Outdoor educational activities take place on our very own beach

Great Western, in Newquay, Cornwall

Does it get much better than outdoor learning at the beach?

Well we don't think so! The salty sea air and the crashing waves help to soothe mind and soul, leaving students feeling relaxed, calm and at ease.

Since the 1960s, the beach has been the spiritual home of surfing in Newquay and remains a surfing hotspot for local surfers today so pupils will be in the best location to learn to ride the waves and so much more!
