Challenger Troop works with Kings College
Kings College, which is one of the largest secondary schools in Guildford, has tasked Challenger Troop to work with their students on developing team building, problem solving and communications skills.
Miss Foakes, Alternative Learning Provision Co-Ordinator, Kings College said: “We are delighted to be on board with Challenger Troop. We were inspired by their way of working with young people to challenge and motivate them to reach their full potential and feel their military ethos and values coupled with a focus on physical fitness, leadership and motivation will provide a lasting impact on our students.
“I envisage that students are going to learn self-discipline, how to work in teams, how to resolve conflict and they will also be developing respect for themselves and each other as they go through this challenging programme.”
Keith Marden, National Project Development Director at Challenger Troop said: “Since we received further funding from the Department for Education, we have already brought in new schools and extra staff to help deliver our mission. We work with a number of schools across Kent and East Sussex and we are pleased to be bringing Challenger Troop to our first school in Guildford.”
