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.
These pages suggest ways you can assist your child’s school to maximise learning and safety during EOTC experiences.
