School Groups

At Whitby Surf School one of our greatest achievements is the educational and therapy work we have been able to provide, both through our School sessions and our work with The Wave Project. We’re passionate and dedicated to teaching the next generation about how rewarding and thrilling surf sports can be, and how to stay safe when they’re in the sea. That’s why we offer a variety of school packages, so you can find the most suitable experience for your students.

We cater to all and offer fully accessible lessons, so if students have been before or it’s their first time in the waves, they’ll be guaranteed a lively and entertaining surf session.

Looking to give your students the full surf experience, complete with beach safety organisation and two epic sessions in the sea? Why not book the full day package? Bring lunch and enjoy being in the beach environment with the waves only a few sandy footprints away. 

Whitby is an idyllic destination for a school trip, once you have finished your surf lesson why not spend the rest of the afternoon taking in the beach sights? Or treating students to a seaside ice-cream and walk along our historic pier? If you have any questions about the other tourist attractions Whitby has to offer, we’d be more than happy to offer suggestions for before or after your session with us.

We don’t think there’s any better way to finish the school year than a big day out on Whitby Beach, with surfing activities that will build confidence and create unforgettable memories.

We understand that all schools have different requirements, and so are happy to discuss any queries you might have about our surf activities. If there is anything you are interested in, would like to know more about, or want to book your place, do not hesitate to get in touch below.

What you need to know

There are a few things we would recommend students bring for their day on the beach:

  • A drink to stay hydrated (and if you’re here for the full day, lots of snacks and some lunch)
  • Sun cream and sun-protection lip balm, which should be reapplied after being in the sea.
  • Sunglasses, through the summer we get some very sunny and bright days on the North East Coast.
  • A towel and appropriate swimwear.
  • Warm clothes to put on after your session.
  • Medication (e.g. Inhalers / EpiPens).

We value safety as our number 1 priority, so ask that all students can swim 25m before coming for a day out to Whitby Surf School. Once you’re here we’ll give everyone a full beachside safety briefing and beach coaching before going in the sea. We also have consent forms that will need filling out by parents before your session with us.

Whitby Beach is patrolled by an experienced RNLI lifeguard team through May until September, and all our instructors are fully qualified, DBS checked and very experienced in the sea so you can guarantee a safe and relaxed atmosphere for your trip.

A single lesson for a school usually lasts 90 minutes - 2 hours and all teachers and staff go free. All activity equipment is also included in the price, so you can turn up hassle free and just have fun!
