Proud to learn, proud to achieve

Outdoor Learning

Wilderness Schooling is an inspirational process that offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self esteem through hands on learning experiences in a natural environment. What makes this style of education work is that it plays to a child’s strengths in a meaningful context and therefore nobody fails. Mrs Laidler is our qualified Outdoor Learning and Wilderness Schooling Lead.

Children are fascinated by nature – our children have been discovering natural wildlife, building dens and campfire cooking on a fire pit.
