Develop new skills, reach hidden potential, learn to climb
The Royal Wootton Bassett Climbing Club has been created by Rockstar Climbing in association with the Royal Wootton Bassett Academy and offers RWBA students from any Year group to attend weekly climbing sessions at Rockstar Climbing Centre in Swindon.
Sessions run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4.00pm to 5.15pm and are aligned with the RWBA school terms, usually in six to seven week blocks depending on the term itself, and are instructed by professional qualified climbing coaches.
As part of these climbing sessions students are coached in both High Wall (roped) climbing and also Bouldering (unroped lower level climbing) and as well as learning all about climbing, balance, movement and technique they also learn belaying skills, rope management skills and all important safety principles.
Sessions are structured and delivered to two National syllabuses, the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS) and the National Indoor Bouldering Award Scheme (NIBAS). Both schemes are UK GCSE and Duke of Edinburgh accredited and students can also attend the RWBA Climbing Club as part of their GCSE PE.
Climbing is a fantastic activity for all juniors and teens. As well as teaching new skills and enjoying the thrilling world of indoor climbing it also teaches problem solving skills, determination, communication, teamwork and trust.
As students progress throught the RWBA Climbing Club they will receive recognition for their efforts and be rewarded with certificates as they pass their various NICAS and NIBAS levels.
Please note that whilst the RWBA Climbing Club is organised through Royal Wootton Bassett Academy the school sadly cannot provide transportation so parents are kindly asked to transport their children to and from each session.
All sessions take place at Rockstar Climbing in Swindon.
