We recognise the benefits of Outdoor Education and Learning Outside the Classroom (LoTC) by providing the opportunity to transform learning, work collaboratively with others, and raise achievement.

“… education is more than the acquisition of knowledge. Improving young people’s understanding, skills, values and personal development can significantly enhance learning and achievement. Learning outside the classroom is not an end in itself, rather we see it as a vehicle to develop the capacity to learn”.
Learning Outside the Classroom Manifesto (2006)
