The treetop climbing and activity organisation offers plenty for school groups including forest school learning packs and curriculum linked resources.

The Go Forest School resource provides an activity sheet for teachers to download and use for their own forest schooling classes and during a visit to one of Go Ape’s centres.

The resource suggests activities to partake in, including leaf art, tree-ology, shelter building and minibeast hunting. Children can use the resources to record their findings. 

Besides this, Go Ape also provides a number of other curriculum linked resources for Key Stages 1 to 4, tying in with Science, Geography, English, Maths and PSHE. These resources can be used during a visit.

Resources include Go Create Myths and Legends, Go Explore Adaptation and Evolution, Go Investigate Shape and Space, Go Discuss Anti-Bullying, Go Explore Physics, Go Discover Environmental Geography. 

What else is there for schools?

Primary schools can benefit from special discounts and there’s something for Secondary schools too, as their adventures allow them to take more control and have more responsibility.

For teachers, there are downloadable school packs which include everything you need to organise the trip, including risk assessments and consent forms.

Go Ape is accessible for those with disabilities and can cater for pupils with learning disabilities.
