Outdoor Education

We offer a therapeutic and education to children and young people who are hard to reach and who may have experienced difficulties with a more formal approach to education and rigid timetables. This approach has been very successful with children and young people who have been out of school for long periods of time or who found it difficult to adapt to a classroom setting due to behaviour difficulties.
