Discovery Days: Outward Bound

Discovery Days: Outward Bound

Get ready for a university adventure!

Pupils will have a go at our mountain climbing challenge on the bouldering wall. They will practise orienteering skills indoors before venturing outdoors for an orienteering expedition around campus.

Introducing the concept of university and helping children to think about their futures, our outreach officers will run sessions in school, both before and after the Discovery Day.

In partnership with the Department of Sport.
