Outdoor learning has been taking place at our site since the 1960s. With such a deep rooted connection to education and a staff team with a combined experience of more than 150 years delivering high quality outdoor learning you can be assured of a visit that will exceed your expectations.
Our range of activities are ideal for teachers who are looking for an introductory activity or a progressive developmental programme for their students. Each of our activities can be linked to the National Curriculum and will be planned in partnership with you.
Whatever your request we will endeavour to meet your requirements to the best of our abilities. LOPC has a reputation of working with users to provide activities tailor made to their specific needs.
Whether you’re looking to visit us for one day, want to arrange a multi activity week, or would like a series of progressive sessions, Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre can cater for your needs and provide high quality outdoor learning at an affordable cost.
Richard Pell, Head of P.E. Abington High School
The kids had a great time and I definitely think it was an enriched learning experience. I was extremely impressed with the welcome we felt and the quality of instruction given.
Here at Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre, we pride ourselves in providing relevant learning opportunities that allow your pupils to engage in national curriculum content through outdoor learning.
We regularly provide curriculum linked activity sessions to school groups, and our staff have a wealth of experience working with pupils of varying abilities from 5 years upwards.
Usually activities last for 90 minutes. However for some activities we can run a longer or shorter session depending on your requirements. Session times include safety and activity briefings, fitting of relevant clothing and equipment and the activity time itself. Sessions will conclude with a short review of what has been learnt and a discussion on transfer of learning.
There are no minimum numbers for any of the sessions but we do have maximum numbers we will accommodate in a group - usually 10 or 12. Many of our activities have capacity for multiple groups to participate at the same time but some activities do have restrictions.

A popular option for visiting groups is to use our camping facilities on-site to extend your stay. You can bring your own tents or rent ours (which includes them being put up for you) and there are various options for the facilities you may need such as a kitchen, rooms inside or a camp fire area.
