What our Schools say…

In the past 8 years I have brought over 2000 boys and girls from Warden Park Academy to the Ardingly activity centre which is set in the beautiful location of the Ardingly reservoir. All these students experienced a great day of water sport fun and learning as they all did sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and raft building and racing, as well as develop important skills such as team work, perseverance and resilience. Every year these year 7 students rate this day as the best one they experienced during their enrichment week, and it comes top by a mile, as one student wrote this year;

‘The ultimate activity for me, has to be Ardingly! It was great fun- I got the chance to have another go at two activities I have already done (Kayaking and rafting), but also to try out new water sports, (Sailing and Windsurfing ). I enjoyed sailing so much, that I now want to go for a sailing session and try it out again!’

I would highly recommend this centre to anyone as the staff are very professional, knowledgeably, helpful and their organisation is excellent. I have already booked again for next year.
