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.

Hollingworth Lake Adventure & Water Activity Centre is fully accredited and licensed. We have exceptional staff that interact and engage with learners encouraging them to participate in our offer of both land and water based activities.

Our programme is designed to enhance the students learning experience and personal development. In everything we offer, we aim to support the National Curriculum.

We have three exciting packages to help inspire you and your class to enjoy a meaningful and motivational school trip with us.

• Lesson plans to use before and after your visit ensuring you get the most educational value out of your trip
