What will students see and do?
West View Project was founded in 1980 by several Hartlepool residents. It was established to offer somewhere safe and enjoyable for children to explore. The organisation now welcomes schools to visit.
Children will have a chance to learn outside the classroom, meet personal development goals, and have fun while doing it!
West View Project offers an exciting Forest School programme where themed days around popular stories take place.
In addition to Forest School, West View Project also offers Beach School at the Hartlepool coast. Beach School allows kids to take learning into their own hands by problem-solving, learning new skills and exploring an exciting environment.
Right next to the beach is Hartlepool Marina. West View Project offers exciting activities here such as canoeing, kayaking and raft building.
Archery is another engaging activity on offer which will teach children coordination, patience, and self-motivation. West Point View is happy to come to your school to run classes but can also accommodate certain groups at its own facility.
Also on offer is team building, orienteering, camping and navigation training. West View Project offers flexibility in its programmes and activities and is happy to adapt its programmes for those with special needs or for small groups.
Teaching resources provided
A trip into the outdoors can inspire a multitude of lesson ideas that are linked to the national curriculum. West View Project recognises this and can provide handouts, booklets and materials that will help you and your school implement and expand on the lessons that the students learn during the trip.
Additionally, if West View Project comes to you, it will provide all the materials required to complete a lesson. This can include worksheets, food for tasting, archery materials, and much more.
West View Project also provides various worksheets linked to the environment.
The ethos is that every child matters and that trips can be adapted to the needs of individuals.
Minimum and maximum group size
West View Project is happy to accommodate small and large groups. However, water activities are limited by age groups and venue capacity.
