School days with a difference at Hollingworth Lake
Learning need not take place solely within educational buildings. The outdoor environment has a massive potential for learning. We are extremely fortunate to have such rich urban and rural environments on our doorstep and our children and young people’s learning experiences can be enhanced by maximising the potential of the outdoors. We are keen to see all our children and young people having positive learning experiences in a variety of settings.
Learning outdoors can be enjoyable, creative, challenging and adventurous, it helps children and young people learn by experience. They grow as confident and responsible citizens who value the spectacular landscapes, natural heritage and culture Rochdale has to offer.More information
School Swim Academy
We believe that every child in Rochdale should have the opportunity to learn to swim in primary school.
The main aim of the School Swim Academy is that every child will be safe and confident in the water and achieve Key Stage 2 standard prior to leaving primary school.

We know that many children and young people want to stay active outside of school. There are activities in all Your venues for children and young people to stay active, creative and healthy.
