How many students can you cater for?
Group size depends on activities – we are able to teach from group sizes of 10-100 students.We can put up to 80 students on yachts and keelboats. Our Dragon Boating Regattas are frequently held with groups of over 120 people and sometimes as many as 200.
What age range do you provide activity for?
Does everyone have to be able to swim?
Can beginners be included in sailing and the other adventure activities?
Some teachers may want to be involved too, is this possible?
Yes, we are delighted to have teachers join in and this always goes down well with the students too. We recommend that your school sends their teachers to us for a weekend prior to any school trip, so that they are one step ahead of their students and can take an active part in the teaching and learning process. Please see our Leader Pre-Visits page for further details.
Do you offer teachers INSET prior to participating in Sail Training courses or Adventure Activity weeks?
Do you have set Adventure Programs as well as flexible Bespoke Programs?
Do you help Schools with Risk Assessments?
Yes, we do. We have risk assessed all of our activities and can provide to Schools upon request (although these will need to be personalised for each group and agreed with your school's EVC (Educational Visits Coordinator). We are an IYT Sea School and the Principal is a former Outdoor Education Specialist teacher (UK trained) who has many years of experience in minimising the risk of what are essentially low risk activities, properly and effectively organised. Our risk management procedures are outlined on our Health and Safety page; our Health and Safety Policy and all of our risk assessments are available for download on our Trip Admin page.
