A unique school trip

Outdoor adventure and learning in the woods for primary schools

Make your class trip a Wild Learning adventure day to inspire, challenge and support practical learning and problem solving in an environment that’s dramatically different to the classroom. It’s also a lot of fun!

After seven years of working closely with teachers to design perfect class trips, we know how to deliver relevant and effective programmes of outdoor learning and explorative play that support classroom goals. Our days are tailored to your class: memorable, enjoyable and effective, and stress-free for teachers!

Everything was so well planned and ran smoothly. Having all the resources provided made the process very easy for us as class teachers. (St Mary's School Hampstead)

Once again thank you for a fantastic day. Lower school is ringing with approval of the day and our Senior Leadership team and Board of Directors have heard of your wonderful work.

Engaging children with the natural environment stimulates their senses, emotions and imagination. It develops confidence, resilience and independence.

Research from around the world shows that regular time spent outdoors

  • benefits mental health (reducing stress and anxiety, enhancing self-esteem)
  • supports physical health (bone and muscle strength, flexibility, maintaining a healthy weight)
  • improves personal behaviour (concentration, creativity, learning ability, teamwork and social skills).

Come for a one-off day as a class-bonding and teamworking session, or as a class reward, or come for multiple sessions on a range of specific topics and activities to complement your classroom teaching.

With site permission and access taken care of, robust site checks, risk assessment and safeguarding procedures, and professionally qualified and experienced staff, we remove the complexity and stress of an outdoor trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed all the sessions. Moving from one day to three sessions really made a difference as the children could build on their learning from week to week.

Even Ofsted recognises the benefits:

First-hand experiences of learning outside the classroom can help to make subjects more vivid and interesting for pupils and enhance their understanding. It can also contribute significantly to pupils’ personal, social and emotional development
