We teach children how to reach their full potential through climbing and bouldering
We are very proud to be a UK Awarding Centre for NICAS (The National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme) and a UK Primary Centre for NIBAS (The National Indoor Bouldering Award Scheme).
Our regular climbing sessions for our Juniors and Youth are not only designed to coach them on how to learn and become safe and confident climbers but also to grow and develop their confidence, communication and social skills along with many other essential life skills.
The NICAS and NIBAS schemes are Nationally recognised awards which are also GCSE and Duke of Edinburgh accredited and all of our Junior and Youth climbing sessions (except Rockhuggers) are taught to these schemes. They offer a great opportunity for all youngsters.
