What will students see and do?

A Go Ape Treetop Adventure will challenge, excite and energise your students, as they overcome new challenges and reached new heights. There is plenty for your pupils to learn from solving problems and going out of their comfort zones in a safe, controlled environment.

The park caters to people of all different levels. They have several activities available to try.

– Treetop Challenge – 2 to 3 hours
– Treetop Adventure – 1 hour
– Forest Segway trips

More detail about the adventures on offer at Go Ape Cannock can be found on their website. Be sure to check height restrictions before booking.

Teaching resources provided

Go Ape provides learning curriculum-linked resources for various subjects based on its treetop courses, which can be found on its website. You’ll also find schools information packs.

Minimum and maximum group size

Go Ape can host anywhere between 10-300 participants. With larger numbers, however, your pupils may be split into smaller groups for activities.

You will need a supervising adult for every small group, and you can discuss the exact requirements for your trip when booking.

Details of risk assessment

The staff at Go Ape work on a high-risk, high-reward teaching model: your pupils face challenges and gain much from overcoming them. But the nature of the activities requires rigorous safety testing.

All activities have been rigorously risk assessed, and the qualified staff will always be on hand to support and guide your pupils through their new learning experiences.
