Welcome to Learning through Landscapes, the UK’s leading outdoor learning and play charity

We help children and young people to connect with nature, become more active, learn outdoors and have fun.

Our transformation of school grounds and teacher training, alongside an unrivalled knowledge and expertise gained through practical action and research, has led to our reputation as the UK’s leading school grounds educational charity.

While still predominantly working in the education sector, our expertise has now been successfully applied to a number of different fields including: dementia care; working with young homeless people; and species conservation.

Who We Work With



From Early Years settings all the way up to Secondary schools, we work with educational bodies to enrich, enhance and inspire outdoor learning and play.


Parents & Carers

Learning doesn’t stop at a school or nursery, it continues at home. Our plans can be used to help children develop in the safety of familiar surroundings.



We work with landscape architects and designers across the world to help design and implement new, exciting outdoor learning spaces.



We are proud to have levied over £24 million into schools and education settings to help transform spaces and practice.
