Outdoor Pursuits

At KEHS, girls enjoy a challenging, varied programme of Outdoor Pursuits designed to boost their physical and mental wellbeing as well as being great fun!. On these trips girls (and staff!) learn new things about themselves and their friends, particularly when encountering adverse weather conditions! All discover hidden talents and build their self-confidence, developing resilience and teamwork skills on demanding expeditions, while creating memories that last a lifetime.

Many girls choose to tackle the Duke of Edinburgh’s Scheme’s Bronze and Silver Awards in the Middle School, graduating to the Gold Award in the Sixth Form. Heads of Year and Form Tutors usually accompany girls on the year-specific trips, to help them work well as a group and build the loyalty and cooperation that will enhance their relationships with one another. There are many other enjoyable, and exciting trips organised for each age group, complementing this programme.
