5 reasons to try… Lee Valley Regional Park

30 Second Briefing

Lee Valley Regional Park’s Learning and Engagement team deliver a diverse range of outdoor learning sessions to help schools, SEN and community groups.

These sessions help all who attend to engage with biodiversity, habitats and history as well as developing their own wellbeing while being active in a 10,000-acre classroom.

1. A 10,000-acre outdoor classroom 

Lee Valley Regional Park is a 26-mile-long park running through Hertfordshire, Essex and London – and that means a 10,000-acre green-space classroom! We deliver sessions at different sites up and down the park so each group can choose the best location and activity for them. 

2. A huge range of diverse topics 

Choose from geography, history, design, mindfulness and more! Our team cover a range of topics that link to the National Curriculum for KS1–4 and SEN groups as well as community groups.

Our programmes range from forest schools to discovery days covering habitats, the Stone Age, mindfulness and natural art.


3. Working as a team 

Alongside our outdoor learning programmes, we have great team-building sessions using our permanent orienteering course in the park. These sessions are perfect for secondary school children and above.  

4. Quality, experience and peace of mind 

Our qualified, DBS-checked education team hold accreditations such as the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge and APIOL. We offer a safe environment for all, with a focus on high quality risk management, so you can book with peace of mind. 

Our staff are trained in Makaton and hold Level 3 Forest School Leader awards, so you know you’re getting the best outdoor education experience. We’ll take care of everything, from managing your booking and checking what you need the session to deliver and adapting it where necessary, to supplying any kit needed.

5. Nurture their curiosity with nature 

Bring learning to life for your students! Our sessions empower children to develop their own learning and understanding of the natural world and mindfulness.

They’ll be in the moment and see nature, habitats and history up close, from meanders to minibeasts, orienteering to London 2012 legacy venues, and seeds to Stone Age tools. 

Discover how Lee Valley’s unique 10,000-acre classroom can engage your students! Visit www.visitleevalley.org.uk/outdoor-learning for more information and to book.
