SEN Alternative Provision

about Point Blank Adventures

We are proud to offer a unique alternative provision in a beautiful woodland location in Buckinghamshire for children aged 7 to 16 with Special Educational Needs who find accessing a school environment challenging.

At PBA, young people are given the opportunity to develop their social skills, confidence, and self-esteem. Our setting contributes to improved physical and mental health and overall well-being, naturally providing a therapeutic environment. Our young people are encouraged to develop their interests and gain a sense of purpose and belonging in a self-directed, low-demand, nurturing and fun environment. Learning is nature-inspired, experiential, and informal and occurs organically within our flexible and bespoke programme.

Our programme

What we offer and how it supports the young people’s needs:

Bushcraft skills:

Whittling, den and shelter building, cooking, butchery, and survival skills:

Supports fine motor skills, concentration, problem-solving, and nutrition. Group bushcraft activities encourage teamwork and collaboration to achieve common goals.

Physical activities:

Ninja assault course, swing, hammock, scramble net, slackline, tree stump steppingstones, woodland and countryside walks, tree climbing, zip wire swing:

Built into the day to support sensory, emotional regulation and proprioception needs.

The environment:

Wildlife, streams, nature walks, understanding seasons and conservation:

Being in nature promotes an understanding and appreciation of the environment. It encourages mindfulness, reduces stress, and promotes mental well-being.

Target Sports:

Archery, shooting and axe-throwing:

This is an opportunity to learn and develop skills that support coordination, concentration, turn-taking, teamwork, and following instructions, rules, and safety procedures. Engaging in target sports promotes responsible and safe equipment handling, promoting a sense of safety awareness.


Small and large projects, individual and or whole camp projects:

Develops practical skills, communication skills, sense of achievement, problem-solving, fine and gross motor skills and creativity. It encourages a love for learning and provides a foundation for various life skills.

At PBA, thorough safety measures and the correct training are crucial in all target sports and bushcraft activities to ensure our young people enjoy the benefits while remaining safe.
