Our Outward Bound and Bushcraft programme is without doubt one of the boys' favourite activities.
The adventures start in Reception with visits to The Thicket and Woolley Firs to explore nature, make shelters and understands the needs of life. The opportunities and challenges grow as your son progresses through the School, to full-on bushcraft sessions covering survival and firelighting, wildlife observation and tracking. By Year 3 the boys are ready to really test their critical thinking, team building and risk taking skills with an overnight camp and in Year 5 and 6, trips away to outdoor pursuit and field study centres.
Sharing their knowledge is another great way of embedding learning, the boys really enjoy showing their Dad’s their bushcraft skills, at special ‘Lads and Dads Books and Bushcraft' evenings, where around the campfire, they share their favourite books, build shelters and cook some tasty treats.
Those in the junior schools value the opportunities to try out new activities and express great enthusiasm for more adventurous ones such as bushcraft.
