Description

Archery in school is the perfect inclusive activity, offering opportunities for all pupils to succeed. We take the pressure off teachers with a fully accessible activity that is directly relevant to the National Curriculum.

Curriculum Focus

Archery is an ideal addition to the PE curriculum with clearly measurable outcomes. Over a series of sessions, students can develop their skills and demonstrate responsibility for their individual performances. Our progressive coaching helps students to develop their concentration and patience as well as fundamental balance and co-ordination skills.

In addition to the PE curriculum, archery fits well into key stage 1 and 2 themed terms. Bring ‘Medieval Lives’, ‘Castles’ or ‘The Normans’ to life with a practical experience of this ancient skill. We can even perform practical science experiments, demonstrating concepts such as forces and angles, directly relevant to the key stage 2 science curriculum.

Archery in school for pupil enrichment

Archery works well as an enrichment day activity and we’re often asked to bring our range to student induction days. It’s non-threatening, achievable and plenty of fun. Our qualified and experienced staff include teachers and former social workers so we know how to support and motivate hard to reach pupils. Most participants experience success within a few turns, boosting self esteem and helping to develop a growth mindset.

Our location

We’re based in the Wye Valley, not far from Cardiff and South Wales, Bristol, Gloucester and the West Midlands but we travel widely throughout South Wales, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire to bring our archery range to schools. Our prices depend on location, group size and duration of the activity, so please contact us for a no-obligation discussion and quote.
