Every young person should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development, whatever their age, ability or circumstances.
Learning beyond the classroom is the use of places other than the classroom for teaching and learning. It is about getting children and young people out and about, providing them with challenging, exciting and different experiences to help them learn.
It is about raising achievement through an organised, powerful approach to learning in which direct experience is of prime importance. This is not only about what we learn but importantly how and where we learn. It is not an end in itself but rather a vehicle to develop the capacity to learn. Good quality learning beyond the classroom adds much value to classroom learning.
Sadly, due to Covid restrictions opportunities for educational visits have been limited recently. Hopefully we can begin more visits soon.
