Outdoor education programmes

Our secondary outdoor education programmes are designed to enhance learning through hands-on, practical experience in the natural environment.

Our approach

It is well-known that the best way to learn is through practical experience and our secondary programmes use field studies, scientific investigation techniques and real-world examples to demonstrate concepts in biology, geography and environmental studies.

Our education centres

Our two education centres each have large, private nature reserves to give your class a unique, immersive experience and to give you peace of mind regarding their safety.  Find more information on both of our centres here.

A typical day

Schools typically choose two of our half day sessions or one full day session. A day runs from 10:00 to 15:00 for KS3, from 10:00 to 15:30 for KS4 and from 9:30 to 16:00 for A Level programmes, with a break for your packed lunch. All of our activities are planned and presented with the students' safety in mind, and are led by experienced staff who are First Aid trained and DBS checked.

All of our programmes can be tailored to your needs and syllabus requirements. Download our Programme Guides below to see more about our sessions and prices.
