In the Brecon Beacons we are lucky to have some of the best environments and venues for Real Outdoor Adventurous Activities. When a group wants to get out and have full-on challenging and fun activities, we put an action packed programme together for them.

The Skinners Academy is a Cass Foundation supported school. Their sixth form course includes Gorge Walking, a great adventurous activity that is a firm favourite with the students and school staff alike.

They have loads of fun, develop resilience, develop leadership and team skills and learn about the special history and ecology of the area.

Student are actively involved in the risk assessing process and are taught how move safely through the gorge that includes rock scrambling up waterfalls, swimming in moving water and jumping off progressively bigger waterfalls throughout the journey.
