The Education Service provides a range of fun, exciting and outdoor courses for learners from Foundation to Post 16 in Mainstream and Special Schools.

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 courses 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.

The Adventure Service is regulated by NCSEP (Nottingham City Schools Education Partnership).

Learners will work towards their individual targets throughout their time at The Adventure Service.

They can also work towards nationally recognized qualifications such as AIM Awards, NNAS (National Navigation Awards Scheme) and Gears Mountain Bike Awards.
