Adventure Service Challenge
Adventure Service Challenge is a structured UK national scheme of activities for young people aged from 8 to 14+ years.
The Adventure Service Challenge scheme was founded in the back streets of a run-down area of Marylebone, in the heart of London, in 1960.
The voluntary programme in the school is designed to complement the existing curriculum and make learning even more exciting and adventurous for the children. The Adventure Service Challenge Scheme, otherwise known as the ASC Scheme, will compliment the School’s activity programme.
Adventure Service Challenge will offer pupils in Key Stage Two (Year 5-6) the chance to partake in activities that are the forerunner to the Duke of Edinburgh Award. The structured programme is designed to broaden horizons, providing adventure, service and challenge beyond the classroom. Life skills such as commitment, perseverance and team work will be covered as well as tackling key areas such as basic first aid, personal safety and fostering a sense of adventure, strategic awareness, resilience, creativity and curiosity.
Many of the sessions will be held during lunch or after school from 3:15 pm until 4:15 pm across the term and many of the current clubs and activities that pupils are involved in can be used towards the ASC award. In order to complete each stage pupils will be expected to attend certain additional sessions.
