Clifton High School has launched new outdoor education provision, Clifton High Adventure
Beginning in the Summer Term 2021, Clifton High’s new outdoor education programme, Clifton High Adventure, will commence with weekly lessons and short courses for the Infant and Junior School and day visits for all senior years.
The aim of the Adventure programme is to enable skills development, rather than one-off introductory sessions – Clifton High hopes to make up for the time children have spent indoors over lockdown and to grow in them an appreciation for the living world.
The school has teamed up with Mendip Outdoor Pursuits, Belmont Estate and Oxfordshire Outdoors to create this bespoke outdoor education programme.
Visits to the Mendip Centre will include offsite forest school, climbing, kayaking, archery and hiking. Clifton High teaching staff will lead outdoor curriculum enrichment such as nature studies, art and creative writing.
The Infant School will enjoy beach education, where they will incorporate art, design, construction, science and drama. Farm education at Belmont Estate will also be provided for children in Reception-Year 4 to learn about nature, sustainability, non-aggressive farming, conservation, rewilding and the environment.
Commencing September 2021, the Senior School provision will include weekly extra-curricular clubs; curricular field trips such as English creative writing lessons in the Mendip Hills, biology lessons on the South West coastline; end-of-year bonding trips; and opportunities for coaching on individual pursuit sports.
