Outdoor Education

As well as opportunities for curricular climbing, kayaking, sailing and bush craft activities, Bloxham has recently offered exciting overseas trips including climbing in the Swiss Alps, the Second Form French Alps trip and skiing in Italy.

These activities are all specifically designed to challenge students to build upon their strengths, recognise their limitations and develop their potential. Placing students in a different context from one in which they normally find themselves is a powerful learning tool.

The learning that comes from outdoor education is not just acquisition of new knowledge, skills and information but a deeper level of personal understanding that becomes embodied within individuals.
