The Palmer Academy works closely with Ufton Court  to raise the aspiration and attainment identified pupils through outdoor learning in woodland cabins and grounds. Through repeated residential visits and day visits, the young people that visit Ufton Adventure develop skills to meet the challenges they face at home and in school, returning as more successful learners.

They help children immerse themselves in activities, helping them to:

  • Develop a positive attitude to change, challenge and choice
  • Aim high
  • Be prepared for the challenges of the 21st century
  • Spend more time outdoors
  • Build and develop positive relationships
  • Manage anxiety and depression
  • Manage physical health – diet, sleep and exercise
  • Increase appetite and enjoyment for learning
  • Develop skills to become work ready
