WHY NEWQUAY ACTIVITY CENTRE?
Newquay Activity Centre is perfectly located in the centre of the surf capital of the UK – Newquay! We are just a short walk to either Towan or Fistral beach, meaning we can have the pick of the conditions on any given day. We are suitably placed to provide beginner, intermediate or experienced lessons to school pupils of all ages and abilities.
Our state of the art HQ has everything your school group needs for an enjoyable day of ocean activities. We are equipped with male & female toilets, heated changing rooms, hot outdoor showers, safety lockers for valuables and storage for clothes and bags. We understand the importance of time in the water after learning something new, that’s why we also boast a well-stocked hire centre for any consolidation your students may wish to do after their day of outdoor activities.
Once the school day ends, and with prior approval from teachers, pupils are welcome to meet their parents at our HQ’s hire centre. This will allow them to extend their day of ocean fun and continue their learning experience. During your school activity day out, we will provide all of the necessary equipment for the appropriate season, we also have on-site classrooms for any theory work during the session.
INDUSTRY-LEADING SURF COACHES
All of our surf coaches are either ISA (International Surfing Association) or Surfing England qualified and also experienced beach lifeguards. Many have years of international professional and personal experience having surfed and coached at beaches in the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Indonesia.
TEAM BUILDING FUN AND EXHILARATING COMPETITION
With our Schools Surf Survivor experience, we’ve devised a unique set of lifesaving and coast guarding activities that play out on the breathtaking beaches of Newquay. Combining flag and fitness games with mock rescue scenarios, our Surf Survivor experience will challenge your class physically and mentally on some of Cornwall’s best surf beaches!
This is the perfect activity for all ages and there’s no better way to test your abilities than jumping in a wetsuit, getting sandy and problem-solving in the sea.
COASTEERING TAILORED TO STUDENTS
During our Schools Eco Coasteer, your students will be negotiating Newquay’s Gazzle (Cornish word for ‘armpit’ – the school lessons start now!) route with our highly qualified coasteering leaders. Pupils will be guided through caves, rapids and sluices that all provide delicate and unusual ecosystems. Local wildlife is abundant along this route. Pupils will witness a variety of species including inquisitive grey seals, rare kittiwake gulls and, if the timing is right, even bottlenose dolphins!
BESPOKE LESSONS FOR YOUR CURRICULUM
Our school adventure activities can be geared to feature current curriculum topics and learning goals. From science, maths, English language and literature, to personal development, social skills, self-confidence, motivational skills and physical development. Speak to our team about how we can arrange outdoor learning for your school group upon booking.
