School Curling Opportunities

Why Try Curling?

Curling is both a fun way to get active and a unique mental challenge. This traditional Scottish sport helps students:

  • Make friends
  • Learn teamwork
  • Understand strategy
  • Practice sportsmanship

“The children had a great time at curling. I think very few of them had any idea of what was involved beforehand so it has been brilliant for them to experience some new things.” – Sue Russell, Teacher, Canal View Primary School

P.E. Block

Want to join us at the rink? Why not schedule a P.E. block!

We recommend a 4-week block as a great way to get a proper feel for the game. The first session is in-school and is followed by three on-ice sessions.

1 in-school session, up to 1 hour

  • Safety information & what to wear
  • History of & introduction to the sport
  • Fun game of New Age Kurling

Up to 3 on-ice sessions, 1-2 hours each

  • Rink will provide all necessary curling equipment
  • Students only need clean trainers and warm layers
  • A member of staff / volunteer from the school must accompany students

Single Session on Ice

Can’t fit a P.E. block into your schedule? We also offer one-off Student Try Curling sessions of 2 hours in length.

The Practical Stuff


On-ice sessions are sold on a ‘cost per sheet’ basis (each sheet can accommodate up to 8 students). So if you have 1-8 participants, you’ll pay for 1 sheets of ice, or if you have 9-16 participants you’ll pay for two sheets, etc. Schools benefit from a 50% discount on our standard club ice costs.


Sessions are available on weekday afternoons. Depending upon our daily schedule we can sometimes offer flexibility with regards to your start/finish time, but please discuss with us first.


We typically host up to 16 students per session, with two qualified coaches and two sheets of ice. Students must be aged 8 or above and accompanied by a responsible adult.

Accessibility & Safety

The rink is wheelchair accessible, and we’re happy to welcome participants with mobility limitations. You must discuss any requirements with us in advance so we can make any necessary accommodations.

Our coaches have nationally-recognised coaching qualifications, a valid PVG, and have completed a Safeguarding course. Rink staff have those as well as First Aid certificates.
