Hengistbury Head outdoor Education Centre


Schools Activities

At Hengistbury Head, we will work with you to create the perfect visit.

We can come to you to arrange your trip, or you can come to the Centre for a pre-visit. This will allow us to plan your excursion down to the last detail so that it works perfectly with your individual needs as a school or group.

Hengistbury Head Outdoor Education Centre is inspected and accredited by the AALA and the RYA. We have a Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge and a Hampshire County Council accreditation. In addition, we offer the following:

Short, one-off sessions

Perfect for team building and group dynamics, these sessions include any of our activities.

Multi-activity weeks

These are a great value alternative to a residential break away, and offer many of the same opportunities. You can create your own activity week selecting from our range of activities.

Half-day sessions

These sessions can be booked giving students the opportunity to progress at a particular sport, or try a number of different activities. The ideal addition to your school-based activity week, activity days give students the opportunity to try a number of different activities in a day.

Climbing Wall

Our climbing wall can be booked with our fully-qualified instructors to run the activity, leaving teachers free to work with other students. The 7.5 metre wall offers challenges for all abilities.
