Enrichment Activities

A rich and varied curriculum 

At The Outdoors School we believe that to become well rounded members of society learners should,  as well as exposure to a rich and wide curriculum, have an understanding of the world around them. We have a wide variety of enrichment activities on offer at The Outdoors School including a day a week of off site visits. We passionately believe all young people deserve exposure to a wide range of opportunities that raise their aspirations and help them find their place in the world.

At The Outdoors School we passionately believe that our learners deserve access to a wide, rich and varied curriculum . It is central to our ethos that we ensure our learners have the opportunity to become well rounded members of society and to have a good understanding of the world around them. In order to raise aspirations and cultivate that understanding we have a wide variety of enrichment activities on offer at The Outdoors School including weekly off site visits.

 

Summer 2021 Enrichment News

Build and Grow – Learners have been developing their own ideas and skills researching, designing, building and growing within their own school setting. This freedom within this area of the enrichment programme has helped learners to progress at their own pace. We are now enrolled on the Eco School and RHS School Gardening schemes and have got off to a flying start working towards our Eco School Green Flag recognition and School Gardening awards. 

Nature Play – We have been connecting with nature whist having fun…learners have been making things, drawing and painting, playing games, building obstacle courses, learning to trust each other through play, storytelling and so much more.

Offsite Enrichment Adventure Days – The offsite curriculum has given learners the opportunity to visit a variety of locations and experience and participate in activities that they may not otherwise have opportunity to do outside of school. We have had fantastic fun this term canoeing and Stand Up Paddleboarding, visiting wildlife and learning about conservation, whizzing down big drop slides and zip lines, navigating our way through a mazes, riding on trams, visiting waterfalls, exploring forests, making sandcastles, playing games and rock pooling at local beaches and taking part in a beach clean. So many adventures to be had….
