Beaumanor Park Education Centre

Beaumanor Activities is an Outdoor Education Centre like no other.

Operating from a majestic Victorian Manor House in the Leicestershire countryside. We offer activities for everyone. We work with schools both locally, around Leicestershire, and nationally offering both day visits and residential stays. Programmes have been created to link in with many stages of the National Curriculum from EYFS to Key stage 3 and beyond regularly working with Universities and trainee teacher programmes and youth groups. We have residential accommodation for up to 120 guest in buildings and additional 60-80 in a tented village during the summer.

We have two sides to our centre. There is the side of 'Traditional' Outdoor Adventurous Activities that many may be familiar with and then we have the side we term Explorations. Both side have programmes which span across the different key stages from EYFS to Key Stage 3 and beyond.
