got some brilliant grades out of our students too.

Also, your accommodation staff were outstanding. Again, so so helpful and they couldn’t do enough for us.
Pass on my thanks to every one of them, they all contributed to making it a fantastic and enjoyable weekend for our students and they looked after us staff too! Thanks once again.
