We at Fore/adventure believe in the amazing power of taking children out of the classroom and into the GREAT OUTDOORS! In line with curriculum targets, children can develop their personal, social and educational learning outside within safe and stimulating environments. From foraging, fishing, bush craft, beach school, wild food exploration, coasteering, kayaking and snorkelling, we have it all here ready for you from our unique location in Studland. Working with KS3 to build foundational social and academic skills and with KS4 to meet educational targets, Fore/adventure offer activities that are unique in both experience and attainment. All of the below activities are suitably applicable to meet the targets set within your physical education, science, english, art and design and geography subjects and can also be adapted to fulfil further subjects requirements. In addition the guaranteed acquired skills from all of our activities make our courses well suited to team building and transition work between key stages, year groups and schools as well as to inclusive groups and those with SEN.
