Located just six miles outside Leeds City Centre, Lineham Farm is the perfect place for local primary schools to hold their residential breaks.

“Amazing Residential Outdoor Education Experiences”

No need for your staff to endure hours on a stuffy coach full of restless children when we have 120-acres of beautiful countryside for them to explore right on your doorstep. This fantastic educational facility has everything needed to provide 7-11 year olds with fun, adventure and learning. Plus, we can create a structured programme of activities that are linked directly to your curriculum and fit with your desired outcomes.

Schools Partnership Scheme

Connecting young people to free residential respite and keeping the costs as low as possible for the schools who are most in need.

We reach young people all with manner of needs, be these SEND, or needs linked to severe poverty and family crisis. Our focus has always been Leeds based schools from areas of challenge and disadvantage.

The charity is developing a school partnership scheme that focuses weekly term time bookings on schools from the most disadvantaged areas of the city. Bookings from these partner schools will take priority and the cost will be kept as low as possible.

How do we prioritise the most in need schools?

  • • Indices of multiple deprivation (IMD)
  • • Take up of free school meals
  • • Pupil premium received
  • • Local and community circumstances

    • Schools are invited to apply to become members of the School Partnership Scheme. If you are a local school who would like to get involved, please get in touch.

      The charity team will contact the schools who they have identified as being potential partners and invite them to join the scheme. Later in the year the scheme will be launched at the centre as part of the (much delayed by COVID) official charity launch celebrations.

Time with our animals

We offer every child the opportunity to spend time with our animals, something which a lot of children do not get the chance to do.
