Description

As one of the most inspiring education and adventure centres in Europe, a visit to our new Dearne Valley centre provides a unique ‘learning outside the classroom’ experience with space to study and grow and a chance to explore the natural world. Young people have the perfect opportunity to push the boundaries here – with the added advantage of the very latest high-tech facilities.

Kingswood offers a complete educational and adventure activity programme for young people across the UK and around the world; an experience that aids personal development, teaches key life-skills and helps build confidence and self-belief.

With stimulating environments, state of the-art facilities and highly qualified instructors, we can work with you to go beyond classroom teaching and textbook theory. Accelerated learning by doing and the ultimate adventure activity experience; a chance to enhance education, put theory into practice and encourage independence, self-awareness and teamwork every day.

Formerly the Earth Centre, one of the millennium commission projects, Dearne Valley opened its doors as the new Kingswood centre in 2012. Following a multi-million pound investment programme, Dearne Valley is our most environmentally sustainable centre, complete with one of Europe’s largest solar panels and an on-site waste recycling plant.
