Outdoor Education

We are very proud of our extensive outdoor education programme at Isca Academy and the number of students that are inspired to challenge themselves and their team mates to achieve considerable outcomes every year.
Our activites include:

Ten Tors
Multiple teams of our students take part in this event every year hiking 35, 45, or 55 mile routes across Dartmoor over 2 days. Each year around 35 students take part in teams of 6. The training is tough and requires true determination, but the rewards are golden.

Duke of Edinburgh Award
Isca Academy is a Duke of Edinburgh awarding centre and offers training for Bronze and Silver Awards for ages 14+. These are achieved through a personal programme of volunteering, skill, physical challenge and Expedition. All students have the opportunity to complete the Bronze award during Year 9.
