White Hall

Situated in a stunning location in the beautiful Peak District National Park, White Hall Outdoor Education Centre has given thousands of young people wonderful, memorable experiences of outdoor activities since it opened in 1951 as Britain's first local education authority outdoor centre for schools and groups.

White Hall is located 3 miles outside the spa town of Buxton, close to the picturesque Goyt Valley. We are ideally located to deliver a wide range of educational, challenging and adventurous activities.

Our residential adventure holidays provide the following for schools and groups:

  • experienced and highly qualified instructors
  • learning and development goals linked to the current curriculum
  • courses individually planned with you to meet your students' needs
  • outdoor activities that take you to real rock faces, reservoirs and hills
  • high quality facilities and home cooked food
  • a caring and welcoming environment
  • an inclusive price of instruction, activities and accommodation

And a lot more!

Our courses are packed full of excitement and adventure, leading to an amazing amount of learning taking place. Using outdoor activities and the residential experience, we can help young people develop in alternative ways to what they can in the school environment.

We give learning and development a real relevance, focusing on personal progress and the skills needed to work with others.
