After School Clubs

Our After School Clubs are weekly or monthly sessions with our brilliant instructors. From 1 to 1.5 hours long, they enable your pupils to try all types of climbing, including bouldering and roped climbing to give them a taste of everything. Within these sessions we will go through different techniques and skills that your pupils can learn to become the best climbers they can be.

Within the after school clubs we can offer NIBAS (National Indoor Bouldering Award Scheme) for children aged 7+ years for an extra one-off payment of £10. Level 1 and 2 can easily be achieved over a full term, with many students gaining certificates rapidly. This award is recognised nationally across many climbing centres.

We also offer food & refreshments on request.

For Cavendish Primary in West Didsbury we provide a weekly after school climbing club. We collect & return the students, a spread of ages from year 1-6, every Thursday during term time. This has proved to be incredibly popular, resulting in a waiting list for each term.DSCN2712

Our Educational Service

Here at Rock Over Climbing we believe that enjoying yourself should be your number one priority – this includes pupils and teachers alike. But we know how important it is to ensure that school and pupil premium money is spent effectively where it matters.

We provide indoor climbing and outdoor fun and learning for all ages from nursery children upwards. As a team we have vast experience working in schools and other settings.

Would you like to see how your children come alive when they are building a den in your school grounds or learning about science whilst making a fire and cooking simple recipes? Or learning how to work as a team or to reward pupils with a session at our indoor climbing centre?

However, we also know that OFSTED inspections and framework can be a hard match for all pupils to respond to, so our services can also help in closing the gap between pupils, especially with those struggling to engage with mainstream education or for children who have SEND.

What ever is your need please contact us and we are more than happy to come to you or have you and your teachers come for a visit and experience our amazing facility.
