26th November 2019 — Bolton School and Patterdale Hall, its outdoor adventure learning centre based in the Lake District, is now a supporting partner of AdventureSmart.UK. In backing this new initiative, the school aims to encourage people to make good choices as they head off on outdoor adventures. The project asks three questions: do I have the right gear, do I know what the weather will be like and am I confident I have the knowledge and skills for the day?

Tim Taylor, Patterdale Hall Manager, is right behind the campaign: “AdventureSmart.UK is all about providing the essential information needed for people to get outdoors, confident that they have prepared for a great day and thereby reducing the number of avoidable incidents which the rescue and emergency services have to deal with.

“We introduce hundreds of students to outdoor adventures each year as one of the most active and adventurous independent schools. In the coming week we are overseeing a Gold DofE practice walking expedition, a Silver DofE qualifying walk and a Y7 curriculum outdoor programme as well as hosting and delivering programmes for the National Citizenship Service and a primary school. Boys and girls from Bolton School will also take part in kayaking, sailing, mountain biking, bouldering and climbing clubs.”
