Climbing is a unique and incredible way build confidenceThis is true for any adult, but can be particularly impactful for children. It inspires exploration of comfort zones rewarded with a strong sense of achievement and pride, and it teaches children to trust in themselves and in their classmates. That’s why at Green Spider, we’ve developed dedicated indoor climbing sessions for schools to get involved with, and now the chance to book as part of one of our themed Confidence-Building Climbing Days to take part in an active session from our inspiring team of instructors.

Take a look at some “climbing for confidence” feedback and stats from students who have taken part in confidence building sessions with us. You can also find testimonials from Schools at the bottom of this page.

Covid-19 Safety and Your School’s Climbing Session

At Green Spider, we take Covid safety very seriously. All of our staff members and instructors wear masks and test twice a week. We have a maximum capacity, so the centre is never crowded, and have a rigorous cleaning schedule of high contact surfaces. For more information about what we’re doing to remain Covid-Secure, see our ‘Back to Climbing’ page on our website. 

For our Schools’ Day sessions, we have scheduled in a half hour break in between each session to completely disinfect and clean the equipment that’s been used during the session. Please note that all participants over the age of 11 will need to be wearing masks when not climbing unless they have a medical exemption. 

When else can my School Visit? 

If you can’t make it on the 10th June, we can also offer other dates or arrange a regular monthly confidence building day if you’d like your class to return for a series of sessions. Or, if you’d just like to get your kids climbing, we always have instructors available to teach them all they need to know to become confident, experienced climbers. Take a look at our School & Youth Group page for more details about what we can do for you!

Child climbing in Superhero Costume at Green Spider's Schools' Day

“The children really enjoyed the session; with all of them saying only positive things and that they would like to go back again!

It was greatly confidence building, in particular for two of our students: one who got to the top with the support of others shouting them on (this student often feels isolated so it was nice to feel support from peers) and for another who couldn’t get up the wall to start off with, managed over the session to climb to half way and in doing so built huge amounts of confidence!

We would 100% take part again. We felt the session ran smoothly and the instructors were brilliant with the children.

Holmer Academy 

Our children loved the session and came away feeling they had achieved something.

Some of our students particularly benefited from the problem solving activity, it took them out of their comfort zone, having to mix with others and talk things through. They were petrified at the thought of doing it with other children but succeeded in completing the task.

We would definitely take part again.

Stretton Sugwas Academy

“All of our children thoroughly enjoyed the sessions, with all of them benefitting in their different ways, some challenging themselves more than others.

We would definitely be interested in attending any sessions in the future.
