Prep Schools: Years 3-8

Helping prep schools develop initiative, teamwork and leadership

Why Arena?

With over thirty years' experience, Arena has developed a wide range of outdoor activities that are ideal for the ages of 6 years and above. These range from a simple obstacle course through to various team activities and woodland-based adventure games. Not only are they fun, but they develop initiative, teamwork and leadership skills away from the restrictions of the classroom.

An Arena event can help to fulfil various Key Stage 2 requirements, including Physical Education as well as covering Personal, Social and Health Education (PHSE) and Citizenship.

Reasons for a school/form outing to Arena:

  • Induction day for new intake to the school
  • Weekend activities for boarders
  • Activity Day
  • Prefect/Monitor selection
  • After exam celebration
  • Helping to fulfil various educational requirements including Geography
  • Leavers' event
