What we offer on a school trip
The Medina Valley Centre is an independent Outdoor Education and Field Studies Centre based at the heart of the Isle of Wight. For nearly 40 years we have been delivering high quality courses to young people from KS2 to A Level and from all walks of life. Whether you want purely academic field studies, action packed activities or a combination of the two, we will work with you to develop a bespoke programme to meet your group’s needs.
Our activity team is made up of experienced and enthusiastic instructors who have a passion for personal development. Our aim is that groups have an opportunity to grow as both individuals and a team as well as having an absolutely fantastic time.We specialise in embedding developmental and life skills models (such as Kolbs Learning Cycle and Betari's Box) in our activities. Staff visiting the Centre regularly take the models we instill and are able to use them to great effect back in the classroom.
Kayaking, Sailing, Canoeing, Raft Building, Mountain Biking, Rifle Shooting, Archery, Bushcraft, Nightline, Team Challenges, Pioneering, Campfire and other evening activities.
Our team of field study tutors are subject specialists who have a passion for outdoor learning, and are continually striving to find new ways to enthuse young people about the world we live in!
