Rock Starz, NICAS and GCSE Programmes


We are also extremely proud to run the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS) and award up to Level 4.  NICAS has been recognised by Edexcel, AQA and OCR as the framework of their GCSE PE syllabus and is a fantastic way to recognise progress and reward achievement.  


NICAS is available to children between ages 8 - 16 and gives a fantastic framework to log progress through the syllabus and reward achievement milestones needed for climbing responsibly and safely.  We run an induction course over 4 weeks to achieve Level 1 which includes:
• Understanding safety in climbing and bouldering
• Achieving basic climbing skills such as knot tying and communication
• Achieving a number of safe climbs and belay independently with a climbing partner 

NICAS Level 2 and 3 offer further depth and progression for climbers and focus more on climbing technique and knowledge as the scheme progresses.  These can be realistically achieved within a full term of regular attendance and our regular clubs outside term time offer a superb opportunity to enhance their learning beyond school.

Camping and Duke of Edinburgh Expeditions


We have a fantastic set up for groups and schools and welcome all DofE expeditions to stay and use our facilities.  Far Peak is very fortunate to have 25 acres fields and woodland so we can cater for over 100 pitches across the site all year round.

The site is within trekking distance of other well known stopping points and is also within safe distance of extensive walking and cycling networks that stretch across the Cotswolds. 

Pitches start at £6 per person and we provide special rates for larger groups.
