John and Elspeth Mason are both qualified teachers with a life time of delivering outdoor education and adventure to all ages.
Mere Mountains Education is set up to provide the support you need to run your school programme. We are happy to provide advice based on our experience but every school has it’s own unique ethos and we believe that a outdoor residential should support this rather than be just a menu of activities.
We are committed to providing quality experiences at affordable prices to enable as many children as possible to experience the joy of learning and growing in the outdoors. Mere Mountains will provide the local knowledge, the technical equipment and the safety cover in a wide range of learning environments. Working in partnership with classroon teachers enables us to provide the tailored expereinces that go beyond what can be offered by any single fixed site OEC but at an affordable rate. With no large infrastructure to maintain, all the children's money is spent on delivering the programme. Much of our non educational work is with corporate groups and we are able to support the organisations overheads without adding them to the eduation course prices.
We use several accommodation bases mainly around Windermere and Consiton but also further afield if required. There are hostels with catering, self-catering units and bunkhouses or village halls. We can also help support school camps with large tents, dining facilites and basic cooking. We have a wide variety of activity session resources in addition to the natural environment to help deliver the programme whereever you need it. Resources include a fleet of kayaks, sit on tops and canoes, raft building kit, a 7m high mobile climbing tower, archery , orienteering, tyrolean, initiative, and bushcraft equipment. We have tutors who can deliver a range of outdoor education, environmental and adventure sessions.
