Over the course of a child’s time at The Elms, she/he will have the opportunity to attend our residential teambuilding and outdoor activity courses. We use the expertise of OUTPOSTS. Specialising in active educational programmes for over 20 years, Outposts provide courses on Bush Craft and Survival, Climbing and Caving, Coracle Building and Leadership and Team Building activities. Each course is developed and designed specifically for each age group to develop essential life skills such as teamwork, leadership and communication, outside the classroom environment. As part of the Leavers' programme our School Leavers spend a week at the Bush Camp in Somerset. From there the children venture out to various locations and experience activities including coasteering, raft building, archery, air rifle shooting, command tasks and night walks. We find that the children come back to school with the bonds of friendship stengthened, much refreshed from the change of environment and challenge, together with increased resilience and determination.
