All the children were able to challenge themselves and gain from the experience.

Team work was a big focus throughout the trip and this is something the children struggled with at times, but they learnt how to develop these skills throughout their time at Mount Cook.

Fantastic Derbyshire location with so much to do!

Our centre is a short drive away from Carsington reservoir, where groups can raft build or canoe whilst taking in the wildlife. We’re also a 5-minute walk from Black Rocks, a famous climbing area where schools can learn new skills on a real rock face. Plus, we’re just up the road from Chatsworth House and Alton Towers, if you wanted to include an excursion within your trip. The options are endless for a secondary school residential full of culture.
