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.

Sports:

‘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.

Sports:

‘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.

“Experiences in the out-of-doors tend to be rich in opportunities for nurturing growth in all the developmental domains”

What People Say

A great hands-on training day – loads of new ideas and I now feel more confident to use the outdoors with children.

Kay Murray, Pelton Community Primary

A very useful CPD that delivered ideas for creative outdoor activities and experiments for science as well as cross curricular links. Thank you for a great day!

Gemma Preece, St Oswald’s

Sam has organised a number of community learning events with me. He is very organised and plans great learning experiences for adults and children.  Children and their carers raved about the cooking on the fire and the fauna identification activities in their evaluations.  I would highly recommend a Sam Jackson led event at any school.

Helen Grainger, Esh Winning Primary

Sam is a wonderful trainer.  His outdoor pursuits inspired us with a multitude of reasons to embrace all aspects of nature and outdoor life. The students attending this course were all motivated to follow in Sam’s footsteps and engage children in a variety of fun outdoor activities with children in their own settings.

Wendy Jackson, Bishop Auckland College

The session was booked to enhance the children’s imagination – it definitely delivered on this! The day was organised brilliantly and was enjojed by both children and adults….the children were asking when you were coming back for the rest of the week!
