A countryside education at Mount Kelly allow pupils to think, grow, explore and develop in the space, beauty and richness of the natural environment, whilst still preparing them to operate successfully in the modern and more urban global environment.
We are ideally located to run extra-curricular activities such as Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, adventurous training, CCF and Forest School. Programmes such as these develop pupils self-confidence, team working skills, self-esteem and motivation to learn.
