Out of School Activities

Welcome to our Outdoor Classroom!

Mill on the Brue Outdoor Activity Centre has been opening its doors to schools and unaccompanied children since 1982.  We have been using the outdoors to help children develop a wide range of skills, including problem solving, communication and resilience.  Outdoor learning has a huge range of benefits which has now been widely evidenced, acknowledged and accepted.

Most schools these days are used to working with external musicians, sports coaches, and dance teachers.  But what about using an external visitor to help with your history topic?

If you want a WOW factor to your history topic, trips out of school are the obvious way to go; there are many excellent museums that cater to schools. However, trips can also be expensive, a logistical nightmare and you run the risk of losing children in the gift shop or having them run off to look at the Egyptians when they are supposed to be concentrating on Greeks.
