On Track in schools
Climbing boosts physical and mental wellbeing, while creating a focus and commitment which can help pupils overcome the barriers to learning in the classroom.
Climbing also improves communication skills, confidence and self-esteem, and proves popular with pupil who often fail to engage with mainstream sports.
The On Track climbing programme sets pupils goals to work towards and includes drop testing and belaying techniques which helps pupils overcome fears and develop trust and compentency.
Our climbing instructors encourage pupils to reflect and discuss achievements at the end of each session, generating positive interaction which supports academic development.
The climbing programme, delivered as part of the curriculum for pupils in Year 5 upwards, can be run for groups of up to 12 pupils or offered on a one-to-one, mentoring basis.
The programme includes travel to the University of Warwick's Bear Rock Climbing Centre and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Centre in Rugby.
