Following a very successful trial with West Heslerton Primary School we are really excited to be able to offer our after school Explorer Clubs to any school that is interested in a different experience for their pupils for lunchtime and after school clubs.
We can offer clubs covering natural history, geology fossils, archaeology and much more, all the details and costs can be found here. At present these clubs are aimed at schools wanting to run them, the next steps will be firstly to have the clubs accedited by the Childrens University and then we are looking at running the clubs as holiday clubs for children in 2016.
The last word goes to Rachel Wells, headteacher at West Heslerton Primary School about the club we ran for them:
Hidden Horizons ran a series of fantastic outdoor education PE sessions or our school. This after school club was run using our PE funding and proved very popular: sessions were regularly extremely well attended.
Each week was clearly planned around pupil interests and feedback, were well organised with each one having a clear educational focus. Will was highly knowledgeable and formed great relationships with pupils of all ages.
Pupils were keen to take part and didn’t realise the extent they were walking or the range of physical activities they were engaging with. Highly recommended for all aged pupils, particularly those for who don’t always enjoy traditional sporting activities.
Footnote…West Heslerton have just booked another 16 sessions for 2016, so we must have done something right!
