Make the grade with this nationally recognised climbing award scheme. Aimed at older children keen to develop climbing skills and knowledge in educational sessions that help achieve personal growth and progression, this course fulfils the physical activity requirements for Duke of Edinburgh and GSCE PE individual sport.

NICAS (National Indoor Climbing Award Schemes) are UK wide schemes designed to promote climbing development and accredit individual achievement on artificial climbing structures.

There are various Levels to NICAS which provide the structure and motivation for new climbers to develop their skills in order that they may gain the most out of their climbing as well as having their achievements recognised.

During these sessions parents are not required to stay as the children will be fully supervised by Warehouse instructors.
