Having access to Indoor & outdoor climbing activity centres can carry great benefits to pupils & youths alike. A fun & challenging climbing activity is proven to exercise the mind and also the body – ideal for students & teachers wishing to take learning outside of the classroom. Aside from some of the obvious physical advantages like getting the heart pumping (a 1-hour session alone can burn well over 700 calories!), building muscle & endurance and developing flexibility, climbing experiences are also proven to help students by boosting brain function, teaching valuable life & problem-solving skills, and reducing stress, to name but a few. Remember, an indoor climbing school trip can go ahead as planned whatever the weather, and is a fantastic way for beginners to learn the fundamentals & basics of working as part of a team, or as individual, in a safe & dry environment! Climbing centres can be used as an alternative to less conventional P.E. sport and in addition, can offer something to those children that find usual school sports challenging. Climbing can be useful for all Key stage 1 to 3 pupils; however, can be especially beneficial for those Key stage 4 pupils looking to take climbing as a GCSE P.E. & sport assessed activity. Please see our listed Climbing activity centres to find a suitable venue.
