Outdoor Education

At Hunter Hall Primary School Penrith, we are constantly looking to better ourselves and allow the children to develop into all round individuals be their talents lie in academic, sporting, creative or the great outdoors!

Outdoor Education is a timetabled lesson taking place each week for all year groups. Living in such beautiful surroundings the children at Hunter Hall are in the enviable position of being able to take full advantage of their setting. Camp craft and bush craft activities are on the menu for our younger pupils – (we even have our own forest!) whilst our older children have the experience of orienteering, mountaineering, fell walking, cycling and sailing on beautiful Ullswater over the course of the year.

Fresh air and open space is so important to a healthy mind and body and by combining a mixture of academic and practical activities for the children we believe we have the best of both worlds. Children work hard and play hard at Hunter Hall

Do you have any spares?

We would like to continue building our bank of spare items so that we don’t have to make difficult decisions about whether a child is appropriately equipped and clothed to head into the outdoors, for example. If you have any old or spare hats and gloves that you are willing to donate we would be very grateful. Other items that would also be useful include waterproofs, small rucksacks or walking shoes / boots.
