Lake District and North West School Trips

Looking for Lake District School Trip Ideas, want to plan an adventure activity or field school trip, why not take your school or educational group to the Lake district in and around Lake Windermere. This location makes for a fabulous school trip venue, as it’s the largest Natural Lake in England. It provides school groups with a natural setting, where they can learn about the environment while also enjoying a number of outdoor adventurous activities on and off the water.

What’s great about the Lake District is that it’s perfect for outdoor pursuits, geography field trips or environmental studies. Lake Windermere also provides students with a wide variety of water-based activities. There are a number of outdoor/residential activity centres located on Lake Windermere that offer a large array of water sports. Whether you want to go canoeing or paddle boarding, there’s a water-based activity for every student, regardless of physical ability. Activities at the Lake District are inclusive, ensuring that all students can get involved and have fun. And after taking part in these activities, students will come away having developed several critical skills. From teamwork and co-operation, to leadership and communication, water sports encourage pupils to improve on these essential life skills.

But the Lake District does not only provide educational groups with adventurous activities. Students can also explore various aspects of the curriculum, such as geography and environmental studies. The varied landscapes provide pupils with excellent areas of study, where school groups can study the curriculum outside of the classroom.
