What will students see and do?
The Channel Adventure centre’s founders are qualified teachers, and passionate about delivering quality outdoor education. They believe that engaging with the outside world is crucial for a child’s upbringing, skill development, and a lifelong healthy lifestyle.
The centre was rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for Personal Development and Outcomes for Learners. Working with the team, you can create a custom package to support your curriculum learning objectives.
Channel Adventure offers a range of on-land and water-based activities to engage participants. The centre is located across three sites in the South West: Minehead and Taunton in Somerset, and Torquay in Devon.
The Somerset locations, which are 25 miles apart, host most of the activities. If you’re looking for a coasteering experience for the students, you’ll need to head down to Torquay, which is just over 50 miles from Taunton.
The centre’s ‘Enrichment programme’, is available as a half-day or full-day session. The half-day programme includes a 2.5-hour session of either two introductory activity sessions or one development session. This can be a combination of any of the land or water-based activities.
The full-day programme is a 5-hour activity day, combining two half-day programmes. The centre also offers practical sessions for BTEC delivery.

The activities in Taunton benefit from all the facilities of the custom-built activity centre, including changing rooms, hot showers, and an onsite cafe. There’s also a room available for hire, for any additional activities.
The Minehead location doesn’t have shelter available, so it’s recommended to wear weather-appropriate clothing on arrival.
If you’re going coasteering in Torquay, your instructor will meet the group in the car park with all equipment. There are no facilities otherwise associated with the activity.
Opening hours vary depending on the site and activity. Most activities take place within normal school opening hours. Contact the centre for more information.
A half-day programme includes a 2.5-hour session for £17.50 per person.
A full day of activities combines two 2.5 hour packages and is priced at £25 per person.
There’s no parking available at the Taunton site, but it’s just a 10-minute walk from Taunton town centre.
The Minehead location is right on the seafront, ready for the activities to start. There’s free parking available on site.
Torquay’s activities take place at Anstey Cove, and you’ll meet the instructor at the car park.
