Days for schools
We offer a broad and exciting range of outdoor and environmental educational activities for Key Stages 2. All our programmes support a creative curriculum to inspire and engage pupils. The habitats and landscape surrounding our learning centres and fieldwork localities across the Peak District National Park provide a stimulating back drop to learning and adventures.
What teachers say about us:
"LOVED IT!!! Great memories and it was magical watching the children be free". St Winifred's RC Primary, Peak District Challenge
"High quality staff, delivering high quality education and enjoyment! Nothing was too much for them. A special thank you on behalf of the children and myself. A great time was had by all". Stella Maris School, Inspired by the Wild & Dales Discovery
We strive to make our visits accessible to all. Days can be tailored to your group’s needs. While many of our sites are accessible to people with limited mobility, it is recommended to discuss your particular needs with us before booking.
We hold the Learning Outside the Classroom quality badge, certificate number R2QB103464
