SCHOLARS AND SERVANTS
Could you handle being a child attending a boarding school in Victorian times? Could you handle being a child WORKING at a boarding school in Victorian times? Discover the stories of two very different childhoods existing side by side here at Ushaw. See if you can communicate without breaking your strict code of silence, practice your Latin, create and award your own Ushaw prize medal and have a go at Cat; the unique Ushaw sport.
MOUNTAINEERING IN DURHAM
Explore the legacy of one of Ushaw's most famous students; the mountaineer Joe Tasker. Take part in practical experiments to learn how the Himalayas were formed, stave off altitude sickness, map a mountain range and finally face your fears on the slopes of Everest.
"It was amazing to learn new things like Latin, music and about Handball and Cat."
"I loved every second of it."
"There are so many places to explore at Ushaw College. It is so great."
Ushaw has a long tradition of embracing the outdoors and the grounds have been used for hundreds of years for agriculture, sport, and traditional games unique to the college. We are delighted to announce our new partnerships with outdoor activity providers, Sc.out.ed and OASES, and to open our grounds up for pupils to experience and explore.
To book a full or half day session with OASES please contact the OASES team at firstname.lastname@example.org or
