Prepare for university!

Leaving school successfully
An innovative new course for young people aged 15 – 19
June 27th – 29th; August 22nd – 25th 2016

This innovative residential course is designed for students in their final two years of high school and first year at university. It combines the rigour and excitement of learning new outdoor sports (orienteering; sailing; kayaking; climbing; surfing) with the development of independent academic skills needed to thrive at university (writing; speaking; building a body of knowledge). When learned together, students develop a strong platform for further study and the world of work.

The Programme

The course balances classroom learning and experiential learning in our wonderful wild landscape. We’ll be in woodland, on water and in the rugged hills of Donegal. Both the outdoor programme and the classroom sessions have been carefully designed to blend together for continuous learning and application of skills and knowledge.
