Bringing education outdoors 

We know that learning can successfully extend beyond the classroom walls and into the great outdoors! When done effectively, learning outside of the classroom transfers into a wealth of life skills, and changes in attitudes and behaviors. 

Primary Schools

Our Centre provides a safe, friendly environment where children have the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, try out new activities, and develop their self confidence away from home. We tailor your class's activity day or residential specifically to your learning objectives and aims.  

Resources for Teachers

We have created a page specifically for you! Here, you can download a selection of resources and materials which will make the organisation of your residential or activity day a lot easier. These planning tools will help you make the most of your Mount Cook experience! 

Secondary Schools

We are dedicated to providing unique and challenging experiences which will broaden the horizons of your pupils. Our activities help young people to discover new opportunities, expand their appetite for learning, develop key skills and increase attainment. 

Winter Residentials

We believe that when it comes to outdoor pursuits there is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing! Winter residentials can provide an enriching experience which positively impacts teachers and pupils for the rest of the academic year. Take a look at our exclusive winter offers!
