Symonds Yat - It's not called the Introductory Rocks section for nothing, but it is rather polished in places as a result. Often crowded with groups, too.
There are plenty of low grade routes scattered along the other sections, all with relatively easy access to the top and trees to anchor from, but you might need a long sling for some of them. Some can get quite vegetated from lack of traffic.
If he gets bored climbing, it is possible (although not necessarily recommended) to get into the caves from near the Longstone.
I took my 10 year old son to New Orleans Buttress at Symonds Yat recently. It worked well for us. There are a good range of 8m - 11m routes. It has an easy walk in via the Mailscot Wood trail from the bottom of the car park. The top is friendlier than some at the Yat if your son is with you when you are rigging, with good trees for setting up anchors.
