Realise Your Potential

We believe passionately in supporting young people through all aspects of their development. The focus of this newly designed programme is developing social, personal and emotional skills. By immersing young people in high challenge situations through the use of our mentally and physically adventurous activities, we can replicate an exposure to stress and pressure in a controlled, nurturing and supportive environment. Encouraging young people to visualise success, control anxiety and enabling them to perform at the peak of their abilities.

This programme helps to prepare students aged 13-18 for a future that they don’t yet know, equipping young people with the skills needed to succeed and allowing them to reach their potential, not only at school but in the next stage of their personal development and their future professional life. Focusing on confidence building and problem solving, it will help students to address important choices at school, university and life beyond.

By immersing young people in high challenge situations through the use of our mentally and physically adventurous activities, we replicate exposure to stress and pressure in a controlled, nurturing and supportive environment. Specially trained staff use a blend of Mental Toughness coaching, reflection sessions and lots of fun but challenging activities, to encourage self-awareness and learn the skills needed to become more resilient.

Encouraging students to visualise success, control anxiety and perform under pressure, means that the skills learned during the programme can be powerfully transferred back into everyday life, improving self-awareness and resilience.
