Secondary education programme at The Hampshire & Cass Foundation Mountain Centre

These courses usually include activities such as Mountain Walking, Caving, Canoeing, Rock Climbing/Abseiling and Gorge Walking.

Canoeing is a great activity for personal development, where students have to work together to complete a challenging journey.

We help students develop skills, such as leadership, progressively during each day and build upon learning over multi day programmes. By the end of a five day course students develop characteristics such as effective communication, leadership skills, tolerance and resilience, while becoming more effective at working with others. They enjoy the process and take great satisfaction in recognising their achievements through a focused review process. As a result they grow in confidence as the week progresses.
