What we offer
Yet the centre is just minutes from the leafy suburbs of Hexham so it's easily accessible for schools across Scotland and the north of England.
With stimulating environments, state of the-art facilities and highly qualified instructors, we can work with you to go beyond classroom teaching and textbook theory. Accelerated learning by doing and the ultimate adventure activity experience; a chance to enhance education, put theory into practice and encourage independence, self-awareness and teamwork every day.
Our educationally rich modules and sessions are designed to complement current curricula and exam criteria and provide a stimulating learning opportunity outside the classroom for maximum academic benefit. Young people are equipped with the knowledge, key values and important PLTS skills to encourage them to think for themselves and adapt what they learn; to analyse problems and find solutions at every turn; to embrace challenges with enthusiasm and adopt a positive mental attitude to life and change.
Benefits gained are immense, from the development of a healthy self-awareness and empathy for others and their environment, to an increase in concentration, to a greater level of respect for those - both teachers and peers alike - who have shared the same journey.
With all programmes tailored to help you meet your objectives, and unlimited help and guidance available every step of the way, at Kingswood we can provide that perfect blend of excitement, creative learning and adventure to meet your needs and requirements.
