First Ascent Award

The First Ascent programme allows pupils to complete their first mountain adventure. Our qualified staff will work with pupils to reach the summit of the school's chosen mountain. Designed for Year 5 and Year 6 pupils, the first ascent is a perfect addition to quality outdoor education.

Our experienced instructors have created an in-depth programme to introduce key outdoor skills and values to young people. Pupils will learn about navigation, how to trust each other and manage risk. Pupils will also learn about the geology and landscape of the area.

Our skilled staff will adapt the learning content and walking speed to allow all pupils to realise their potential.

This is a unique expedition that mixes an unforgettable experience with high-quality education. Each trip is fully tailored to an individual school’s needs and requirements.
