Secondary schools outdoor learning – bringing the curriculum to life.

The benefits of outdoor learning for Secondary Schools

Secondary schools outdoor learning has been central to our work for 30 years.

As children and young people face the most challenging times of their lives, outdoor learning and connection to nature is often lost in a world of revision and tech. There is a growing mountain of evidence to suggest that there is never a more important time for children to understand their place in the world.

By allowing secondary school students to study outside enables them to physically grasp complex curriculums while benefitting from mental health and physical wellbeing.
