Enabling more children to benefit from a valuable Learning Outside the Classroom experience.

Being near the M62, M1 and just off the A1, the Ledston Estate is in a prime position to attract Yorkshire schools.


This day will complement the “Learning Outside the Classroom Manifesto”, which was launched in November 2006, recognising the importance and value of learning outside the classroom for children and young people. Countryside Live provides a first class outdoor learning experience.

I hear and I forget
I see and I remember
I do and I understand

Countryside Live
The essence of outdoor learning
