Outdoor pursuits are encouraged at Bearwood. The pursuit of academic excellence is balanced by active encouragement of the pupils’ extra-curricular involvement. The extensive grounds and lake are used for sailing, canoeing, mountain biking, camping, cross country and many other activities. Few schools can boast such a varied estate as that found at Bearwood College.
Many of the pupils take part in other supervised activities away from College at weekends during term time and in the holidays. Weekend events have included jet skiing, water-skiing, hiking, long-distance mountain biking, gliding and deep-sea fishing.
Organised expeditions to places as far afield as Kenya, Morocco, France and Canada for activities such as skiing, mountaineering and kayaking are features of College life.
We have a keen mountain marathon team which take part in annual events. Pupils in our First and Second Forms are encouraged to develop a taste for adventure. The annual Junior Adventure Week to the South Wales coast at the start of each summer holiday is firmly established.
