Exploring the great outdoors

Out of the classroom and into the outdoors, pupils and young people can make the most of group activities at West Leeds Activity Centre.

From climbing the high ropes together, and competing as a team across the assault course, they will start to build confidence and grow in their abilities and team working.

Our instructors are all fully trained and are used to working with a wide range of abilities and ages and knowing how to get the very best out of them.

Our site is completely secure so young people can complete some activities in small groups by themselves, such as our nature trail or orienteering. All our instructors are qualified professionals and are used to working with a wide range of abilities and ages and getting the very best out of pupils and young people.
