Learning outside the classroom

“The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky”

Margaret McMillan

Our magical grounds create the perfect environment to stimulate awe and wonder through discovery approach to learning. The curriculum is structured for a creative afternoon that simulates opportunities for children to learn outside, whether it’s is live dissection of an Ox Heart in Biology, exploring the inspiring History of the Building and its heritage in the Arts or climbing trees the balance of blending learning throughout the environment both inside and out is integral to provide our children with the breadth of learning needed to equip them for the future at senior school and beyond.

Activities and expeditions are designed to give all the children opportunities to work together, problem solve, encourage independent learning and to try new things where making mistakes is all part of the process!

Shelter building, knot tying, cooking on an open fire, scavenger hunts, clambering and climbing, insect spotting, pond dipping, nature trail detective work, mud and wood craft are all tackled with great enthusiasm.

We are very fortunate to have a working farm on our Moat Farm campus where students are taken on class visits. Pupils can also attend our Saturday Morning Farm Club and take horse riding lessons in our riding arena.
