Secondary School Residential


Outdoor Adventure   Health and Wellbeing

At Peat Rigg we specialise in running courses which focus on Outdoor Adventure, Health and Wellbeing or Conservation.


Your residential experience could focus on one of these areas, alternatively we can put together a diverse programme which incorporates different experiences and outcomes for your learners.


For example; you may spend the morning dangling off a bridge or canoeing down a river, the afternoon getting hands on with our pigs, hens or bees and the evening discovering mindfulness in the woods.


We endeavour to support each school in delivering the curriculum through adventure and experiential education. Our instructors develop each residential in partnership with you to ensure we maximise these opportunities.

Your School Residential

How we work with your School

Secondary Schools students can take on a more demanding set of objectives.

Under experienced supervision they can take on a higher degree of ownership by having more demanding roles and responsibilities.

We regularly run courses for GCSE and A level PE and also for BTEC Sport.

We provide the coaching and assessment in the subject areas that are relevant to your exam board, and give students the opportunity to gain high practical marks.

To devise a course that meets your needs and values we will talk to you about which course themes are appropriate. We will then add into the mix your Schools priorities, the season and the appropriate degree of challenge.
