Orienteering

Orienteering is an activity that encourages young people to develop their navigational skills, to make decisions, solve problems and to help them gain confidence.

Students use a map and compass to navigate from point to point using specially prepared orienteering maps either individually or in small teams, which they use to find control points.  We have a range of courses  available to get the most out of students, whether they are being introduced to the sport, it is an extension to orienteering they have already done in school or it is part of an A level course in mountain navigation skills.

At KS2 students complete on-site orienteering in our secure 20 acre grounds on a range of courses.  At KS3 and above, this can be extended to include navigation exercises in the surrounding areas and beyond.
