East Barnby

Located on the edge of the North York Moors and close to Yorkshire’s Heritage Coast East Barnby is ideally situated to provide a wide range of courses in stunning natural surroundings. Within 20 minutes of the Centre you could be mountain biking on the moors, scrambling up a beck or exploring the seashore.

The UKs greatest outdoor classroom

Our experienced teachers and tutors are crucial to the way in which we work. We aim to provide a differentiated programme, negotiated before your visit, which will provide active and inspirational learning opportunities for all who attend the Centre or use our Outreach facilities.

Our aim is to provide you with a first class experience, whether it’s a first time field studies residential or expedition training. We endeavor to provide opportunities that are full of learning, adventure and challenge, but flexible enough to take into account the weather and the needs of the group.

In recognition of our high quality teaching and learning we have been awarded the Quality mark by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom and the coveted ‘Gold Standard’ by the Association of Heads of Outdoor Education Centres.

Take time to browse through the website, then ring or email us with any questions. We are always willing to come and visit you to provide input at parents meetings or for you to come and visit us yourself.

Comfortable Accommodation

We take pride in being able to offer comfortable accommodation, wholesome food and modern facilities for large and small groups.  Our large grounds and meeting rooms provide plenty of opportunity at the end of the day to either relax or get physical outside.

We love visiting East Barnby. It is an Outdoor Education Centre and that is what you get, real outdoor experiences. These can’t be artificially created. The Children gain so much from the experience and we wouldn’t do it any differently.

Michael Syddall School

The residential has by far exceeded my expectations. The activities were perfect for the age group and staff were fantastic at engaging the young people. The best I have seen in many years of residentials!
