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.

The centre provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It sleeps up to sixty guests in dormitory style bedrooms and groups also have access to a games room, a classroom, television and DVDs. Fully qualified instructors help the pupils to enjoy themselves at Patterdale and to get the most out of their time there. They supervise all the activities, offering them appropriate challenges and giving them a real sense of adventure.

Apart from providing an ideal location for physical activities, the Hall is also a popular destination for short Study Courses. For instance, our A Level German students have often spent a weekend there, practising their language skills in delightful surroundings.
