Schools Outdoor Learning Adventures

Let us bring the adventure to your school grounds…

From 1 September 2020 Notts Outdoors will be offering activity sessions at your school grounds. We can provide a wide range of activities that we'd normally deliver from our day and residential centres. Our activities enrich the curriculum and engage learners in a fun way. We will provide qualified and experienced instructors or teachers with all the resources required to deliver an outdoor learning adventure in your school grounds.

Since the Covid-19 outbreak, our team at Notts Outdoors has been working with children of key workers in schools, and those returning to school following restrictions. We've received some great feedback about our SOLA days - here are just a couple of examples:

“The children loved it and got a lot from it! Katie was fab with the children - all activities clearly explained and pitched to age groups. Very good linking to COVID-19 procedures, eg hand sanitising children regularly.” Holly Primary, June 2020
"I just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed your [SOLA Victorian Day] visit on Tuesday. The children haven't stopped talking about it and they have learnt so much! However, they did agree that they would rather go to school today than in Victorian times! I hope that things return to normal soon and maybe next year we will be able to visit you at Perlethorpe." Cropwell Bishop School, June 2021

Outdoor learning is suggested to significantly reduce any risk of COVID-19 transmission, and as part of Nottinghamshire County Council our programme of activities has been reviewed and endorsed by the authority’s Health and Safety team under the guidance of Public Health England. Schools Outdoor Learning Adventures (SOLA) activities will continue to remain under constant review in light of the government's and Department for Education’s COVID-19 guidance.

Whether it's adventurous or curriculum based we have a wide range of activities to select from. To make an enquiry about any of the following activities simply complete the form at the bottom of the page.
