The Towers Education Centre

The Towers Residential Outdoor Education Centre is a key part of the council's provision for Outdoor and Environmental Education. The centre was officially opened in April 1961 and since has been extended to offer facilities for people with mobility problems.

Outdoor activities

The outdoor activities are led by experienced and fully qualified teacher/instructors who live in North Wales, supported by accompanying school staff who provide overnight supervision. The instructional staff are all qualified teachers, are all first aid qualified, hold appropriate national governing body awards and have an extensive local knowledge of the area. The programmes are flexible and respond to the specific identified needs of the participants and any requirements of the National Curriculum.

Regular inspections

The centre is regularly inspected and licensed by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority to conduct its activities.
