We challenge and inspire
every child

If you’re looking for a meaningful residential experience that your pupils will never forget then Brathay is the place to be.

Not only does Brathay Hall offer an unrivalled Lake District setting on the shores of Windermere with acres of open space and woodlands for exploring and having fun, but your groups will also benefit from the guidance and support of our inspirational outdoor learning instructors.

Our ‘challenge by choice’ approach allows every pupil to take on new experiences in a positive and memorable way and our instructors will make a point of working alongside your own staff as they observe their pupils grow in self-confidence, participate in effective teamwork, and gain from daily reflection and self-evaluation.

The focus of all our residentials is wellbeing – providing new and challenging experiences to youngsters in a safe, supportive environment that will stretch them without intimidating them and ultimately make them feel good about themselves.

We will work with you beforehand to discuss the most appropriate activities for your group and will always offer different options for different weather.

We provide a place where children are equal and where existing hierarchies, barriers and tensions are broken down. It’s the same on our charity programmes which your residential will help to fund.

We work with young people, families, employers and employees, to enhance wellbeing and create long-lasting personal change.
