Taking the curriculum out of the classroom
The Great Big Tree Climbing Co. works with schools to offer an exciting new mobile form of adventure for your pupils. Tree climbing gives young people the chance to develop mental and physical skills, build confidence, work as a team and most importantly have fun.
We also have experience of working with children with both physical and learning disabilities.
We can offer an alternative approach to aspects of your curriculum, teaching your pupils to solve problems and experience risk management in a safe and fun environment.

“Thanks for a great afternoon of climbing. The boys had an excellent time for the second year running. Tree climbing fits in well with our Outdoor Pursuits programme and appeals to pupils of all ages at Ludgrove.

“The boys adored the day. Swinging from the trees, whizzing down an aerial runway – they were in heaven. The instructors kept the boys busy all the time, if they were not up a tree or down an aerial runway, they were doing another activity. Boys who thought they would never be able to make it up the tree came down succeeding with broad grins on their faces and have been talking about it ever since. We have them booking in for next term already!”
Amy Dawson – Sunningdale School
Health and Safety
Safety is paramount. All climbers are supplied with harnesses and helmets and have a full safety briefing and clear instructions on how to ascend the tree before setting off.
We can have up to 8 lines running up into a tree at one time, with highly trained instructors on hand to ensure the climbings have the best experience.
Anyone can climb – as long as they are in good health.
