Introducing the Climbing Gym

It’s with great excitement that we officially open our Climbing Gym in 2021, the idea was
conceived in 2019 and since then we have worked hard to make this dream a reality. Climbing at
the school was born out of the Outdoor Club and driven by a small group of pupils, it has been
through their passion that we have arrived at this stage and see the sport taking a foothold in
the new facility. The Gym consists of 3 bouldering walls and a Moon board with just over 120
square meters of total climbing space.

The centre piece of the gym is certainly the Moon Board, which is a state-of-the-art wall that
uses Bluetooth and LED lighting to plot a climber’s route. It is a universal board and has over 40
000 routes that can be climbed, this will allow our pupils to train and compete on an
international level.
