We have undertaken a range of external accreditation processes in support of our mission of…

“Using outdoor experiences, special places and adventures to inspire real learning, discovery and development”.

We believe that the four schemes outlined below will help to enable wide participation by young people and adults in quality outdoor experiences, and provide reassurance for customers that the centre’s systems have been externally verified.

Adventure Activities Licensing Authority

Adventure Activities Licensing Authority ensures that activity providers follow good safety management practices. Our current license (No: L11866/R0740) is valid until 20th January 2017 and covers the following activities:

  • Hill Walking and Mountaineering
  • Rock Climbing
  • Abseiling
  • Caving
  • Mine Exploration
  • Open Canoeing (inland and sheltered tidal water)
  • Off Road Cycling

For information regarding our delivery of non-licenseable activities please see the provider forms below.

You can find out more information about AALA licensing on the AALA website.

Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge

The LOtC Quality Badge is the nationally recognised indicator of good quality educational provision. Our current Quality Badge is valid until 13th March 2018.

Provider Form

Many local authorities require providers of educational experiences to complete a provider form to assure that they meet required safety standards and policies.  Please download a copy of the completed provider form for Thornbridge Outdoors.
