Other Information

At Pioneer Centre we are passionate about providing pupils with opportunities to shine and then, with all they have learned about themselves and their peers, step boldly into everything the future has to offer.

We believe that young people can learn to overcome and as their confidence grows, so they will develop resources within that can be called upon back in the classroom and in times of challenge. Through our instructed adventure activities, your pupils will push through their perceived personal limits and develop empathy for those different to themselves, so learning the value of team.
