Pupils from two south Leeds schools visited an outdoor centre in Ilkley to enjoy a different type of learning.

The children, from Low Road and Windmill Music Federation, took part in a range of games and challenges at Nell Bank Outdoor Centre.

Executive headteacher Sally Sumpner said: “Many of our children never get the opportunity to go far from their homes, so it is a main aim of the federation to get them out and about and see something different to their own environment.“

The visit has been sponsored by Jeremy Nolan from Glentrool Capital Partners of Ilkley since June 2009. Nell Bank manager Bruce Fowler, said: “The environment is a huge contrast to that of inner city Leeds and it was a pleasure to see the undiluted joy on 
so many of the children’s faces. ”
