A week with The Outward Bound Trust

What a great week I had recently at The Outward Bound Trust Ullswater Centre with children from my old Barnsley school. It certainly felt strange going as a volunteer and not headteacher! Whilst outdoor activity residential’s are always special this was of particular note. It was our first venture with the OBT and proved to be just what we had been looking for over the years. Not only were the activities exciting and challenging but the focus on learning and developing life skills to take back to school and beyond was great. Team work, personal skills and challenge, relationships and communication were amongst the areas developed so effectively during the week. The daily learning review with both with the children and the staff (who were exceptional) made this a brilliant experience for us all! We have already booked for 2016.

The learning and impact we focus on with Primary Futures is very much reflected in the work of the OBT ………. highly recommended by us all at ASPS.
