Ten children will abandon their smartphones and disconnect from the internet during the toughest two weeks of their lives, as adventurer Bear Grylls teaches them how to survive in the wild.

The international hit TV show Bear Grylls’ Survivor School takes the youngsters, who come from diverse backgrounds, on the ultimate school trip as the survival expert challenges them to get off the sofa and head into the wild for an epic adventure.

For two action-packed weeks they will live in the remote hills of Wales alongside their tutor, one of the planet’s best survivalists.

There they will learn how to forage, make fire and build shelters as they camp in extreme locations while Bear sets life-defining tasks to test their limits and remote cameras capture the realities of wilderness life.

Bear Grylls’ Survival School begins on Discovery Family HD, on OSN, on Wednesday, September 14 at 4pm.
