The children in KS1 & KS2 enjoyed a very special experience day, as they were able to attempt ascending a state of the art climbing wall. Trained instructors were on hand to keep children safe and ensure everyone enjoyed the experience, which they clearly did.

Climbing is one of the fastest growing sporting activities. It simultaneously develops coordination, strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. Additionally, important life skills like problem-solving, goal-setting, perseverance, inner confidence and patience were developed.

To quote Rebecca Border “It was hard to start with, however, I really enjoyed the challenge – on my fourth attempt I got to the top!”
