The Old School centre is the original Robinwood centre where it all started 20 years ago! One of the highlights for children of a visit to the Old School is a trip up to Orchan Rocks; a pile of natural boulders that is perfect for children to wriggle under and through. We also have an ‘Alien Conspiracy’ session taking place on the moors above the centre. These activity sessions mean that the Old School Centre offers the most authentic outdoor experience using natural resources. The centre accommodates 75 children, and is the smallest of the Robinwood Centres, so has a really homely and friendly feel.
The Old School has outstanding indoor provision for challenging high activities such as Trapeze, Crate Challenge and Climbing, and an indoor archery area, enabling activities to take place all year round.
