Originally as part of a family Estate dating from 1774 the grounds which cover 25 acres are set in a conservation area and benefit from a wealth of natural charms and designed facilities that provide children with a lifelong experience. The grounds were named the “Gordon Brown Centre” in the 1980’s after a well-known scientist from Brent, who was a lifelong advocate of the centre and a strong believer in the benefits that it provides to a child’s development.
Children have been supported by a team of dedicated staff and visitors have received high quality services since 1976. We pride ourselves on providing visitors with a personalised visit built around their requirements.
Over the last 40 years our history has seen children return as our head teacher, supported by his teaching staff, bring to life their own experiences from childhood and embrace the passion for the impact it has had on their life. This ethos has reinforced the fact that we are “more than just an outdoor centre”.
The Gordon Brown Centre is operated by Brent Council.
