Outdoor Education

Our unique location, at the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, provides us with the natural resources to extend our classroom beyond the walls of the school.  Through adventure and adventurous learning, our pupils learn directly about the environment, each other and themselves.

Our Combined Cadet Force and Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme is long established, alongside these, from September 2020, pupils will be able to access the Beacon Course.

The Beacon Course adventure programme is a series of progressive and challenging outdoor activities aimed at encouraging our pupils’ physical, spiritual, social and moral development.  We believe building self-reliance and self-confidence are fundamental to our pupils’ preparation for life, during and post education.

The programme will provide all Year 4 to Year 12 students with three multi activity days each year.  Each student will be given the opportunity to immerse themselves in the outdoor environment: paddling; climbing; walking and exploring with their classmates.  Through this activity children will face new, exciting challenges and through teamwork, communication, goal setting and leadership they will succeed and build their self-confidence.  It will also be tremendous fun!
