Why Benmore?

At Sciennes, we passionately believe that residential outdoor learning is an invaluable educational experience for our young people. With high adult to pupil ratios, the week provides a safe and inclusive opportunity for intensive mentoring and coaching, encouraging everyone to tackle new challenges and develop greater self confidence and independence. It is a powerful means to build teamwork and foster skills for life, learning and work, firmly establishing bonds throughout the year group.

Below are videos about the activities on offer at Benmore. Each group will undertake a SELECTION of these activities, with one session in the week commonly arranged to be an option, negotiated with the group.
