Nothing inspires and engages kids more than a school trip outside the classroom. At Challenge Academy we provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to learn and develop a range of life skills whilst having fun in the great outdoors. We work closely with schools to develop a tailored programme for the day to meet their specific needs.


If you’re looking for outdoor fun and an adventurous day with your friends and family then you’ve come to the right place. Visit us and unleash your inner adventurer by testing yourself on our High Ropes Course or Nets Adventure course and brand new for 2020 – the Obstacle Course and Ground-based Challenges.

Choose your focus prior to arrival and we will deliver an engaging programme with a focus on the positive development of teams and individuals. We work with trip organisers to ensure that the whole experience is meaningful, whether for reward, enrichment, social impact or targeted intervention.


All of our sessions are delivered by experienced teachers, outdoor practitioners and ex-military instructors who are great at helping people of all abilities to conquer their fears and reach new heights. Our aim is to ensure that every student learns something positive about themselves and others; we want everyone to leave at the end of the session feeling empowered and proud.

If you book something and want to do more when you get here then that’s no problem –  you can upgrade onsite by buying additional ‘Adventure Tokens’ at £5 per activity.


The instructors are amazing and so encouraging when you have those occasional ‘I can’t do this’ moments! There are lots of them which means their organisation is second to none, safety is paramount and all this for a fantastically great value price! I didn’t know this place existed but I’ll be spreading the word, Thank you Challenge Academy!

Staff were first class, very patient and helpful. Safety is no1 priority but this doesn’t detract from the fun. Totally recommend this for something that the whole family can do together – it’s great for the kids to see Mommy and Daddy more scared than they are! Well done guys!

Thank you to all the staff for a brilliant fun educational day! It gave our pupils with less confidence a chance to shine and our pupils with confidence an extra challenge. The teamwork involved has encouraged our pupils to support each other not only during physical activities but also during class lessons. We will definitely be returning during the summer as one of our invaluable ‘Sports Experience’ programmes.
