Our brand new website at www.classroomoutdoors.org.uk has just launched to promote curriculum based activities at our residential centres!

Classroom Outdoors

Term time and midweek is when school groups tend to visit Alltnacriche and Lendrick Muir, with many schools choosing to return again and again for a five day programme or a shorter visit. Helen Hogg, Business Development Manager, says, “Education Scotland continues to promote the benefits of residential experiences and we have seen the value over many years with our own SU Holidays programme and this experience. Our work with schools focuses on the current Curriculum for Excellence, with centre staff working hard to provide excellent activity programmes in a safe, encouraging and rewarding environment.” Teachers visiting the centres regularly provide great feedback on what’s available. This comment is just one of many: “This was a wonderful experience for all. The staff were excellent. Many of our pupils may never have this opportunity again and have had a wonderful experience of working together to gain success." The new website makes it easy to pass on information about what’s available at the centres. We’d be delighted if you can let your local school know what’s available. We offer packages that are ideal for both primary and secondary groups.
