What will students see and do?
On the doorstep of the beautiful Peak District with its dramatic gritstone edges, wild heather moorlands and gentle limestone dales, Peak Venture is located around 30 minutes north of Sheffield and nestled in sheltered woodlands and fields.
As well as being the perfect setting for nature walks and bushcraft activities, this residential and activity centre houses an exhilarating adventure park with zipwire and exciting 3G swing.
Fully supervised water-based activities take place on the adjacent South Dike Reservoir, including raft-building and canoeing.
Teaching resources provided
Kingswood, in partnership with Enrich Education, provide visitors with pre- and post-trip activity packs.
Packs includes a selection of activities that support PE, English, maths, science and geography curricula, taken from the Enrich School Orienteering and Outdoor Learning Digital Hub, which is home to over 200 cross-curricular physical activity plans. Each activity links with one of the six Kingswood curriculum categories (Challenge, Play, Explore, Discover, Social, Reflect). All activities include a teacher’s plan and children’s resource sheets where required.
The packs enable schools to create opportunities to introduce outdoor adventurous activities to children, developing their initial orienteering skills and helping to foster a love for outdoor learning.
In addition to the activity packs, Kingswood offers schools a unique ‘confidence tracker’ tool, created in partnership with insight specialists Spike and with counsel from Dr Alice Jones Bartoli and Professor Justin Dillon, to enable them to evidence and evaluate the success of a trip. This is a fantastic take-home to share with parents or carers after a trip and can also form a wider project on character education or development.
Minimum and maximum group size
The maximum number of students per activity is 15.
Kingswood can usually accommodate smaller groups with complex SEN requirements on request.
