Adventure play attraction Mission Out in Leeds has created four packages designed especially for Year 7 pupils to help them with their transition to secondary school.

Schools can book new packages to help their Year 7 students settle in.

The idea of these visits is to help new secondary school pupils get to know their classmates and build relationships in a safe, managed environment.

The new packages are now bookable for the next school year following a successful series of Teachers’ Days and drop-in sessions.

Each day visit has been developed by qualified primary and outdoor educational instructor, Gemma Constantine, manager of Mission Out at Tingley Garden Centre.

She said: “Our transition packages are a great way to mark the beginning of secondary school and for pupils to hone their social skills and to find like-minded, adventurous people in their class or year group.

“At Mission Out we believe in the power of epic outdoor adventure to boost confidence, foster resilience, and develop senses in a varied tactile and encompassing environment.

Pupils can face fears and grow in confidence.

“Through thrilling activities such as The High Ropes and The Tower Jump Pillow, these are designed to inspire and challenge pupils and help discover new strengths, setting the stage for a year of personal and academic growth.”

Mission Out features high ropes, water activities, a jump challenge pillow, giant swings, den-building and adventure golf among its many activities. The cost of the packages includes coach parking and certificates.

The attraction’s aim is to allow pupils to build confidence and embrace growth through fun activities and nature. They also say that its environment on-site helps pupils to develop their senses and foster resilience. 

Mission Out provides school visits for all-aged pupils to inspire them with learning outside the classroom.
