Wilder Schools

Ross Hoddinott/2020VISION

Nature underpins our entire society so it's vital children are able to connect with the natural world.

Study after study has shown that “environments rich in wildlife are also associated with improved well-being, through emotional, social and psychological benefits.” (Bragg et al, 2015) We also know that children are happier, healthier and more creative when connected to the natural world (The Wildlife Trusts, 2015), and more able to cope with stressful situations (Wells & Evans, 2003).

An Ofsted report in 2008 found that “when planned and implemented well, learning outside the classroom contributed significantly to raising standards and improving pupils’ personal, social and emotional development.”

Our Approach

Our sessions are planned with children in mind, involving a range of engaging, hands-on activities and games to suit all learning styles. Every session aims to encourage enquiry, creativity and teamwork as well as delivering subject-specific learning outcomes.
