Expedition & Adventure

Expedition & Adventure
Senior (11 - 16)

A comprehensive adventurous activities programme

We offer a whole range of opportunities to get stuck into and learn about the great outdoors both in the UK and overseas. See our latest updates on the Adventurous Activities Twitter page

Run throughout the entire course of a pupil’s time here, the programme builds on itself steadily with the aim to instil practical and social skills step by step.

Pupils are given progressively larger opportunities and expeditions as pupils move further up the school, using the ever-growing skills and experiences gained.

The programme is run by professional and experienced staff with relevant and appropriate qualifications. As well as current teachers, some of our adventurous activities staff come from outside of Churcher’s, enabling us to draw on a much larger pool of experience and connections.

Alongside regular trips beyond our walls, all facilities at the school are also utilised, including our swimming pool, climbing wall and extensive green space.

We encourage students to widen their horizons and develop skills for life by taking risks outside simple comfort zones.

As a result, our aim is for pupils to develop into well-rounded, self-confident and socially-aware individuals.
