Outdoor learning

We are able to offer our pupils an exciting programme of outdoor learning in our own grounds at Brantridge School. The staff member in charge is Donna Williams, Level 2 Forest School Practitioner. Pupils will spend one hour per week in the woods.

Outdoor learning is an inspirational process that offers ALL pupils regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.

Outdoor learning is a specialised learning approach that is child-led and play-based. Pupils enjoy a range of fantastic activities related to our whole school topics including:

  • Shelter design and building
  • Learning about the safe use of tools, knots and lashings
  • Environmental studies
  • Cooking
  • Arts and crafts

Apart from being fun, these activities can have an important impact on our pupils. Through the use of small achievable tasks and free play, the boys’ confidence will increase, their physical abilities will develop and their natural curiosity will be stimulated. This will impact positively on their willingness and ability to engage in the classroom.
