Primary Schools: Years 3-6

Helping primary schools develop initiative, teamwork and leadership

Why Arena?

With over thirty years' experience, Arena has developed a wide range of outdoor activities that are ideal for the ages of 6 years and above. These range from a simple obstacle course through to various team activities and woodland-based adventure games. Not only are they fun, but they develop initiative, teamwork and leadership skills away from the restrictions of the classroom.

An Arena event can help to fulfil various Key Stage 2 requirements, including Physical Education as well as covering Personal, Social and Health Education (PHSE) and Citizenship.

Reasons for a school/form outing to Arena:

  • End of Term/Leavers Party
  • Activity Day
  • After Key Stage 2 exam celebration
  • Team Building
  • Outdoor adventure activities (OAA PE Curriculum)

On site we have the following available for use:

  • Changing rooms and toilets
  • A large undercover Barbecue/Picnic area which schools are welcome to use by arrangement. All we ask is that staff/parents/guardians ensure that this area is kept tidy and all rubbish is taken away. We provide recycling facilities on site for CLEAN plastic (Nos 1, 2 & 3 ONLY), glass and paper
  • Free tea/coffee facilities for staff
  • Fresh drinking water for all
