At Teesside High School, we believe the opportunity to engage in adventurous activity in the outdoors is fundamental to developing our young people in every way imaginable.
Improving quality of life through better health, fitness and movement is the most basic of expectation from this type of activity, but it is proven to run so much deeper. Building confidence and trust in peers through activities which promote physical and mental challenge in a range of environments, our Outdoor Education programme demands perseverance and determination, problem-solving and decision-making as well as independence and resilience.
Along with personal growth, outdoor and adventurous activities encourage a social awareness and responsibility for our environment. We believe in growing global citizens who are aware of the need for sustainability in the use of our natural resources. Spending time in stunning landscapes both in this country and further afield enriches this awareness, broadening horizons and influencing our young people way beyond the years they spend at THS.
