Cost: £160 SC.OUT.ED / £5 per child Ushaw
SC.OUT.ED, working in partnership with Ushaw, deliver exciting & adventurous days in the amazing grounds surrounding the main house. Ushaw has a long tradition of embracing the outdoors and the grounds have been used for 100s of years for sports particular to the college.
Due to the adventurous nature of the activities and encouraging children to become more active, Sports Premium Funding can be used to access this programme.
All activities are delivered by qualified staff.
‘Cat’ is a sport unique to Ushaw. Played on a circular ring, like baseball.
‘Battledore’ is like squash. It is played against high three sided courts of the outer walls and the object is simply to hit a shot that your opponent cannot return.
‘Handball’ is played in small cave-like spaces, set back into the outer walls.. It is, again, rather like squash but with the addition of being able to hit the ball off the ceiling too. Played with large thick gloves rather than a racquet.
