Secondary Groups

At Lledr Hall we can provide bespoke outdoor education residential courses for secondary schools. We provide bespoke courses for all abilities and liaise with you to design a programme that will meet the needs of every member of your group. We make sure that all courses and activities are planned to be progressive to offer different levels of challenge appropriate to your group. We are constantly monitoring progress to ensure that each pupil is engaged at a level that matches their own abilities and development.

We can design a course that supports subjects in school such as the Outdoor and Adventurous Activities Module in PE, a team building course for peer mentors or a course to promote confidence amongst quieter pupils. Programmes are designed to promote personal skills such as independence, confidence, perseverance and leadership, as well as developing social skills such as teamwork, communication, cooperation and support.

We embrace activities and experiences which are adventurous, involve physical activity and always respect the natural environment. All the activities can be adapted to suit Key Stage 3 & 4 pupils. Please see our activities page for more information about the range of activities we can provide.

As qualified teachers we have up to date knowledge of the curriculum and how Outdoor Learning can support school work. We have a clear focus on raising standards, utilising a range of learning approaches that are unique to Lledr Hall. We will make links back to your priorities such as raising underachievement or increasing self-esteem with less confident children. We understand the need to show impact and are happy to write reports and provide evidence for stakeholders such as Governing bodies and parents.

Lledr Hall is located in Snowdonia National Park. We are surrounded by beautiful countryside with rivers, mountains and woodland on our doorstep. We can therefore provide sessions with links to curriculum subjects, for example:

  • Geography fieldwork
  • Geomorphological processes
  • Map reading and orienteering
  • Weather & the water cycle
  • Problem solving and teamwork
  • PSE
  • Outdoor and Adventurous Activities module of Key Stage 3 & 4 PE
  • Activities for GCSE PE

These sessions can be stand alone, designed into a specific course or as part of one of our outdoor activity sessions. We regularly include cross curricular links in our activity sessions, providing real life experiences that will support work when you get back to school. We take students out of their comfort zone developing confidence and put them in situations of perceived social and physical risk to develop an understanding of danger and consequence.

At Lledr Hall our main aims are always a combination of fun and learning in an outdoor context, with safety as a priority. We are licensed by AALS and all our staff hold the appropriate National Governing Body Qualification for each activity.

Our focus is not just activity taster sessions. We deliver high quality outdoor education that is personal, appropriate and inspiring. We follow nationally recognised publications of good practice such as High Quality Outdoor Education and Ofsted's Outdoor Education: Aspects of good practice. We have been awarded the AHOEC gold standard. As a Centre displaying the Gold Standard logo you can be assured of a safe and quality outdoor experience and are also accredited to both the LOtC Quality Badge and for Adventuremark. This gives further reassurance of the quality and safety of your course at Lledr Hall.
