Kench Hill offers a wide range of exciting and inspirational outdoor activity based day visits for local schools, home school groups and community group day visits. All activities are linked to the National curriculum and are taught with a cross-curricular learner led approach. On booking, a member of our tutor team will arrange a meeting with your class teacher or group leader to plan the day’s activity timetable, identify learning intentions and build a bespoke activity timetable tailored to your group’s objectives and needs.
