IMPACT OF THE PROGRAMME
Research shows that learning at Ufton Adventure
has developed children’s interpersonal skills,
ability to self-actualise and resilience. It has both
physical and mental health benefits, achieved
from learning to take better control of their own
Being chosen for a programme at Ufton Adventure
means going on a transformational journey.
Children develop their social confidence to
persevere in adversity, the resilience to strive for
success and the aspiration to become the best
version of themselves.
“It is the repetition at Ufton
Adventure that is so important.
Repeated exposure to positive
learning outcomes with staff who
are committed to their success
embeds learning and brings
about lasting changes in
behaviour and self-esteem”
This has been achieved through having a clear
progressive framework for our programmes,
applying relevant theories, educating children
to embed learning about personal skills and
successful attitudes, delivery in an outdoor
setting and working closely with schools to ensure
that learning experiences are built upon in the
classroom. Working in collaboration with our
partner schools has meant that Ufton delivers
repeated learning experiences which bring about
meaningful and lasting behavioural change.
ENRICHING LIVES AT
From the moment the children arrive and put
their bags away they are taken into a story
from which they did not emerge until they
leave us. Based in our Tudor manor house, we
deliver dynamic and exciting history education
encouraging children to immerse themselves in
the primary school history curriculum from the
Greeks, Tudors, Vikings, Saxons, Romans, Tudors
to World War I and II.
Ufton History experiences develop so much more
than just an understanding of how life was lived
in the past. We use history to teach children
analytical and problem solving skills, for example,
we give children artefacts and ask them to handle
them and work out what they were used for.
History can seem a daunting subject to some with
a large number of facts to learn. The approach
adopted at Ufton Court makes history come alive.
Education at Ufton is memorable. The enquiry
approach enables children to construct a coherent
account of what has happened historically, and
then apply their new knowledge appropriately.
