  1. Nick Drake

    As an outdoor leader, I am always looking for innovative ideas to complement our existing Outdoor Education programme. Combining the Survival School Level 1 course with our existing modules has enabled us to deliver a comprehensive curriculum to our children. Ray is both hugely knowledgeable and flexible when covering the modules which makes us book the course on a yearly basis. The children are now well prepared for the Level 2 next year.
