The Outdoor Learning Centre has 55 acres of arable land and woodland on the Broadlands Estate, with a Forest School, Climbing Wall, Archery Range, Classrooms and a growing farm. This creates a perfect environment for young people to explore and grow in all aspects of their development.
The use of Forest School and Outdoor Learning Activities for long and short-term programmes are hugely beneficial in enabling young people to engage within a natural space. They focus on developing personal, social and emotional life skills through learner led, nature-based learning, whilst accessing a curriculum that develops key skills such as English, Maths and Science in these activities
Activities are run at our farm sites or at other activity centres to provide a holistic approach to meeting the emotional and educational needs of our students. Thus allowing relationships based around trust and self-exploration to develop, which promotes positive engagement and supports the student in growing self-confidence.
