EDUCATION OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM
Outdoor education provides a unique experience that few other activities can rival. It gives our students an opportunity to develop initiative, resourcefulness and a better self-awareness. Furthermore, it stimulates an appreciation of the environment and broadens the horizons of our students.
Our Education Outside The Classroom programme provides an opportunity for students to:
develop self-awareness and conﬁdence in their own abilities;
increase their personal ﬁtness level;
develop and practice a diverse range of skills;
increase awareness of the environment and
enjoy the social and personal beneﬁts of interaction with others.
It is diﬃcult to overstate the beneﬁts of a well-planned outdoor education programme on the health, happiness, character and growth of our emerging adolescents. Outdoor education not only promotes self-reliance and teamwork, but also aﬀords a sense of community that embraces the whole school. We believe it improves group relationships, with the students becoming more caring and thoughtful of others. Students demonstrate a sense of their own achievement and are supportive and appreciative of their classmates' achievements.
EOTC programmes provide students with access to hands-on experiences that are not available inside the classroom. They offer unique and stimulating learning opportunities that support your child’s learning and achievement.
These programmes are aligned with the National Curriculum.
