What will students see and do?

Visit Whitlingham Adventure to explore an exciting range of water and land-based activities that will engage students in outdoor learning. The activity centre works together with schools to offer educational trips where pupils are encouraged to learn new skills.

Located in Whitlingham Country Park between the River Yare and Whitlingham Little Broad, the centre is run by Norfolk County Council. Visiting students will immerse themselves in outdoor play, with games and activities including stand-up paddleboarding, sailing and kayaking.

Archery, climbing walls and bouldering are also included. These games and activities are designed to enhance National Curriculum science, maths and geography lessons.

Learning outside the classroom is known to boost students’ health, wellbeing and independence while reducing behaviour problems.
