How can a climbing wall benefit my school?

Climbing can be a powerful part of a high-quality physical education programme. It is a stimulating activity that offers a great alternative to traditional team sports.

School climbing walls are a fantastic opportunity for your students to gain confidence and build a sense of teamwork. As well as increasing overall fitness, climbing can improve communication and problem-solving skills. 

What type of wall would be right for my school?

EP Climbing will work with you to design, produce, and install a bespoke wall that suits the needs of your school or university. You choose the discipline or style you'd like, and we'll take it from there.

  • Bouldering - solving problems on a 4m wall with safety mats below.

  • Lead / Top Rope - climbing as high as possible with the use of ropes on a 6-10m wall (or auto-belays).

  • Speed - a vertical race on a 10-15m wall, using ropes or auto-belays.

  • Traverse - climb horizontally from one side of the wall to the other, for training or simply for fun.

  • Park & Playground Boulders - resin structures adapted for the outdoors.

  • Fun Climbing - bright colours and themed challenges, suitable for younger children.
