Climbing courses for schools and colleges

We cater for all young people regardless of ability or special need and can deliver a range of sessions to suit all abilities and ages. Students who struggle more academically can find the hands-on approach to climbing and structured learning particularly rewarding.

The Centre

The climbing centre at Lower Grange Farm is Kent County Council approved and was purpose-built having originally been conceived for young people in Kent, by young people in Kent.  

It is an indoor facility so can be used year round and offers climbing, bouldering and abseiling.
