Key Stage 3 & 4

Enhance team and personal development skills in an environment that is stimulating, challenging and fun. Our courses can help prepare young people for that important next step of their development.  Whether it's a transition to a new school or preparing for their GCSE's.

Learning and development is key on all our courses. We use activities as a medium to help young people grow and develop in an environment that is safe and where they feel well supported.  Inspiring locations, plus inspirational Skern staff will ensure that learning gained from their residential is reflected upon and taken back into the classroom. Helping to broaden their horizons and increasing their motivation and appetite for learning.
