SAET Outdoor Adventure Learning Campaign

Severn Academies Educational Trust (SAET), located in Worcestershire, is a 'UK Exempt Charity' and a growing multi-academy-trust of seven fantastic schools at the heart of their communities. SAET Schools work together towards the common aim of delivering a world class educational experience.

We recognise the importance of academic attainment and are equally passionate about Outdoor Education. We have an ambitious vision for all our pupils to access the very best outdoor adventure learning activities. This is why we need your financial support to bring this vision to reality.

The life skills and characteristics gained through these outdoor experiences: resilience, confidence, communication, a positive attitude to challenge, teamwork and much more; prepare our pupils for life beyond the classroom and the real world of work.

SAET Family

SAET Family includes: The Stourport High School & VIth Form College, Stourport Primary Academy, Baxter College, St Bartholomew's Church of England Primary School, Hartlebury Church of England Primary School, Wilden All Saints CE Primary School and Wolverley Sebright VA Primary School.

Chris Parkes, a former Baxter student and owner of creative agency 'Surf Works', said; " Surf Works are proud to support Baxter College and SAET Schools. Outdoor Ed is just as important to me as academic tuition.  Being out of the classroom and engaging in physical activity; builds health, a strong character and helps young minds to focus, all critical to succeeding later in life. Great to see the youngsters being given a chance to get outdoors and get involved in these activities", Chris.
