Primary schools

The history of Lea GreenLea Green caters for children of all ages and abilities and we welcome groups for reception-age taster days right up to year 6 transition trips.

Working with you, we will create a bespoke programme for your group, combining adventurous activities, sports and games with personal development opportunities to achieve your desired learning outcomes and most of all – get active and have fun!

Our courses challenge children, build their confidence and give them a sense of adventure, whilst improving their team work, communication and physical awareness skills.

Personal development is the key outcome that teachers tell us they want from their trip, and every part of Lea Green – from the responsibility given for tidy bedrooms and the family style dining service, to the challenges and opportunities presented during activities – is geared towards this.

Primary schools at Lea Green CentreAll our instructors come from teaching or youth work backgrounds and are experienced in relating activities and challenges to life in school and at home.  Curriculum-based courses can be developed with you, and we will work on particular outcomes or learning topics as requested.

A trip to Lea Green can be whatever you want it to be – a chance for a teacher to build relationships and set the scene for learning with a new class, a ‘reward’ for the end of the school term, or an opportunity to work on a classroom topic – the choice is yours.

Residential trips

Have you ever thought about a residential visit for your class or group?
We offer a wide range of programmes for personal development aimed at giving young people a chance to grow.

If you are looking at a residential trip for the first time, we can help answer questions you may have, for example: Why should you consider a residential? How could it support your curriculum? What will a typical day involve?

We will discuss what you are looking to achieve, the age group you work with and what sort of activities may be suitable, before putting together a tailor made programme for your stay.

For many of our primary school groups, this is the first time that children have stayed away from home and they find Lea Green a warm and welcoming ‘home from home’. 

With meals served ‘family style’ in our beautiful dining room, cosy bedrooms and a caring and experienced staff, residential trips to Lea Green can give children experiences and memories that will last forever.

Day visits

Many primary schools opt for day visits as an initial introduction to outdoor education.  With complete flexibility in designing your programme, we can make sure your students get the most out of their day. 

As well as tailored programmes for school groups, we can offer inset days and team building days for teaching staff and programmes for groups or individuals within mainstream groups with additional needs.
