We are delighted to be able to share with you the kit list for the Outward Bound visit.
Please read this post carefully. Then click on the link at the bottom of the page to see the full kit list.
Some important things to note from the kit list:
Students will need to bring a packed lunch with them on Tuesday 31st August.
The first meal provided by the centre is the evening meal on the Tuesday. We will eat our packed lunches when we get off the coach after arrival at the centre.
Students need to bring a £10 refundable deposit.
We will collect these deposits on the morning of Tuesday 31st August when you drop off you son or daughter.
Crew deposits are pooled together. Any equipment that is damaged due to misuse is covered by the combined crew deposit. We will use this as an opportunity to teach our crews joint responsibility. We expect all crews to act in a way that means they will have their deposit returned to them.
Clothing will get wet and muddy.
There is no need to go out and buy lots of new clothes for the residential. Every course involves water and outdoor adventure. You should choose clothes that you don’t mind your son or daughter getting dirty.
Socks are very, very important.
The centre provide all specialist kit such as walking boots etc. However it is important that the students have a few pairs of thick socks. They do not necessarily need to be specialist walking socks. However it is important that your son or daughter has some thick pairs to help prevent blisters.

Please contact us if any of the items on here are going to be an issue for you to have in place for your son or daughter.
