Clip ‘n Climb School sessions are booked via appointment – and usually take place on the hour from 2pm – 6pm Monday to Friday. Alternative times on weekdays are available by prior appointment.

We offer four different types of school experience:

Explore Session

This is where the children have free range of the arena to ‘Explore’ and find their comfort levels on the walls. Our instructors are on hand to provide assistance and encouragement throughout. This is an ideal session for the first time a school group has visited Clip ‘n Climb. The main learning outcomes are developing confidence and provide the opportunity for children to face any fear of heights and challenges.

Team Building Session

This is where we get the group into teams and give them challenges to complete. As well as the learning outcomes achieved from our Explore sessions, Team sessions also help with problem solving and the ability to work in teams.

Examples of this include:

Wall Golf: Each touch of the wall is counted as a stroke as the climber ascends the wall,

Points Challenge: Each wall has multiple ways to complete it, with increasing points awarded according to difficulty. Climbers add their points to for each wall to their team score

Challenge Session

Two of our walls are particularly suited to competitive scoring:

Triffid – Our hardest wall. We keep a Roll of Honour for each climber who makes it to the top

Speed Wall – The speed of ascend is timing on a clock built into the wall. Times are recorded for each climber.

We keep a record for each group and this can be used to compare other groups from the same school. This is mostly aimed Key Stage 3.

While there is a competition element to both challenges, one of the very positive things about climbing is that it is very much about challenging yourself. We find that walls such as the Triffid and Speed Wall are more about climbers challenging themselves either to reach the top in the case of Triffid, or complete the wall in the fastest time, Speed Wall.

Rock Stars

For schools that will bringing in the same group on a regular basis, we offer our Rock Star programme which is based on the one we run for our successful after school club.

This involves structured sessions with varied activities, with time split between working towards the Rock Stars Awards and a variety of games and challenges.

The Rock Stars Awards are a set of standards that climbers work towards, which progress in difficulty. They involve a mixture of completing walls, completing the walls in set ways and confirm understanding of safety issues. Children can work towards Bronze, Silver, Gold, Training Ninja, Ninja and Training silent Ninja. Certificates are issued for each award and progress is kept in a log book.
