Schools & Colleges

Want to introduce your school, college or university group to adventure in the great outdoors? With over 20 years experience working with education groups and with many of our staff being qualified teachers, we have the expertise to design courses that will maximize the educational value (and enjoyment) for your students.

At High Points we aim to deliver outdoor education which provides opportunities for participants to develop as individuals whilst building stronger relationships with others, in a safe environment. We believe that outdoor education can contribute to a holistic education in which young people can learn valuable lessons about their capabilities, attitude and potential. We actively seek to promote leadership, teamwork, personal responsibility, and personal achievement.

Our range of clients include primary schools, secondary schools, special schools and colleges. We tailor all our courses to meet the needs of individuals and groups.

 

Activities

 

Team Building

  • Full-day canoe trips on Cumbrian Lakes
  • Duke of Edinburgh expeditions
  • Mountain expeditions with wild camping
  • Week-long Scottish canoe trips
