Pioneer Centre - Action Centres UK


Releasing Potential in All

Description

The warmest of welcomes awaits you at the Pioneer Centre.
ACUK’s Pioneer Centre is one of the UK's most premier recognised specialist venue for superb adventure activity holidays and conferences.

Situated in stunning countryside on the edge of the Wyre Forest, we are within easy reach of Birmingham and the national motorway network. Together with ACUK the Pioneer Centre has a combined experience of over 55 years in inspiring and motivating people, groups and organisations.

Pioneer Centre offers unrivalled en-suite accommodation under one roof for groups of 12 to 300 seeking 'best value' for their residential event. The six en-suite accommodation wings also allow a number of smaller groups to remain separate, secure and individually cared for whilst enjoying Pioneer Centre’s rural location and facilities.

Welcoming nearly 20,000 guests each year the 25 acre Canadian themed site is perfect for school & youth adventure / training / curriculum residential/conferences or group holidays.

We have been awarded the LOtC Quality Badge and are AALA licensed to deliver a full range of activities - from a single instructed activity session to a full-on adventure to remember.

Children had an amazing time using the outdoor adventure equipment and learning group skills (December 2021 - Primary School)




Year 6 pupils really enjoyed this experience. Team building activities helped to improve confidence and the chance to be out and about with friends was a real treat after the recent lockdowns. (December 2021 - Primary School)




Tremendous organisation. Clear outcomes met. (September 2021 - Primary School)

Centre was welcoming and accomodating especially with the diatary requirements of the group. The activites were popular with the group especially the inflatable challenge. (December 2019 - Secondary School)




A good choice and range of activities which have been recently improved upon. Trainers were enthusiastic with children and encouraging. They led activities safely and with good knowledge. Bedrooms were clean and food was good. (December 2019 - Primary School)




(November 2019 - Primary School)

A great place to visit for a school residential. appropriate for Year 4 pupils and children of all needs and abilities. (July 2019 - Primary School)




A great place for outdoor activities. (June 2019 - Primary School)




Activities are great with a wide range, instructors are good at encouraging unsure children. Food is plentiful, but basic, child-friendly, fare (chips, beans, sausages, etc). Salad/pasta bar is really good. Accommodation basic, but clean and comfortable enough for a short stay. Admin/Reception are really helpful and friendly. (June 2019 - Primary School)

(June 2018 - Primary School)




Activities provided are enjoyable, and the children learn a lot from them. Catering isn't as good as it has been previously (although still healthy and plentiful), and the accommodation is beginning to look a little tired and in need of refurbishment (although it is still perfectly adequate for the needs of the guests). Some staff are more confident and out-going than others. Overall, the children enjoyed it. (June 2018 - Primary School)




Brilliant provider, took care of all of our extra needs. Made sure all students were engaged and happy. Good relationships with students and staff in a very short period of time. (May 2018 - Secondary School)




Excellent place for children (February 2018 - Primary School)
