Herd Farm Activity Centre, which is situated near Harewood Estate in Leeds, is set in 16 acres of countryside surrounded by farmland and woods and offers a range of outdoor and adventurous activities which we are confident the children will love.
Herd Farm have a great team of skilled and experienced activity staff who deliver a programme of outdoor activity for our children. The children have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities such as high ropes, BMX biking and an assault course. The activities are great for building confidence, developing team work skills, developing new skills and improving their problem solving skills to name but a few.
Below you will find more information about the residential including information about the cost and ways to pay, the types of activities the children take part in and finally there is a section with answers to questions we are frequently asked by parents. If you have any other queries regarding the residential, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
We are aware that the cost of the residential is significant at approximately £108 but we believe it is great value for money as provides the children with a wonderful opportunity to experience outdoor and adventurous activities in a safe and fun environment.
We always aim to give parents and carers a year to pay and we are very flexible about when the payments are made. We can create a payment plan to suit each family so the cost becomes manageable. Payments can be made monthly, quarterly, a one off payment or in any other way that suits you either using ParentPay or by sending cash or a cheque to the school office. We give full details at a meeting we hold for parents several months prior to the trip.
The children have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities at Herd Farm. We choose a selection of activities that challenge the children in different ways and provide opportunities for the children to work collaboratively as part of a team.
