Taking learning outdoors is proven to boost children's engagement, working memory and communication skills!
Our outdoor workshops bring the messy, muddy, exciting experiences to your school. We design them to be a session to fuel excitement around your topic whilst ticking off curriculum objectives. Just take a look at the pages for each workshop below to see how much fun children have!

We aim to make our workshops affordable for the children to enjoy and therefore only deliver them to areas local to our Education Officers. Schools located within 15 miles of one of our Officers will have travel included - additional milage will be charged at 45p per mile.
If you are located just outside of these areas, please still get in touch. During our quieter periods of the year we may be able to reach you.
Quite period discounts
During our quieter periods of the year we offer a 10% discount on our workshops when you book for them to be delivered on these days.
Please specify whether you would like one of these in your enquiry form.

It was great seeing the children work collaboratively and trying new things. Especially seeing children who work well outside, have a chance to shine. I loved seeing them getting muddy and having fun!
