Bouldering Sessions for Schools

Bouldering is the perfect adventure activity to capture a group’s interest whilst also raising self-esteem, building confidence and developing problem-solving skills.

At Flashpoint Swindon, we offer a wide range of bouldering walls to challenge and engage children of all ages and abilities along with the help of our fantastic coaching team. Bouldering can also offer a stimulating alternative to conventional school sports as well as helping to fulfill National Curriculum requirements.

These sessions are for a minimum of 6 participants and maximum of 24 participants. However, further options may be available on enquiry. Groups are run at a ratio of 1:6.
