We were very impressed by Bowles' ethos and approach to young people's social and adventure education. Instructors delivery was very strong, with one member of staff reporting that these were '... the best instructors I had ever seen' Specifically, they have a policy of setting one instructor to each group for the entire trip. This contributed towards to building team rapport and putting young people at ease. (August 2018 - Primary & Secondary - Post No: 5908 )
