Schools and non profit organisations

DURATION (any) - MAXIMUM RATIO 1:8 - from £50.00

Creation is established as a firm favourite with school bookings. We work very closely with the local councils and have taught over 12,000 individual students in the last three years.

Why should we choose climbing as a sport?

There are huge benefits to climbing - teaching children responsibility and safety, overcoming fear and the self-achievement and personal satisfaction attained by climbing to the top of our walls.

The school climbing sessions are designed to be motivating and fun, but also educational.

How do the bookings work?

Over the past year, Creation has tailored training packages for schools for entire terms. These packages include a complete syllabus that regular students can work through. It shows them all the basics required to start climbing, the safety issued involved, and then works through a carefully crafted programme to help the group work together as a team and reach their goals.

We can offer complete courses based upon the NICAS scheme, or GCSE climbing syllabus for AQA, EDEXCEL or OCR. We also offer one-off sessions for climbing, abseiling, caving, and End of Term Rewards!

We come from a special needs school. Is climbing suitable?

We often cater for groups with specific requirements. Special needs organisations come in and climb every week, and we provide regular sessions for schools with special needs or behavioural difficulties. If you are unsure, give us a call on 0121 449 8000 to speak with our reception team.

How do the sessions run?

Our instructors work on a maximum ratio of 1:8, though be-spoke ratio numbers can be arranged if necessary. The group will not only climb the roped routes, but enjoy bouldering on our low level walls with safety mats.

How much does it cost?

Our rates for school groups are:

£50* per instructor for the first hour
£20* per instructor for every consecutive hour.

That's a one hour session with a fully qualified instructor and all the safety equipment required for just £6.25, or two hours for just £8.75 per person, if you have a full group of 8 people per instructor.

Group sessions are invoiced based on your requirements, either fully in advance, or after each session. Just let us know how your budget is allocated and we will accommodate your needs.

We will try to accommodate your wishes as closely as possible. To avoid disappointment please contact the centre as soon as possible to arrange your booking.

What’s your cancellation policy?

Cancellation Policy : We rota our instructors hours up to a month in advance, therefore if you have booked an instructor and you don't turn up then we still have to pay that instructor for their time. To this end we require a minimum of 48 hours to move or cancel a booking. If we are not notified of a change to the requested instructors before this period, then we reserve the right to charge for the agreed number of instructors at the time of booking. No show groups without notification will be charged as normal.
