Although we offer a wide range of programmes, our education team are happy to work with you to develop a bespoke programme around your own curriculum aims and objectives. For more information please contact the team.

Dynamic risk assessments are carried out by our delivery team constantly and if conditions change during the activity we reserve the right to change the activity to suit. Historically we have never cancelled a session due to the weather but have always worked around it so it is important that you are dressed appropriately.
