The Rock - Climbing Tower
At King’s Norton Boys’ School, it is a key asset to enable all of our students to access various forms of outdoor activities. The benefit that students gain from the social and leisure pursuits on our outdoor education courses is long lasting and unique to the school.
At King’s Norton Boys’ School, we are very proud to be able to offer all students the opportunity to take part in the outdoor adventure programme consisting of a variety of activities during their academic year from September.
There will be an opportunity for all students to take part in a climbing session on ‘The Rock’, our privately-owned climbing tower based at the school. This will be a chance for students to challenge them selves in a different environment to help develop their confidence, team work and reliance. All students will give climbing and belaying a go, supporting their fellow students and setting personal challenges along the way. It’s not a competition, it’s all about getting outside the classroom, learning in the great outdoors in a fun safe environment.
Please see your son’s allocated date and time on the text message you had received with this link on.
The session will be for two hours starting at your allocated time, meeting at the outdoor education store room D 1.6, next to the canteen.
Students will be provided with all safety gear and full instruction. Please remember to wear a tight fitting pair of trainers and bring warm comfortable clothes for climbing in but NO TIGHT JEANS. It can be cold outside, please bring a coat and wear suitable clothing.
Students need to arrive at school in full uniform, and will be able to get changed at the beginning of their session.
To maintain this wonderful opportunity for our students, it is essential we have contributions from families. A contribution of £5 per student goes towards equipment hires costs, maintenance of equipment and repairs for all activities.
In order for your son to take part in this activity, we will need the online medical consent form (link below) submitted before his allocated date.
