Home Education

Join our Home Ed Junior climbing club

We run regular Home Education group sessions at Alter Rock Climbing Gym and Activity Centre, Derby.
Children and young people can have a variety of adventurous experiences in the safety and comfort of our centre. Climbing promotes teamwork, confidence, communication skills and it is fun! They can gain a recognised climbing qualification too, and as well as climbing we have the new Air Walk challenge and the Labyrinth Cave system.


Come along to our Wednesday afternoon Home Ed Club and you can socialise with other home educated kids and parents, and benefit from special group rates. Our regular Home Educated children come from Derby, Nottingham, Belper and further afield.

You can choose either a Pay-As-You-Go general session or a six-week course leading to the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS) qualification.

Sessions run every Wednesday for 1.5 hours, 12 to 1.30pm.

Prices:  £10 each time for general instruction, £60 for the six week NICAS course including Log book and nationally recognised certificates for each level achieved.
If your child just wants to come along for a general session, they can go climbing, bouldering, or try the new Air Walk and our Labyrinth Cave Challenge.

No need to worry about the weather outside in Derby!
All equipment and instruction is provided.
Booking required, 1 week in advance.
Ages: 7-17 years
