Inspire through adventure

Develop engaged, motivated students, who are eager to learn - with a PGL Multi-Activity course.

Each activity presents its own set of challenges, so it’s about finding the courage take a step into the unknown, to jump, climb and paddle; to do lots of things you can’t do at school.

It’s about working together to experience success as part of a team, improving self-confidence and learning new skills.

Activities

There are four, one-and-a-half hour sessions each full day, with adventure activities to keep everyone engaged, motivated and inspired.

Watch your high fliers on the zip wire, see who braves the trapeze, or help your students build a raft to race across the lake.

And after your action-packed day, we provide a programme of fun evening entertainment, guaranteed to keep you and your students busy and entertained.
