What will students see and do?

Conveniently located near Skipton in the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales, High Adventure OEC was established by former teachers. Their mission is to make the process of planning a school trip as straightforward as possible.

The centre staff design bespoke adventure activities to meet the learning goals and requirements of your group. The overall objective is to provide a multi-activity residential stay to develop character education and soft skills like confidence and communication, as well as meeting curricular outcomes.

Off-site activities are also available, with the centre’s minibus transporting groups to the nearby reservoir for water sports activities and caving. A short walk away is Earl Crag, offering rock climbing opportunities. Ribblehead Viaduct and Malham Cove are also within reach for further exploration.

There are two accommodation buildings with the main centre sleeping up to 93 visitors. There’s also a purpose-built accommodation building, with rooms designed to be as comfortable and homely as possible for younger pupils potentially on their first residential stay. This space, known as The Nook, can sleep 57 primary-age students and seven teachers.

If your group has more than 40 paying visitors, you’ll have exclusive use of the building. If the group is 29-39 people, you will have exclusive use of one floor.

The ProActive Education programme is designed to include young people who are at risk of exclusion from education. The objective is to develop communication skills through an alternative curricular approach.
