Adventure, inspiration and learning - Path Hill Outdoors                   

Path Hill Outdoors offers exciting, innovative experiences for young people; focusing on learning in the outdoors

We work with young people who find mainstream education challenging and need a different approach to re-engage in learning. We also work effectively with young people who are autistic, experience anxiety or have attachment issues. Younger children come to Path Hill as part of a transition to their next educational placement. Our older students are mentored and supported while preparing for post 16 pathways.

Our programmes:

  • Suitable for ages 5 to post 16
  • Student led learning using the outdoors
  • Small group intervention programmes
  • Primary and secondary curriculum enhancement
  • Offer practical skills, physical activity, cooking, adventures and more…

During the school holidays we run fun activity days, family camps and residential camps

Some of our clientele include: Young carers, bereavement charities and hospice groups

Path Hill is a ‘not for profit’ Path Hill Outdoors and runs from a converted farm building and is located in beautiful beech woodlands on the Hardwick Estate close to Pangbourne.
