At IFS we believe outdoor education is a vital avenue through which to teach self reliance, team-building and leadership skills while enhancing and developing health and wellbeing, a spirit for adventure, respect for nature and safe risk taking. As such, all our students participate in at least one overnight outdoor excursion per year. The nature and duration of these trips will vary depending on the year group and their specific needs. The cost of these excursions is built into our fee structure and no additional cost is required of parents.
In addition, we provide the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and encourage and facilitate any students from year 9 upwards to participate. This fantastic program allows young people to create their own unique project that’s all about personal achievement.
