Welcome to Oxenwood Outdoor Education Centre

For over 50 years we have been providing tailor-made outdoor learning experiences, for schools and youth groups.

In 2019 to ensure we could continue to provide the benefits of outdoor education for future generations of young people, we became part of local charity Community First.

We now provide a wide range of on site and off site, day, multi-day and residential experiences.

Our site nestles in the heart of Wiltshire’s, North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, steeped in interesting history, geography and wildlife. Nearby we have excellent access to local places of interest such as the Kennet and Avon CanalCrofton Beam Engine pumping station, Wilton Windmill and Stonehenge

We have a small team of dedicated instructors who focus on groups learning and safety. Striving to provide an environment which helps young people to develop their core skills, from building their self-esteem, to effective communication and recognising their individual personal strengths.

Our activities are centred around teamwork and communication. Building resilience and giving young people the opportunity to set their own measurable goals and celebrate their achievements.

All of our outdoor education programmes are made bespoke to meet groups needs, learning objectives and outcomes. Our activities range from outdoor adventure to environmental and historical theme days, encompassing Leadership, PSHE History and Literacy topics.

Our intimate residential accommodation can cater for up to 38 group members and 8 group leaders. With a fully equipped catering kitchen, full toilet and shower facilities, including disabled access facilities, a main hall, staff room, playing field and fully equipped classroom. Groups staying with us, can select from fully catered, part catered and self catering options.

If you are looking for a small, dedicated, outdoor education provider, who will not be beaten on price or quality of delivery please do get in contact to start designing a programme for your group with our team.
