Parent and teachers

Parents and teachers bringing young people to The Lock


Parents who are competent in the rope skills required to use an indoor climbing facility can supervise up to 2 novice climbers, this can include children. If children are being supervised by a parent or guardian, there is no minimum age limit at our facility.

If you are the parent of a young child and don’t have the required skills, you can either book onto a Learn To Climb course, or we can supervise them for you. We offer bespoke 1:1 climbing tuition from 5 years upwards. To enquire about Bespoke Tuition please contact us.


We offer climbing sessions for students and teachers from 7 years upwards, this can range from a one-off climbing taster through to a full bespoke GCSE climbing programme. These sessions need to be booked through The Lock Office, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
