Kettering Old Grammar School

Govilon Activity Centre

The Govilon Activity Centre is a non-profit making Outdoor Education Centre in the Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales

Outdoor activities for young people

The Foundation has for many years operated the Govilon Activity Centre in South Wales - an outdoor activity centre that offers residential courses for young people from schools within the Borough of Kettering.

The range of experiences offered by the Centre includes climbing, canoeing, walking, nature studies and a visit to a coal mine museum. The effect of bonding young people from the same form in school is considered to be invaluable. In some cases it may be the first time a youngster has ever stayed away from home.

Management and supervision

The Centre is heavily subsidised by the Foundation, and is run through a Management Committee that includes Directors and others who are interested in this important work. The substantial regulation requirements are monitored carefully, and the activity centre itself is managed locally by our operations manager, marketing manager and administations manager, together with qualified instructors.
