Skern Lodge

Education and adventure provider, Inspiring Learning, has invested in a new outdoor centre to increase the number of children it can provide for.

The provider has invested in Skern Lodge in Appledore, North Devon to improve the existing facilities and introduce new activities for pupils.

Skern Lodge: What’s new?

Skern Lodge is an outdoor activity and development training centre. Situated on the outskirts of a quiet, coastal village, the centre is set in 22 acres of grounds with tidal waters and the Atlantic surf on its doorstep. 

From abseiling and zip wires, off road bikes and orienteering to surfing, kayaking and powerboating, many schools all over the country experience a range of adventure, education and development training programmes.

Inspiring Learning will bring investment to Skern Lodge to improve its existing facilities and introduce new and exciting activity and development training options. 

It will welcome future schools work in partnership to bring the great residential experiences to even more pupils.

Skern Lodge joins Inspiring Learning’s portfolio which also includes Kingswood and Camp Beaumont, to name a few.
