Outdoor Pursuits

Patterdale Hall is our own outdoor pursuits centre in the Lake District. Located in idyllic surroundings at the southern end of Lake Ullswater, the estate contains a working hill farm and a hundred acres of garden and private woodland.

It is the ideal location for field studies, Duke of Edinburgh Award expeditions, and multi-activity programmes for Junior and Senior School pupils. Here, pupils can enjoy orienteering, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, archery, gorge walking, a ropes adventure course, rock climbing and abseiling.

All pupils from Y4 upwards spend 3 full days each year at the centre partaking in a range of activities.

I like Patterdale Hall because when you get there it is welcoming and there are fun activities.
