Outdoor Learning Days

Outdoor learningOur Outdoor Learning Days provide an opportunity for exploratory learning that supports curriculum topics, working with our primary education students and qualified teaching staff.

Pupils will take part in a range of outdoor activities such as pond dipping, meadow and woodland exploration. The day gives pupils the opportunity to experience nature in the safe, self-contained setting of our modern hillside campus. The activities will culminate in a mini-graduation ceremony in our outdoor learning area (weather permitting!).

Outdoor learning days generally run from 10.00am until 2.30pm, although accommodations can be made where necessary.
