All our visits can be linked to the secondary school National Curriculum.
Book a day visit or a residential at one of our centres for your young people to enjoy a number of activities with real learning outcomes.
Secondary Schools Residentials
Outdoor learning is not just for primary schools. We can help you to make a difference to your secondary schools students’ lives. We can develop activities for your group to build confidence and teamwork amongst your new Year 7’s who will start the new school year as strangers but will leave our centre as close friends.
Taking the students outside the classroom will inspire them to support each other and work harder, which will in turn see them develop long term friendships. Above all, they will start to look at things in a whole new way.
Make your secondary schools residential at Boundless Outdoors more than just another school trip!
Aim high – achieve more!
GCSE & A LEVEL
With a range of adventure activities focussed on GCSE and A Level subjects, more specifically biology, geography and PE, we can design courses to support the National Curriculum, tailor-made for your groups requirements.
Time for a field trip? Why not book a day visit or residential trip for your GCSE group to look at their studies from a different angle in the great outdoors. Looking specifically at the physical and human geography elements in their fieldwork studies whilst staying at one of our centres.
Stretch your students to the max, taking them outside of the classroom, bringing their studies to life, developing their investigative and analytical skills through hands-on learning on a field trip to one of our centres.
GCSE PE (PHYSICAL EDUCATION)
Help your students achieve more at GCSE PE with a variety of outdoor activities. Whichever examination board you use, we offer a tailor-made course to suit your students. As a result, we endeavour that students have the maximum potential to achieve stronger grades.
Currently on offer at our two centres, we can design courses based around Archery, Canoeing, Climbing, Kayaking and Orienteering to tie in with the GCSE PE curriculum.
Our experienced and qualified staff deliver the sessions over 3 or 5 residential trip or we can also offer day visits if you would prefer to spread it over a term.
By coming on a residential stay you are not only adding that something extra to your GCSE PE course but also you will be safe in the knowledge that your students will be develop new friendships that far outlast this course.
With our central locations only 1 hour from Birmingham and close to the motorway network which means that we are perfectly positioned to offer high-quality outdoor education to everyone. If transport is a problem then we can help with local pick up.
If you would like more information please contact us and we will be happy to design a course around your needs.
Vandyke Upper School’s Year 11 GCSE PE students had a fantastic time carrying out Orienteering and Climbing Activities at Malvern Boundless Outdoors Centre. They all thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and this was mainly down to the encouragement, advice and support they received and the positive relationships they built with the Malvern instructors. The students worked hard and achieved excellent GCSE PE practical grades. They not only learnt Climbing and Orienteering techniques but also developed their teamwork and leadership skills and improved their resilience, determination and mental toughness. We will definitely be returning next year with our current Year 10 students.

What our visitors say
All the staff at the centre were very helpful and adapted the courses and activities to suit the students individual needs.
All the children loved their time and developed as young people during their stay.
A great venue in the centre of country. With good food, amazing staff and facilities ideal for young people. Our groups really enjoyed the high ropes and exploring the local area.
What a brilliant time we have had! Our students were a little nervous when we arrived at your centre, but your staff soon put them at ease as they ventured outside onto the ropes course. Thank you for everything!
