Essex School Team Building

Students across all Key Stages (KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4 & KS5) have taken part in one of our Essex School Team Building Days. We offer our full range of activities to both Primary & Secondary Schools throughout the county. Our team building days are perfect for transition days and drop down days, to name a few!

Team Building For EYFS - KS5

The instructors at The Problem Solving Company pay yearly visits to many schools throughout Essex. It has therefore been important for us to build up a large repertoire of team building activities. This is to avoid any repetition of the challenges participated in. Our aim is to deliver a different selection of challenges to each year group. This then allows us to offer fresh exercises, when we work with that cohort the following year. 

Choose below the type of school you are looking to run activities in within Essex.

Mobile Team Building Activities

When compared with taking a group of students offsite, bringing in The Problem Solving Company to schools in Essex’s villages, towns and cities will be a considerably cheaper alternative. With a huge range of mobile team building activities the team will arrive early, setup and be ready for the bell at the start of the day. Our well trained instructor team will run a fun and educational day without the red tape of a day visit to an activity centre.


The Problem Solving Company are constantly travelling the UK visiting Primary & Secondary Schools,  Sixth Form Centres and Colleges. We even visit Universities. We don’t just visit the big towns and cities. 

Here is some of the places we visit in Essex:

Basildon, Billericay, Braintree, Brentwood, Brightlingsea, Burnham-on-Crouch, Canvey Island, Coggeshall, Colchester, Corringham, Dovercourt, Epping, Frinton and Walton, Grays, Great Dunmow, Halstead, Harlow, Harwich, Leigh-on-Sea, Loughton, Maldon, Manningtree, Ongar, Rayleigh, Rochford, Saffron Walden, South Woodham Ferrers, Southend-on-Sea, Southminster, Thaxted. Waltham Abbey, West Mersea, West Tilbury, Witham, Wivenhoe

Our Activities

The Problem Solving Company has been visiting schools for 14 years. What was once a small offering has grown considerably. We add new and exciting activities year after year. As well as Maths Workshops we offer a comprehensive range of Escape Room activities for numerous curriculum subjects. We have a variety of Team Building based days. A popular choice are our Instructor Led Days which are suitable for all years from EYFS – KS5. If you are looking for a cheaper option a wise choice is our Challenge Carousel for Secondary Students or our Adventure Squad for Primary Pupils.

Team Building Equipment

For the 14 years that we have running team building events at schools we have prided ourselves on the equipment that we use. We never wanted to be the company that unwisely turned up at school with sub standard equipment. Instead, we have invested in manufacturing our own designs. Now, as well as using our team building kits to run our activity days, we are the leading supplier of these activity sets to schools.

Indoor & Outdoor Activity Days

As we are strong believers in the benefits of outdoor education, we would always prefer to run our activities on a school field or playground if possible. We do however appreciate that the weather in the UK is not the most reliable. We are well versed at facilitating our team building activities inside drama studios,  sports halls,  gyms and classrooms. This allows us to run events all year round in Essex.

G&T Activities

The Problem Solving Company is the perfect match if you are looking for Gifted & Talented activities for your students. Working in teams the students will be asked to interpret activity briefs and then apply their different skill sets, to think of solutions for the challenges. Our instructors are well briefed, informative and helpful. However they will not just jump in with a solution which can so often disillusion Gifted & Talented learners. Our Mobile School Team Building Days & STEM Workshops are a great fit for such days and one the students will remember for years to come.
