Learning Outside The Classroom
"The best classroom and the richest cupboard is only roofed by the sky"
MARGARET MCMILLAN (C 1925)
By taking children out of the classroom into our outdoor spaces we spark their imagination, allow them to meet new challenges, and explore curriculum areas in a fresh way. Wherever possible we take learning beyond the classroom. The children love exploring the world outside and getting their hands dirty. Amongst the highlights are our gardens, which are specifically designed for these different activities. We are particularly proud of our ongoing sustainable permaculture project.
We also run a number of community projects that support learning, including a project where our older students have partnered with a higher education institution to look at connections between music and welfare for the elderly, building on our links with a local care home.
